‘Fortnite’ Latest News & Update: Players Could Soon Fly Airplanes via Bumble Vehicle

“Fortnite” has had many things changed and added to it over the course of its brief existence, and it seems like there is yet going to be another major update coming. It might have to do with a Bumble vehicle that the developers will be adding to the game. Based on the files that were leaked, it would appear that it could be an actual airplane.

The absence of drivable vehicles in “Fortnite” was one of the biggest gripes that players have of the game. Then again, it’s not as if they were really necessary since the map of the island isn’t even that big. Even so, this doesn’t get rid of the fact that Bumble might be coming to the game and it might be an airplane. It supposedly follows the v6.22 patch recently updated, Comic Book reports.

For those who might want to hear what Bumble sounds like, there is a sound file of the vehicle posted on Twitter that fans can listen to. Although there is no guarantee based on the sound alone, it’s also unmistakable that it sounds like an airplane with a propeller. As to whether or not “Fortnite” players will even be able to fly it, this has yet to be confirmed.

Proceeding on the assumption that players will actually be able to play “Fortnite” by riding Bumble, this would be revolutionary for the title. As a Battle Royale game, this project by Epic has proven itself to be hugely popular. By adding the ability to actually zoom around the map on an airplane, it would only make the combat that much more entertaining.

As to when “Fortnite” players can expect to be able to use the feature, this has yet to be revealed. The latest patch notes mention no such vehicle, but this doesn’t mean that it won’t be coming eventually.
