The Fortnite Twitter has tweeted that downtime for the seventh Season will begin tomorrow, December 6th, at 4 AM ET (0900 UTC). This should last 1-2 hours.

If you've missed all the new stuff on its way for Fortnite season 7, make sure you check out the Fortnite patch notes 7.0 in full. There are seven different spots for your to dance in in total, and your reward is five juicy Battle Stars. Creative mode is limited to friends or invited folks only, and supports up to sixteen players. Unfortunately, it looks like the project won't be completed, as Tim Sweeney confirmed today that while Unreal Tournament will remain available to download in its current state, there will be no more updates. On top of that, when using balloons in Fortnite now, you can use weapons and items alongside. (Expect to see more there soon!) Fortnite wraps don't provide any gameplay advantages, so no damage buffs or anything like that. It has a mounted machine gun, and it's capable of producing sharp turns, and flying upside down. The options provided are immediately familiar for anyone's who's played around in Forge, too - there are basic free-for-all or deathmatch modes available, you can assign teams, time limits and spawn locations. Both boost and airbreak can be used for some extra mobility. Stay Frosty and prepare to dive into the new content once the downtime is over.

The above Twitter post dares players to "ascend new heights". However, it could also make for some fun skating moments!
