Fortnite Season 6 is coming to an end, and next month, we’re about to welcome and enter the Fortnite Season 7.
While we’re still a week before the release of Season 7, it seems like we already have the idea what to expect next month. According to the recent leak, Fortnite Season 7 may feature a new winter-themed map, which means players are about to enter the cold and snowy terrain in the game. Knowing that December is the period of the cold season in the northern hemisphere, it’s not surprising if we see a snow-themed map on Season 7.
Update: Official Fortnite Season 7 map is out!
Below are the exported sound files that the Athena Footstep Sound files call. I made sure to check and these sounds are NOT the same as the Snow Sounds at Viking Village. So, this can conclude the fact that we will most likely see a snow map during Christmas! [2/2] pic.twitter.com/lZPAFLNTSJ

Apart from the codes and sound effects data mine, another hint that makes us believe that a snow-themed map is coming in Fortnite is the snowstorm that can be spotted on the horizon to the southern part of the map. As the day passes by, the snowstorm is slowly growing which may cause a snowfall once it reaches the island. If that happens, here’s what the Fortnite map will look like.
Fortnite Season 7 Release Date
While no official announcement has been released yet, the in-game challenge timer shows that Fortnite Season 7 is coming on the 7th of December.
Based on the previous release of Season 6 which is Thursday, most likely the patch will be released on the same day and the actual season will begin the next day.
