The mysterious castle outside of the Fortnite map now has its lights on and is moving towards the playable area.

A gigantic iceberg appeared in Fortnite and the top of what looks like a castle tower was barely visible, peaking out of the mass of ice.

The iceberg was far from where players could reach in-game while playing and could only be spotted up close through camera glitches or replay mode exploring.

However, that may be changing in Season 7 as the iceberg is now moving towards the map.

The movement is not the only hint as the castle seems to be occupied. Lights are now on.

There are a few Fortnite skins that would be home in a winter themed castle, like the Norse themed Magnus and Huntress, however much of Season 7 is still a mystery.

The iceberg is another hint that Season 7 will be filled with winter and snow themes, players have previously spotted audio clues and other leaks that point to a snow storm hitting the map.

Season 7 in Fortnite does not have a firm release date at this time, however it is expected to start sometime in the middle of December. Season 6’s Battle Pass runs out on December 5, which means the next season could start up shortly after.

The castle lights are not the only clue so far, strange portals are popping up for Nintendo Switch players.

Fortnitemares 2020 could be bringing back Zombie Husks with a twist

Fortnite’s annual Halloween event has evolved over the years though new leaks stemming from the 2020 iteration of Fortnitemares could hint at a return of controversial Zombie Husks.

Introduced back in 2017, Fortnitemares began as a Save The World event. It soon expanded as the spooky festivities took over the battle royale mode in 2018 as well. It was in this version of the annual event that players were forced to fend off hordes of Zombie Husks.

Cubes would spawn around the map as dozens of AI-controlled Husks would charge toward squads. It could often be overwhelming and outright end your run if they’re not taken care of instantly. This led to a rather drastic change in the 2019 event where individual Zombies would spawn at random while looting instead.

While certain emotes and various items have already leaked, we now have a new piece of intel on the upcoming Fortnitemares event. Nothing is set in stone though it appears the 2018 threat could be returning in some form.

Zombie Husks were quite controversial in the 2018 Fortnitemares event due to just how many spawned at once.

In Fortnite’s 14.30 update, plenty was changed on the surface and under the hood. As new content was added in, Epic Games also made some secret adjustments in preparation for the Halloween-themed event.

“A sound for the Zombies cube spawners was changed in 14.30,” prominent dataminer ‘Mang0e revealed. While this could be nothing of significance, it would be odd for the developers to make a change like this out of the blue.

There’s no telling exactly how these cube spawners will be adjusted, though it seems certain they’ll be back in some form.

This means every player will need to be on high alert just like in 2018. You won’t have individual jump scares to worry about this year, but overwhelming swarms of AI could threaten your run.

We won’t have to wait long to see how the annual event evolves this time around. The 2020 iteration of Fortnitemares doesn’t yet have a date locked in. However, things typically kick off in the final week of October. 

Keep your eyes peeled over the next few days as the frightful update rolls around. In the meantime, be sure to get ahead of the upcoming event with our rundown on everything we know about Fornitemares 2020 so far.
