Fortnite's V7.40 Content Update Adds a Cool Looking Hoverboard and New Limited Time Mode

By Laura Kate Dale on at

Another week, another update to Fortnite has landed ready for the masses to play. Today's new update is V7.40, and it mainly focuses on adding one new tool to the game: hoverboards.

Called the driftboard, it will allow players in battle royale mode to boost, pull off tricks, and fire weapons while riding it. You can even revive allies without getting off the board; the only thing you miss out on is the ability to build. The item is a limited time item, so we have no idea how long you'll be able to find it in game, but it's there now if you want to give it a whirl.

Coming alongside the driftboard, battle royale mode is getting a new limited time mode called Driftin'. In this mode, driftboards will be pretty common, and riding on one will cause your health and shields to regenerate slowly.

For creative mode players, the driftboard and infantry rifle have now been added for use in creative maps.

Save the World players also get the new driftboard, as well as a new week of challenges to complete.

That's pretty much it for Fortnite's V7.40 content update. If you want all the specific details about balance changes, you can find those here.
