Fortnite’s in-game news feed has been updated to reveal that a new vehicle called the Driftboard is coming to the game.
The Driftboard would be the second vehicle added to the game since the beginning of Season 7, with the X-4 Stormwing plane introduced to the game at the beginning of the new season in the V7.00 update.
There is very little information about the Driftboard available at the moment, however Epic Games have confirmed that the item will only hold one person at a time, meaning unless you can find a number of them together, they won’t be useful for squads looking to rotate around the map.
Hop on board and boost past your competition with this new single player vehicle!
With the item’s description on the news feed using the word “boost”, it’s likely that the Driftboard will feature some kind of booster like the Quadcrasher, one of the other popular modes of transport inside the game.
Fortnite fans have been anxious to see whether a snowboard-like item would be added to the game ever since the teasers for Season 7 dropped, featuring an icy figure riding what appears to be a snowboard. It’s likely that the Driftboard is what the character is using to fly around.

There is currently no official release date for the Driftboard, however it’s likely that the item will release with the Fortnite V7.10 update, which is expected to drop on Wednesday, December 19.
Epic Games have already began to tease the arrival of the new Driftboard, using a tweet to start to build hype for the vehicle.
