The Ice King has arrived.
Another in-game event went live in Fortnite this morning, covering the entire map in snow and kicking off the Ice Storm event.
Earlier this week, a mysterious ice sphere appeared above Polar Peak. A silhouette of the Ice King, the final reward of Season 7’s Battle Pass, was visible inside. Television sets across the map began broadcasting a forecast warning with a countdown to today’s event.
The event started with ice sphere exploding, fully revealing the Ice King and clearing out any storm effects in the sky. A giant icy figure appeared over the ocean and sent forth a frosty wind across the map. Once the fog settled, the entire map was covered in snow.
Bolts of lightning started to strike randomly across the map, leaving giant ice shards that summon Ice Legion monsters. Sound familiar? Last season’s Fortnitemare’s event followed a similar premise where Cube Fragments released Cube Monsters that could be killed for loot.
To go along with the Ice Storm event, Epic released a new set of Ice Storm Challenges. Check our Week 7 Challenges page for every expedition outpost and our Week 6 Challenges page for a list of all chilly gnomes.
