Fortnite: New ‘Frozen Orb’ above Polar Peeks hints at Ice Storm Event

Update: Click here for all information regarding the Ice Storm Live In-Game Event! The live event begins in game at 2pm EST Today, Saturday Jan. 19th.

Check out the new Frozen Orb found above Polar Peaks in Fortnite Battle Royale.  What exactly is this new Frozen Orb, and what is it doing here?

Well, similar to ‘The Cube’ named Kevin, this Frozen Orb will most likely play a roll in the upcoming Ice Storm Challenges and the Ice Storm Event.   Data mining has suggested that we will the Ice King over-take the Fortnite map with a giant ice storm.When you visit the orb, your screen will gradually becoming icey and white as your get closer.  Eventually your entire screen turns white and you can’t see.

This wasn’t the only addition in this patch.  There is also now an Iceberg with a health bar which players can damage.  Players believe something will emerge from the Iceberg after players destroy it, or after it destroys itself by slowly ticking down its own health.

Again, this is most likely going to play a part in the upcoming Ice Storm Event and Ice Storm Challenges!
