It’s time for Fortnite Season 7, which means all new maps and changes.
Fans have wondered if it would bring with it a snow and ice theme and the trailer all but confirmed it.
An iceberg was seen drifting closer to the south coast and the snow began to gall on Spawn Island.
Teasers have said about ‘bitter ice’ and a ‘frigid day’.
So what does this cold snap spell for the map? Well, there’s a new snow map as the game gets into the Christmas spirit.
The Fortnite Season 7 map includes three new locations, Happy Hamlet, Frosty Flights and Polar Peak.
There are also a few unnamed locations that have appeared on the Battle Royale map as well as snowy areas.
When players move on frozen areas in some places they will slide as if its icy.
There’s also ziplines which are near the iceberg and expedition outposts.
You can latch on and zip from one side to the other, while aiming, firing and using any item.
The trailer also revealed a few other changes with players being able to throw hockey pucks onto icy areas. They then slide about so you could have a game of hockey!
The trees are also dusted with snow and the Happy Hamlets has buildings decked out like the North Pole and mini grottos.
Here’s what Epic Games has to say: “Season 7 arrives as the Iceberg collides with the island.
“Discover new areas such as Frosty Flights, Polar Peak, and more!
