After what can only be described as a rollercoaster of a season, we are drawing to the final days. With only 3 days officially left of season 6, our attention has been shifted onto the impending Fortnite season 7 start date. In what has seemed like a drawn out 2 month period, we have said goodbye to the much beloved ‘Kevin’.
The climatic event which saw the ominous cube enter the depths of Leaky Lake captivated us with an impressive cinematic. But without any context or further supporting story/lore, the community have been left anticipating Season 7 to begin in Fortnite. For many, this second half of season 6 has been lackluster, to say the least.
So we are expecting big things to finish the year off with a bang.
When is the Fortnite Season 7 Start Date?
Typically speaking, there is a ‘cooldown’ between each season, which allows players to enjoy the game without focusing on objectives or challenges. But this period of time does not typically last for more than a few days. With currently only 3 days remaining on season 6 we can estimate that the Fortnite Season 7 start date will be from anytime as early as next weekend (8th December 2018) or the start of the second week of December. Of course, the season 7 start date could even be as early as the 6th December 2018 if it starts the day after Season 6 finishes, but at the time of writing, this is all speculation.
Events within the map also suggest that the Fortnite Season 7 start date is imminently upon us, namely the approaching snowstorm, seen off the southwest coast of the map.
Also, since Kevin (The Cube) opened another dimension in Leaky Lake, there have been minimal events or notable occurrences across the map. 3 days officially remain of season 6, so perhaps another event is yet to come which will provide some sort of countdown or timer for the Season 7 start date.
What is in Fortnite Season 7?
The specifics are not known but given that the season 7 battle pass will fall over Christmas, the tiers will most likely be Christmas/festive themed. Within the battle pass, there will likely be 100 tiers as we have become accustomed and contain varying rarities of skins, gliders, dances/emotes and picks. As more information is revealed we shall be sure to let you know.
