Fortnite has only been around for just over a year, and gamers are already into Season 7.

The new winter-themed map has made some changes in terrain while doing a good job at adding some new locations. Some new locations include Happy Hamlet, Frosty Flights, and Polar Peak, and other new unnamed locations. Season 7 definitely has a lot happening at once, compared to other seasons. Epic Games, the makers of Fortnite, seem to have outdone themselves to a fault on this one.

In all honesty, I believe that the creators tried to do too much at once with the addition of planes, zip-lines, and, for a while, the “Infinity Blade.”  They just tried to make season seven too big of a deal when they could have added things more gradually. The well overpowered Infinity Blade only lasted in the new season about a week, and most were glad to see it go.

As mentioned, planes are also a new addition in the Season 7 update, and they are equipped with turrets that can be used any time during a flight.  Planes were also considered overpowering by most players as well, however, I feel that there is a simple fix to planes and that is just lowering the time it takes for one to get shot down, or just take away the ability to be able to fly the plane into something without it giving the pilot any damage.

The Season 7 Battle Pass is pretty much the same as the others, but there is a difference in rewards. The first two tier-one skins include “Zenith” and “Lynx.” The tier-100 skin is “The Ice King.”

My overall thoughts on the new season are that Epic Games just tried too hard to add too many things at once and in a way, messed it up. But now, except planes, Fortnite is back to the Battle Royale that we all know.
