New Fortnite Leak Suggests Imminent Snow Event (VIDEO)
Now that the face-stuffing Thanksgiving proceedings have thoroughly concluded, gamers are likely looking towards the holiday season that decorates the remainder of the year. It looks as though battle royale phenomenon Fortnite is also doing the same, as a number of potential details have surfaced suggesting an upcoming winter event.
According to recent bout of data mining from FNBRLeaks, several new sound files have been discovered that heavily suggest snowfall in the game’s near-future. Not only do the files’ naming structure contain references to “snow,” but the audio itself lets out a few crunchy footsteps one would associate with fresh powder. Take a listen below.
Below are the exported sound files that the Athena Footstep Sound files call. I made sure to check and these sounds are NOT the same as the Snow Sounds at Viking Village. So, this can conclude the fact that we will most likely see a snow map during Christmas! [2/2] pic.twitter.com/lZPAFLNTSJ

A report that winter is coming happens only a few days following another snowy discovery within the game. Additional evidence gathered by VGR also points to an incoming snowstorm, with the outlet noticing a heavy collection of clouds forming in the sky south of Flush Factory.
While either of these happenings wouldn’t hold up much on their own, the two together begin to paint a pretty conclusive picture; one likely transforming Fortnite into a winter wonderland for the holidays. The evidence and precedence surely seems to be there, especially following October’s epic Halloween-themed Fortnitemares event.
In the meantime, Fortnite has hardly begun to look alot like Christmas, with several non-holiday events currently peppering the game’s landscape. Food fights are breaking out in a new Limited-Time Mode, a Wild West LTM has dropped in time for Red Dead Redemption 2, and a celebration featuring Wreck-It Ralph may also be in the pipeline.
Fortnite is out now for Android, iOS, Nintendo Switch, Mac, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
