It's Snowing in Fortnite as Season 7's Launch Approaches

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?

Snow has begun falling in Fortnite, marking the start of Season 7 next week when a massive snow event is expected to hit the island.

Epic Games announced the start of Season 7 by teasing some kind of sinister monster, confirming weeks of speculation that next season would be centered around a snow or ice-theme. There's already a storm cloud approaching the island and the temperature has been dropping as evidenced by a little cold breath.

While Season 7 begins next week, we can expect even more chilly teases as the days lead up to the launch. Will the snow begin frosting the windows of the buildings? When can we expect a winter wonderland?
