FORTNITE Season 7 will finally be bringing an end a memorable season of Halloween monsters, exploding cubes and floating rifts.
Despite remaining tight-lipped about what fans can expect next, Epic have finally released the first teaser for Season 7’s wintery sub-zero theme. Here’s all you need to know…
When is Fortnite Season 7 released?
Fortnite Season 7 is set ‘to kick off during Game Awards live stream’ Thursday, December 6, 2018.
Epic’s creative director, Donald Mustard, will be presenting a « world premiere » at The Game Awards at 9p.m. Eastern Time on Thursday (that’s 2a.m. on Friday in the UK).
Fans are advised to keep their game « real close » for the reveal, suggesting another one-off live event is planned following on from the rocket launch and the mysterious butterfly event.
Fortnite Season 7 will likely run through the winter until February 2019 as it looks to fend off the stiff competition from Call of Duty’s well-received battle royale mode Blackout.
Fortnite Season 7: Map changes, skins and theme
Epic has unusually remained extremely tight-lipped about the map changes for Season 7 but speculation is rampant about what may be in store.
As the new season approaches, a snowstorm has materialised upon the horizon on its journey to the Fortnite map and one player discovered an iceberg with a castle turret protruding.
A hint for the new skins has been reportedly spotted on the app store.
While we can’t independently verify the image, it looks to match up with the above teasers perfectly.
While the new skins won’t be officially revealed for the next few days, the release of Fortnite’s physical copy, The Deep Freeze Bundle, hinted at the skins to come.
Bundled with the free game are 1,000 V-bucks, the in-game currency, as well as the Frostbite Outfit, Cold Front Glider, Chill-Axe Pickaxe and Freezing Point Back Bling.
How much will the Fortnite Season 7 Battle Pass be?
Season 7’s Battle Pass is expected to continue with the same pricing structure as seaons past, which will give players access to new skins and exclusive challenges.
The Battle Pass will likely cost 950 V-Bucks once again, which equates to around £7.99.
Since Epic introduced the new two-tier challenge structure, the Battle Pass is no longer a necessity for players who want a more casual but still interactive experience.
