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.

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Mando and The Child are in Fortnite Season 5.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

When is Fortnite’s v15.10 update and Winterfest?

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.
