There have been rumors about Season 7 of Fortnite that is all set to hit the servers on December 7. Season 6 was a hit with the fans with all the pets, and new additions to the game. Season 7 of Fortnite comes just in time for the winter holiday season, which also makes snow a major theme for the game developers all over. And Epic Games is getting in the spirit as well.
The newest addition to the anticipation for Season 7 comes from Epic Games in terms of an image in a tweet that shows a shadowy figure with an ice crown and the words, “A bitter ice spreads…” This could be indication that new modes are coming designed around ice and snow themes. And the shadowy ominous figure wearing a crown could indicate a mode with a boss as an enemy like Dota 2’s Frostivus. But if we take a closer look at the left shoulder of the shadowy character then we will notice a miniature silhouette of a person skiing. This could indicate that skiing would be a big part of the game next.

We already have hints of a snow map as players have noticed a storm that is brewing near the south edge of the map. This could be the indicator of impending snow storms that will be hitting the game soon.
The snow theme has already been hinted at by the devs with the new Deep Freeze Bundle, and the new Winter Royale themed tournament. And besides this, there are some leaks on Reddit that claim to be crunching sounds of footsteps on the snow. And apparently, the new information that has been released by VG247, who even verified this new information with a second tweet. The footsteps on snow will not be the same as that on the snow in Viking Village. These are some strong indicators that Fortnite might just be getting a new snow map.
