The third teaser image has been released for Fortnite Season 7 and we’re noticing a trend. The seventh season is just a day away and it brings frigid weather and seemingly several new methods of transportation.
In each image teasing the new season thus far there’s been a smaller background image that has been blown up to make up the next photo. We zoomed in on a snowboarder and now we’ve zoomed in on a zipliner with what appears to be an airplane as the next item to be featured as the centerpiece of the upcoming teaser image.
The caption for the freshly released teaser image reads “Ascend to new heights… Season 7 starts tomorrow!” Featured in the image is a player wielding a SCAR sliding down a zipline with a small plane in the background.

With these details, 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, planes, and whatever else Epic may be able to cook up. These are all assumptions but with how Epic does things, I don’t think anyone would be surprised.
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.
Thursday during #TheGameAwards don't miss a @fortnitegame announcement and world premiere from Epic's @DonaldMustard, streaming live at 9 PM ET / 6 PM PT everywhere. And oh yeah, keep your game close. #WorldsWillChange pic.twitter.com/hh7VQNpLD1
