Last week, Fortnite’s update v7.20 went live, and alongside all of the normal fare like the new scoped revolver weapon and the reintroduction of the glider redeploy, the patch also added a floating frost orb over the Polar Peaks, its purpose unknown. This past weekend, however, its purpose was revealed as it burst open to unveil the Ice King, who promptly covered the entire map in frost, and in doing so, introduced new AI enemies for players to contend with as well as a new set of in-game challenges for players to complete.
After the Ice King’s emergence, the map is now being invaded by his minions, known as the Ice Legion, and these new foes will play a key part in the new set of Ice Storm challenges. Right now, all of the challenges require taking down members of the Ice Legion, often in specific ways, such as using explosive damage or particular weapon types. Players who complete six of these Ice Storm challenges will reward players with a unique weapon wrap, and players who complete all of the challenges — more of which will be unveiled in the coming days — will get the snazzy Winter’s Thorn Glider. So bundle up, Fortnite players, and get out there to show the Ice King who’s boss.
