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.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

FNCS stream

As always, Epic Games will be hosting their own broadcast for the FNCS Season 4 events, complete with commentary and analysis to make sure you catch all the action as it happens. You can check out the official Fortnite FNCS stream on their official Twitch channel, which has been embedded below.


FNCS Season 4 dates

FNCS Season 4 will run across four weeks ⁠— three weeks of qualifiers, and one week for finals. If you want to sign yourself up, these are the dates you need to know.

  • FNCS Week 1: October 9 – October 11
  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18
  • FNCS Week 3: October 23 – October 25
  • FNCS Finals: October 29 – November 1

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
