The map changes are some of the biggest we've seen since the beginning of Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 7 will introduce new areas for players to battle, with zip lines coming in handy to get from high terrain to the ground quickly and safely.

While many video game players have come to know Epic Games thanks to the massive rise in popularity of Fortnite, Epic Games has been a major developer in the gaming industry for years with one of their most popular titles being the mobile fighting game of Infinity Blade.

The world in Fortnite Season 7 is now covered in snow and there are even planes in the skies.

Players will find a much chillier atmosphere in game as Tilted Towers and all of the new surrounding environs have been iced over, complete with handy ziplines to get players from peak to peak in a jiffy. Meanwhile, the submarine can be found in the new Iceberg biome on top of a mountain shown in our screenshot.

Fortnite has never looked like this before. One particularly interesting feature this time around is the addition of Wraps, which can be used to decorate your weapons and vehicles once earned.

As far as who decides which creations are good enough to appear at The Block, Mustard said that "we're going to all pick it together", which is rather vague, but Epic have already recommended players to post their creations on social media and use #FortniteBlockParty.

The game was so much different back then.

Fortnite Season 7 is upon us and the giant update patch has added a new snowy section of the map, along with new usable planes and weapon skins.
