Which theme will Season 7 have? It is certain that winter and probably Christmas are the theme of Season 7. A clear indication of this is the iceberg that is currently approaching the map. In addition, it has recently started to snow.

How will the map change? The snow is likely to cover parts of the map with ice and snow, but possibly only on the western half of the map, as the desert in the southeast could continue to be a desert and retain its unique character.

There will certainly be several new places and other places will be changed. It is conceivable that rivers and lakes and possibly even the Loot Lake freeze.

What gameplay changes will there be? When snow and ice come, there may be special gameplay innovations.

Conceivable are:

  • Footsteps in the snow, with which you can find your opponents, so similar to the competitive title Darwin Project .
  • Slippery ice surfaces
  • Snowball fight as a toy
  • Teleporters as in the bunker at Wailing Woods could also appear in larger numbers in the game and allow even faster relocations
