This is bound to make navigation tougher for the players as now many areas will be covered with snow.
Fortnite Season 7 players will also see a new Creative Mode, which will allow the players to customise maps and also play using maps made by other players. This mode will help the players in availing unlimited time to play around, and they will be able to save the changes for later as well. Another new addition in the game is the new Battle Pass for the players, which they will be able to buy for $10 (~Rs 700) for unlocking additional rewards. Like other seasons, Fortnite has also installed 100 tiers for the players to unlock this season.
