Fortnite Ice Storm Event Begins: Ice Zombies, Ice King And More
The popular Battle Royale game, Fortnite, has always given its players surprises. This time, it was a huge round orb that was hanging on top of the map with patch v7.20 at the beginning of the week. Well, that orb burst open recently and it seems like new challenges have come up. The orb which was flying over the Polar Peaks, burst recently and a snow storm engulfed the map for a brief period.
The challenges include 6 Ice Storm Challenges which unlock a Wrap reward. One can also destroy Ice Fiends to gain 500 XP and deal a certain amount of damage with Explosive Weapons to the Ice Legion for 500 XP.
Ice Fiends are zombie like creatures that belong to the Ice Legion. These creatures spawn from glowing blue stones that are now strewn all over the map. The map itself has been covered in snow after the snow storm. Over the next few days, Epic games will be rolling out new challenges for players to complete.
With the snow storm, a few other things have changed as well. The prison cells beneath Polar Peak’s castle has been strewn with strange eggs. The iceberg near Happy hamlet has also been destroyed and strange bunkers are found in that place.

If a player completes all 13 challenges, there is a Winter’s Thorn Glider as a reward. A new gun- the Scoped Revolver was also added after the Ice Storm event. PUBG, Fortnite’s competitor in Battle Royale games, has also recently added a new snow map called Vikendi. The map is compact compared to Erangel and the play time is also lesser. There are rumours that the snow map will soon get a night mode as well. Just like Fortnite, PUBG will also see some zombies raiding it’s maps soon. A new Zombies mode is said to be in the works and will be added to the game by the end of January 2019.
