The Fortnite Driftboard was originally meant to release before Christmas but got delayed due to some “quality of life changes” that Epic wanted to make.
The Fortnite patch notes for update 7.40 also revealed that Battle Royale fans will be getting two new LTMs – the Driftin and Catch limited time modes.
