An enormous ice orb appeared in Fortnite early last week, hovering over the Polar Peaks, and lots of speculated that it was a part of the reside events leading as much as Season 8. They had been appropriate.
On Friday afternoon final week, the ice orb became a sizable clock, and quickly exploded, allowing the Ice King to cover the entire map with snow, turning Fortnite’s green playground into a Winter Wonderland. Ok, a Winter Wonderland with ice zombies.
Not content with transforming the whole map, the Ice King has also been busy making a brand new form of zombie known as “Ice Fiends”. These icy imbeciles may be discovered gathered in different locations about the map, and defeating them will count towards the Ice Storm Challenge, which when completed will reward you with a Winter-themed glider and a cosmetic item.
The ice orb shenanigans are reminiscent of Kevin, the mysterious cube who spent a couple of weeks inside the Fortnite’s skies, just before pulling the players into a rift and transforming part of the map.
A new item known as Sneaky Snowman was obviously teased with an in-game message over the weekend too – so we expect that to hit the game soon.
For those who have not had a possibility to jump into Fortnite this weekend, it looks like it really is worth attempting as a result of the changes in the map. Once you are here, why not check out all we know about Season 8 so far. You can also buy Fortnite Items on line to play the game now!
