Fortnite Delays New Driftboard Vehicle

Epic Games is instead focusing on some quality of life improvements.

Epic Games announced that the new Driftboard vehicle teased for the newest season of Fortnite has been delayed along with the accompanying patch so that the developers can instead work on some quality of life changes.

In a post on the official Fortnite Reddit thread, Epic says that it wants players' experience on the Driftboad up to expectations. Epic didn't explain when the Driftboard would be coming, but instead said that there are "tons of quality of life and balance improvements on the way in v7.10."

The Driftboard was initially teased in the lead-up to season 7 of Fortnite via a promotional image. On Monday Epic tweeted out some emojis that seemed to tease the new vehicle some more, but as the reveal seemed to get nearer, Epic instead issued a delay. There were apparently some larger issues that caused both the Driftboard and the update to be delayed, which hopefully Epic can get ironed out soon.

The news follows another incident regarding a new addition to the Fortnite arsenal in season 7, the Infinity Blade mythic weapon. The melee weapon proved to be too overpowered upon launch and Epic decided to vault the sword and rethink Mythic items altogether. Perhaps Epic could benefit to scrutinize the balance of a new item some more before launch.
