Can't get enough Fortnite? It looks like there's news coming about the latest game season, Season 7, very soon – this week, at The Game Awards, in fact.
The Game Awards creator and host Geoff Keighley took to Twitter to announce a Fortnite world premiere presented by Epic Games' Donald Mustard at 9 PM ET during the show, noting that players should keep their games close and adding the hashtag #WorldsWillChange.

Meanwhile, the Fortnite Twitter account announced that there were officially three days left until Season 7 rolled around, teasing an icy chill that's about to spread through the game.

Epic Games' Nick Chester and Donald Mustard both commented on the news via Twitter (quoting a secondary source rather than the official The Game Awards tweet for some reason), further confirming that, yes, we're getting Season 7 news.

The "Me too!" from Donald was a laugh from the Fortnite staff, as obviously they're all going to be attending.
