It seems like fans of Fortnite may need to say bye bye to their love-hate relationship with the X-4 Stormwing Plane. Confirmed by one of the developers at Epic Games, planes would no longer be a thing when Fortnite Season 8 arrives.
The X-4 Stormwing Plane has been one of the major staples of Fortnite’s Season 7. Not only did it finally introduce a new method of transport, but it also showcased what Fortnite’s Battle Island looks like from the skies. Soon after the introduction of the plan, fans felt that the plane was extremely overpowered and therefore, was nerfed, in the updates that followed. With the nerfs finally amended, players finally found the plane to be much more calming than its initial release.
With the X-4 Storming now finally being confirmed of being vaulted ahead of the beginning of Season 8, there’s a good chance that Season 8 may be bringing some decent changes to the map as well may even be introducing a new vehicle for the game. What that vehicle or map changes are is yet to be seen. But for now, the fate of Season 7’s new location, Frosty Flights, hangs in the balance.
For now, all we’re excited to see is how Fortnite story progresses over time now that Fortnite Season 8 is underway and by the looks of it, we’re expecting some major changes ahead of the season update. Let’s hope that the ziplines stay for good. You couldn’t appreciate them enough.
