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.
