After a lot of contention from the community involving planes, Epic Games has finally decided to remove them from the game entirely.
Epic Games has confirmed Fortnite will be removing planes for Season 8.
This news was revealed in an Ask Me Anything thread on Reddit where players were able to ask questions about the game.
The vaulting of planes will likely be met with a ton of excitement by many members of the community as it never truly felt like planes belonged in Fortnite.
Here’s a look what some members of the community already had to say about the news.
