Fortnite is adding the sword from Infinity Blade, and changing its map again

UPDATE: Patch notes confirm it's a one-time drop.

UPDATE 11/12/18: Today's patch notes confirm the Infinity Blade will indeed be a one-off weapon available every match from the newly-opened up Polar Peak, the Ice King's lair.

UPDATE: Launches tomorrow if you buy a Season 7 Battle Pass.

Everyone else will gain access to Creative mode in a week's time, on 13th December.
