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.


Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
