Yet more evidence of Fortnite Battle Royale using a snow theme for Season 7 has been found following the release of the November 27 patch.

The release of the v6.31 update saw shotguns getting some love from Epic Games, and even the addition of Epic and Legendary variants of the Pump Shotgun, but many fans are already setting their sights on what comes next.

Week 10 of Season 6 is upon us, and Season 7 is expected to begin in early December, so speculation about a potential winter theme has been growing on an almost daily basis.

With that in mind, it is probably unsurprising to hear that the November 27 patch included new files that relate to snow, the first of which were leaked by @FNBRLeaks on Twitter:

Players have also started noticing that characters appear to be breathing ice-like breath when you look closely, confirming leaks of files named ‘ColdBreath’ from the likes of @FortTroy.

FortTory found even more files, ranging from ‘Ice Fog’ and ‘Corrupt Rock Ice’ to. We don’t know about you, but these all sound like confirmation of a winter theme to us!

You can find all of the files leaked by FortTory below. We’ll be sure to update you with more information as it becomes available.

With the majority of the community making it clear that they REALLY want a snow map this winter, it seems likely that Epic Games will try to be accommodating, even if they hadn’t planned on it originally.

Assuming the winter theme is in the works, we could be in for a real treat at the beginning of Season 7 because the switch from the standard map is sure to be the result of some sort of major event.

How to compete in Fortnite’s first Box Fight Tournament: date, prizes

Fortnite is about to launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative 1v1 competition in an arena designed by winners of last month’s Princess Castle Creative Contest. If you’re interested in competing, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite is a competitive game at heart, but it’s also a wonderful platform for creative players. It’s the reason why the creative mode is so popular. Players can build their own islands and share them with others.

Last month, Fortnite celebrated its third birthday by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest. Essentially, players had to create and submit their own version of a Box Fight map.

For those who don’t know, Box Fighting is when two players are fighting within one tile of each other and inside a box. It’s unique in the sense that it combines competitive and creative skills.

Two players named HassanFTN and Shride won the contest. Their arena, named “Island of Dreams” (9005-6737-3429), was chosen to be showcased in the first official Box Fight Tournament.

How to compete in the Box Fight Tournament

To compete in the Box Fight Tournament, all you need to do is look for the Box Fight Tournament LTM on the main menu once it’s available.

However, there is an eligibility requirement. Players will need to have reached Open League (Division II) in Arena before the tournament begins. Don’t stress if you haven’t though. It’s very easy to do and will only take a couple of games.

The format is pretty straightforward. Players will duke it out in a one on one Box Fight against other players in their region.

It will follow a traditional tournament structure with multiple rounds. The more rounds you win, the higher you will climb. The player with the most wins at the end of the tournament is the winner.

Box Fighting requires calculated attacks and solid defense.

When does the Box Fight Tournament start?

Fortnite players don’t need to wait long. The Box Fight Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 28, which means it’s only one sleep away.

However, that also means if you haven’t ranked up enough in Arena to be eligible, you’ll need to hop in and get started before it’s too late.

Box Fighting is an important skill in Fortnite. In many ways, it’s what separates the wolves from the sheep.

If you’ve mastered it, the tournament is a good way to test your skills. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t though. Taking part in the tournament is a good way to improve.
