The cameo of the sword in the launch trailer for Season 7 of Battle Royale has been seen as a very unique and entertaining Easter Egg with players excited to see Epic Games bring a fan favorite item from one of their past games into their hit battle royale title.

There are three stages to this Season 7 week 1 challenge in Fortnite, and the first tasks you with dancing on top of a crown of RVs.

Thursday's seasonal update also adds some new wintry locations, such as Frosty Flights, Polar Peak, and Happy Hamlet. Aside from those, players can also shimmy around the map with ziplines, which will certainly make the game even more dynamic.

The new Ziplines have been added all over the map nearly wherever there are mountains.

We've included a screenshot of the map above, followed by where you'll want to land and dance to successfully complete stage one of this challenge.

So, what is this Creative Mode that the battle pass gets you early access to? You'll also be able to play user-made maps from other players.

With every new season, of course, comes a new Battle Pass.

As far as who decides which creations are good enough to appear at The Block, Mustard said that "we're going to all pick it together", which is rather vague, but Epic have already recommended players to post their creations on social media and use #FortniteBlockParty.

The Block will be the dedicated area for player-created content, and players will help determine what gets featured in that area. The outstanding new additions are the Fortnite season 7 map changes - including the new ice biome - plus some fun Fortnite planes to fly over the map.
