We’ve got good news and bad news for those who loved riding the planes on Fortnite.

The good news is that they might finally return to the game real soon. The bad news? The planes might return exclusively in Limited Time mode.

Hard working data miners were at work once again as they found a “PlaneLTM” file hidden among the many things added to Fortnite in the latest 8.30 patch. The name doesn’t really mean much if you think about it. We don’t know if it’s really the X-4 Stormwing coming back, or if it’s another plane, or if a plane really is going to come back. But, according to the data miners responsible for finding the hidden file, it’s highly likely that players can take to the skies in Fortnite once again.

If planes do indeed come back to Fortnite, it won’t be the first item that will be added back to the game in Limited Time mode.

The controversial item, Infinity Blade, was quickly removed after it was added to the game, citing balance issues. However, the item has since been added back into the game, albeit only in the Limited Time mode.

Planes were similarly controversial. This is because they forced Fortnite to essentially become a game of “who gets to the plane first”.

Countering the planes were next to impossible until later on in the game. This meant that whoever found the plane first could literally ride it until there were only a few players left. Some have even won entire games solely while riding on planes. Not to mention, planes also gave players an unfair advantage as it allowed them to jump into a gunfight after already being gunned down from above. Perhaps for this reason, and many others, Epic Games decided to remove the X-4 Stormwing from Fortnite at the start of season eight.

Epic Games themselves have yet to confirm what the discovery of the “PlaneLTM” file means. It is possible that it could be nothing and that planes might never be added back into the game again. But, at the very least, it gives fans of the X-4 Stormwing some hope.
