Fortnite season 7: Has Epic Games just dropped a BIG hint about the next Battle Pass? | Gaming | Entertainment
Fortnite season 7 is still awhile off but that hasn’t stopped fans wondering what’s coming in the next Battle Pass.
We have a good idea of when the Fortnite season 7 release date could be thanks to an in-game countdown running in Battle Royale at the moment.
In the Fortnite season 6 Battle Pass it says how much time is left until the current season ends.
At the moment the countdown in the Battle Pass says the final full day to play Fortnite season 6 will be Wednesday December 5 2018.
Historically, new Fortnite seasons have begun the day after the final day of the previous Fortnite season.
So that could mean that Fortnite season 7 has a release date of Thursday December 6 2018.
However, Epic Games do have form is delaying the release of a number of their Battle Passes.
So the current Fortnite season 6 end date could be subject to change.
Ahead of the Fortnite season 7 launch Epic Games may have dropped a hint about what the next Battle Pass theme could be.
It has been rumoured that the Fortnite season 7 Battle Pass could have a wintery theme.
This comes after the Fortnite season 6 Battle Pass had a seasonal, Halloween theme.
And it’s been speculated that the Fortnite season 7 Battle Pass could follow suit by having a Christmas theme to it.
It would mean that Fortnite Battle Royale is following on from two big events last year and making them into entire Battle Pass themes.
The spooky theme for the Fortnite season 6 Battle Pass lines up with the Fortnitemares event that took place at a similar time in 2017.
While last year Survive the Holidays was the big event in Fortnite taking place over Christmas.
Could the Fortnite season 7 Battle Pass take cues from this event for its rumoured winter wonderland theme?
If that is the case, then Epic Games may have dropped a hint that plenty of festive content is coming to Battle Royale.
The Cary-based developer has revealed a brand new Fortnite bundle is arriving just in time for the festive period.
Epic Games are releasing the Deep Freeze retail version of Fortnite which boasts winter themed items and a bundle of V Bucks.
The boxed, physical copy of Fortnite also comes with a skin, glider and backbling set.
This Deep Freeze version of Fortnite is being released in November while Fortnite season 6 is still going on.
But plenty of kids will surely be opening this under their Christmas tree on Christmas Day – when Fortnite season 7 is going on.
Will this snowy Fortnite artwork be relevant to the theme of the season 7 Battle Pass going on then?
Only time will tell, but surely Epic Games have a few surprises up their sleeves between now and the eventual Fortnite season 7 launch.
