UPDATE – December 2, 2018
Epic Games Community Coordinator Sean Hamilton has confirmed that this “leaked” trailer is indeed a fake.
The video you're referring to is indeed fan made and not an official trailer.

Fortnite fans who are gearing up for the beginning of Season 7 are searching for any leaks of what is to come – regularly falling for fake videos and screenshots.
As the hype for Fortnite Season 7 continues to build up, so do the fake leaks of the skins, loading screens and trailers for what is about to come.
In a video posted to Reddit, the supposed trailer shows characters on the island before switching to showing a portal being summoned in the sky by two-Wizard like players.
Other players around them jump in shock, looking skywards to see what just might come out of these portals. However, their shock turns into surprise as snow begins to fall. The addition of snow is easy as the new season has been built around the winter theme – with the battle pass ending in December and the start of the Winter Royale Tournament.
While the video looks real enough, there’s much speculation that it’s actually just a well-done fake.
There is likely to be some sort of snow storm that hits the current map in Season 7. However, fans who have bought into this particular leak will be disappointed to know that Epic Games don’t usually include these trailers in the game until the day of the update’s release.
Further, this ‘leak’ does not contain the Iceberg that has been slowly inching inland towards the Fortnite map. Eagle-eyed fans who have been monitoring the Iceberg’s progress noted that a castle structure could be seen peering out. Lights have now switched on, showing that the building is occupied, which has only added to the excitement.
The current Battle Pass runs out on December 5, which means the newest season won’t be too far behind.
