The third, and presumably final, teaser image for Season 7 of Fortnite was released by Epic Games on Wednesday, December 5.

The release of the second teaser on December 4 showed a female character that seemed to be snowboarding down an icy slope while a much smaller character clinged to the edge of a cliff or zoomed down a zip line.

Our assumption was that the third image would zoom in on this smaller character and give us more of an idea of what was happening – an assumption based on the fact that image number two was an enlarged version of the much smaller character that could be seen in the first teaser on December 3.

That assumption appears to have been correct, as the third teaser has now been revealed and the tiny character can now be seen more clearly.

The caption for the image is as follows: “Ascend to new heights… Season 7 starts tomorrow!”

Zip lines look like they’re coming to Fortnite.

Our guess about the character being on some sort of zip line has also been confirmed, and we’re pretty sure that it’ll have something to do with the zip line leak from earlier this year. Look close enough, and you can even see a plane, so that leak also looks to have been proven true!

If you haven’t seen the second teaser image before, you can find it below. 

The second teaser appeared to be an enlarged section of the first image (below).

The general consensus within the Fortnite community throughout the latter half of Season 6 was that Season 7 would feature some sort of snow map and winter theme, and all of the teasers so far seem to confirm that assumption.

Add to this the fact that a mysterious iceberg has been seen making its way towards the map from the ocean and that snow has started to fall, and we feel pretty safe in saying that we will be having a white Christmas in Fortnite!

Season 7 is due to begin on Thursday, December 6, so we should have all of our answers very soon. Don’t be surprised to see more hints beginning to arrive throughout the rest of December 5 as Epic prepare for the grand reveal.

FaZe Clan announce top 20 finalists for FaZe5 & what’s coming next

The search for the next batch of FaZe 5 winners has dwindled down to just 20 finalists, who were unveiled by FaZe Clan on November 29 along with what’s happening next in the process.

Due to its rarity and prestige, FaZe5 always draws a lot of interest as it gives those aspiring to make a career out of gaming a chance to join the world’s biggest esports organization.

Tens of thousands of fans submitted tons of content during the competition’s open entry period, but only 100 survived the first cut when it was announced back on October 23.

Now, that list has been slashed again, down to just 20 – and all of the details for it can be found below:

FaZe 5 top-20 finalists

  • Proze – 22 years old
  • HunterTV – 20
  • Conrady – 20
  • Zenon – 9
  • Lough – 14
  • Zogoro – 22
  • Cannaestia – 35
  • K1ng – 14
  • Montoya Twinz – 20
  • Scope – 21
  • RowdyRogan – 6
  • Flea – 22
  • Faxuty – 22
  • NioRooch – 20
  • Virus – 22
  • Grant the Goat – 17
  • Milliam – 15
  • Stevie – 19
  • Cufboys – 22
  • Absorber – 17

How was the top-20 determined?

There are obviously a lot of factors that go into deciding who gets to move onto the next phase of FaZe5, including in-game skill, mastery of craft, ability to entertain, and wow-factor.

Following the top-100 announcement, those who advanced were given specific challenges to complete, including things like sending in something different than the original submission and making a ‘day in the life’ video.

They were also required to put forth an example of how they’d promote G FUEL, since all five winners will receive a sponsorship with the brand. That was followed by a collaborative challenge, one that paired up similar participants and required them to submit a single piece of content featuring them both in some way.

What’s next in FaZe 5?

Now that the top-20 has been announced, the next step is for them to complete another series of challenges in order to help the org decide who will be crowned a winner.

As things stand, there will not be another in-between cutoff from now until the winners get revealed, so whatever these 20 finalists get asked to do will hold a lot of weight in determining who survives the final stage.

Here’s a reminder of what’s on the line:

  • Nissan Kicks SUV (only for first-place)
  • $20,000 signing bonus
  • G FUEL endorsement contract for 3-6 months

FaZe have not yet announced when the five victors will be unveiled, but if they follow the previous FaZe5, there will be an individual video released for each winner – one per day until all five are made public.
