The Fortnite Creative mode trailer dropped only minutes ago but there are people who have keen eyes and spotted plenty of stuff. Including what appears to be an Airplane. Could we see an Airplane in Fortnite and more importantly will it stay to the confines of Creative Mode or will it make its way to Battle Royale?
Airplane in Fortnite – Taking the game to new heights?
Look at the far right of the screen, you will see what looks like a World War 1 Airplane. It is in the slot which belongs to traps, jump pads and similar, meaning you will have to deploy it on a flat surface like the turret.
While the trailer has only given us a first look at the airplane, could it be that this could be an entire game changer for Battle Royale if the new mode of transport makes its way into the Battle Royale game mode? While the game already has shopping carts, Golf Carts, and recently ATV’s with boost, not many players make use of the transport modes when it comes to the final circle, since they have little utility in surviving and make you an open target.
The airplane could be a real game changer as there are people who do build sky bases in the game, where they camp in the sky with extensively built flat surfaces so that they can outlast and out heal the competition on the ground.
Considering the game has introduced Turrets and Dynamite into the game, the prospect of flying over the map is a new prospect which sounds exciting to the person in the cockpit but terrifying to the people on the ground.
Keep in mind this is merely speculation and with any hope the airplane will stay within the confines of creative mode where it can be used as the user wishes. Adding it to Battle Royale would mean balancing it out properly and perhaps is the entire reason why the turret was added in the first place?
