​'Fortnite' Welcomes New Ice Storm Event And Metric Tons Of Snow

​'Fortnite' Welcomes New Ice Storm Event And Metric Tons Of Snow

Similar to Omega's rocket take off, and Kevin the Cube's dramatic exit, battle royale island welcomed its latest major event over the weekend, with the arrival of Ice Storm in Fortnite.

Ice Storm was initially teased last week, with the appearance of a gigantic ice sphere above Polar Peak, alongside event countdowns on TV sets scattered across the game's map.

But the event began with the explosion of said sphere, which previously featured a silhouette of the cool-looking Ice King. After it blew up, the Game of Thrones-y character proceeded to make his expected appearance.

The Ice King (who players can unlock as Season 7's tier 100 Battle Pass skin), then conjured a huge, frosty version of himself. The demon-like figure copied his movements, brushed the fog away, and cast a thick layer of snow across the whole map.

Lightning also struck at various points around the island, and Ice Legion Monsters - AKA the icy new Cube Monsters - spawned from the shards left behind.

If you can cast your minds back to Fortnitemares, Epic's spooky Halloween event, Cube Monsters introduced the game's first PvE element: they attempt to kill you, but they'll drop pretty rare loot if you get them first.

A number of strange eggs have also been found in Polar Peak's dungeon, as well as a bunker beneath where Happy Hamlet iceberg used to be [via Engadget]. There's multiple new ice-themed challenges to get stuck into, too.
