New Fortnite Update has finally arrived and it brings Season 7 to the game along with major new additions. Latest Fortnite patch is now live on PS4 and it weighs 5.3GB so start downloading.

You will not be able to play Fortnite after downloading the patch straight away as the servers are down for maintenance. Luckily, Epic Games has now released the patch notes which tell us that it’s the biggest Season in the game yet.

Patch notes reveal that update 7.0 in Fortnite is going to bring a variety of map, gameplay changes and Season 7. The main addition of this new update is the ability to fly above in the sky with Fortnite planes. You can now also decorate your vehicle with wraps and create your own world in Fortnite with the creative mode. There are also many new locations along with a new Iceberg Biome.

Overview of this new Fortnite update with patch notes is as follows.
