All the rumors and speculation about a winter theme coming to Fortnite Battle Royale for Season 7 seems to have been confirmed as snow is now falling!

The first Season 7 teaser image, which was released on December 3, appeared to drop a massive hint that the theories were correct as it showed an icy silhouette and came with the caption: “A bitter ice spreads… 3 days to Season 7.”

Various other leaks and in-game hints also suggested that things were beginning to get a bit colder for the inhabitants of the game, but a discovery on December 4 all but confirmed that the rumors were correct!

Approximately half an hour before the expected release of the second teaser image for Season 7, the fnbr.new Twitter account shared a video of snow falling the map, saying: “It’s snowing at spawn island!”

We’re currently unsure whether the snow is falling on the main Battle Royale map or not – we’ll keep you updated.

There is also a large iceberg which appears to be moving ever closer to the Fortnite map, and is hinted at in the first Season 7 trailer.

The iceberg appeared to have a small castle at the top, and its lights are on, first spotted by players on December 2. It is likely that the Iceberg and/or castle will have a big role to play in whatever Season 7 has in store.

Some players anticipate a new snowy section of the map, with fans making concepts showing various parts covered in white, while others think that the entire map may be covered with a layer of snow.

Audio files also hinted at snow fall, or even a snow storm on its way to Fortnite, all in the lead up to Christmas and the winter season.

Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
