Fresh leaks have surfaced online that confirms we’ll be seeing snow on parts of the Fortnite battle royale map.
Epic Games have consistently added elements of each part of 2018, from Easter to Halloween, which means a special effort around Christmas won’t come as a surprise to anyone who’s familiar with the title.
Fortnite leakers FNBRLeaks posted screenshots on November 21 showing several game files containing information on a snowy terrain on parts of the map, similar to Fortnite’s desert area, Paradise Palms.
The leaked information includes different game sounds for sprinting, walking etc. The two screenshots below show the character footsteps, and the second contains other snow sound files.
The data miners also exported sound files and posted the audio to the FNBRLeaks Twitter page.
The unmistakable noise of crunching snow has been confirmed as a different sound to the footsteps heard at Viking Village, which contains areas of snow.
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

As mentioned above, there is an expectation on Epic to implement snow and Christmas themes into the popular game, which makes this a question of not if, but when we’ll see things change.
