Fortnite has received its next big, Season 7 update, bringing a holiday refresh alongside a new vehicle, Christmas-themed gun wraps and more. New iPad Pro users should also get a chance to push that overpowered A12X Bionic chip, as Epic Games has implemented 60FPS support for 2018 iPad Pro devices starting this week.

As with the last major Fornite update, visual tweaks are abundant all-around, however, some bigger changes are found here too. Primarily, snow is on the map now, meaning previously easy-to-scale areas might turn completely icy and difficult to maneuver.

There’s also the addition of the new X-4 Stormwing Plane, expected to bring major changes to how players travel and attack from around the map.

Also included in today’s Fortnite update is 60FPS support on the new iPad Pro. Further, 4x MSAA Anti aliasing has also been added back to iOS devices, meaning gameplay will look a lot crisper and more comparable to console-level graphics.

Epic Games says Android devices should see 60FPS support soon, however, iPad Pro users will get the first test.
