Take to the skies in Fortnite Season 7!

Season 7 has arrived with the smash of a mysterious iceberg! Winter has brought many changes to the Fortnite map for you to explore. Ziplines are a new way to help you travel to and from high terrain. For you chill and thrill seekers, the new Frosty Flights location and Expedition outposts are outfitted with the new Stormwing planes so you can take to the skies. There are tons of new areas to venture to and secrets to uncover, so stay frosty.

Battle Pass

A new season also means a brand-new Battle Pass:

  • Over 100 new exclusive rewards are ready for you to unlock, and it still costs the same 950 V-bucks.
  • This season, you get the Zenith and Lynx progressive outfits instantly when you purchase the Battle Pass, both of which can level-up to unlock new styles.
  • A new item type was also added: Wraps! These allow you to customize your weapons and vehicles with all new looks to match and complement your favourite outfits.
  • Battle Pass owners will also get early access to their own island in Creative: a brand-new place for you to build your dream Fortnite with your friends.

Please note that due to the holiday break this winter, Season 7 will be extended by two weeks and end on February 28. There will still be new updates coming out during that break period bringing new items and challenges. You can plan on more holiday cheer to hit before the New Year as well!
