Fortnite season 7: HUGE Battle Royale leak – theme and new map reveal?
And speculation is mounting among Battle Royale fans that Epic Games may have revealed one of these Fortnite season 7 skins.
Earlier this week the Fortnite week 10 loading screen was leaked following the release of Fortnite update 6.31.
The last loading screen for Fortnite season 6 shows a party scene with the DJ llama at the decks.
But in the crowds eagle-eyed Fortnite fans spotted one long-lost skin.

The onesie skin, which was previously leaked, can be seen in the Fortnite week 10 loading screen.
This skin was thought to be dropping during Fortnite season 6 but last month the in-game files for it were suddenly removed.
It led fans to thinking that the Fortnite onesie skin could have been consigned to the garbage pile.
But its reemergence in the Fortnite week 10 loading screen has led to speculation among fans that it could be being teased for a season 7 launch.

One fan tweeted: “Onesie actually might be coming to Fortnite in the coming season 7”.
Another posted: “The Onesie skin may be a Season 7 Battle Pass skin!”
One added: “If you put K Pop skin and onesie skin in season 7 Battle Pass everyone will freak out and be happy and love you guys more”.
The news comes after leaks have given more weight to the rumours that Fortnite season 7 will have a Christmas theme.

It’s widely expected that Fortnite season 7 will see the Battle Royale map turned into a winter wonderland.
And new, leaked files have given more credence to this Fortnite season 7 theory.
Prominent dataminer Fortnite Battle Royale Leaks has discovered new assets which suggest the Fortnite map in season 7 will be covered in snow.
In the Fortnite 6.31 update the @FNBRLeaks Twitter account has discovered files which suggest an icy, wintery event is coming to Fortnite.

They tweeted: “This “Snow Storm” is an Ice Storm, and I have an odd feeling this has to do with next update (v7.0 / S7) There’s a “Distant” file which seems to be the current state of the Ice Storm, then there’s a “Surround” file, which what seems to be the Ice Storm surrounding the island”.
The news comes after last week the FNBRLeaks Twitter also discovered more files that suggested Fortnite season 7 will have a snowy theme.
The Fortnite leaker discovered in-game sound files for footsteps in the snow.
They tweeted: “Snow will most likely come into the game according to Athena (Battle Royale) Footstep Sound Files.
“In the first attached picture shows Character Footstep sounds, After reading the sound asset, it’ll call other snow sound files, which are highlighted”.
