We’ve seen the second Fortnite Season 7 teaser image revealed from Epic Games and it’s only helping to solidify our thoughts.
The image showcases the same blue/ice looking color scheme along with a snowboarder. The caption provided by Epic Games reads “A frigid day dawns… 2 days to Season 7.”

We’ve already seen character skiing and now a snowboarder in the two images released thus far which we’re taking as hints at what’s to come. In addition, the smaller figure trailing the snowboarder appears to be ziplining, another possible method of transportation making its way to the game.
With the new details in this photo alongside the previous, we’re expecting a completely new look for the map with mountains being transformed to snow-covered peaks and bodies of water to be frozen over. This change will also allow for the addition of new items such as skis, snowboards, snowmobiles, and whatever else Epic may be able to cook up.
It is expected that this announcement or reveal will take place as part of “The Game Awards” show this Thursday thanks to a tweet from Geoff Keighley, the Producer and Creator of the awards show. He reveals that the Creative Director of Fortnite, Donald Mustard will be streaming live to make an announcement from the show.
