The popular video game has received a lot of gameplay changes, new items, and special features lately, and its developer keeps working hard to keep players entertained with fresh new content. Season 7 is going to end very soon, and "Fortnite" players are able to earn the Season 8 Battle Pass for free!

The only thing players have to do is to complete the Overtime challenges.

The "Fortnite Battle Royale" developer had revealed the Driftboard a long time ago. This mobility item was supposed to be originally released with the v7.10 patch, but Epic Games had to delay it due to some bugs. Fortunately, it appears that the video game creator has fixed these problems as the item will come out with the v7.40 content update. Let's hope there won't be any issues with it this time!

The Fortnite Driftboard

The Driftboard is another mobility item "Fortnite Battle Royale" players will be able to use. According to leaks, the item will be available in the game only for a limited time, similar to the Jetpack and the Infinity Blade, and there will be a special limited-time game mode for it.

While Epic Games hasn't revealed anything about this item, there have been a few leaked videos that showed us what it's going to look like.

It appears that the Driftboard will be as fast as the Quadcrusher and players will be able to perform different tricks with it, just like with every other in-game vehicle. It is a one-player vehicle and it appears that it grants fall damage immunity as well.

You can see what the upcoming item looks like in the video above.

The in-game footage was captured by JH9 who used the Driftboard in the "Driftin" limited-time game mode. Considering that the item is coming with the v7.40 content update, we can expect this LTM to be released at the same time.

Judging from the video, every weapon in the upcoming limited-time game mode is going to be Legendary. It is also going to be a two-team mode, and there will most likely be around 40 players in a lobby. Furthermore, the leaked mode could have some vaulted items as we can see that the player who recorded the footage has the Grappler in the inventory.
