The snow and ice at Fortnite’s Polar Peak is continuing to melt, and it appears that the thaw will reveal a prisoner who has been held captive at the castle.

Polar Peak was added to Fortnite at the beginning of Season 7, and is home to the mysterious Ice King who has appeared in various loading screens throughout the season.

On Saturday, January 19, The Ice King broke free of the strange orb he was hiding inside and unleashed a frosty spell on the island that saw the entire map covered in snow.

Now, it appears that The Ice King has been keeping a prisoner trapped underneath his castle on Polar Peak, with the large block of ice that had been containing the captive slowly melting away.

Now, the block is almost entirely gone and fans of the popular battle royale title have been able to catch a glimpse of the figure that has been chained up underneath the castle.

At time of writing, only the arm of the unknown figure is visible, which appears to be made of rock and may be covered in runes which seem to be visible on the hand.

An arm can be seen protruding from the ice at Polar Peak.

While it’s currently unknown who this strange figure is, some Fortnite fans believe that the arm belongs to a skin which will become the Snowfall skin, which will be awarded to players who have completed the game’s Snowfall challenges throughout Season 7.

With the ice continuing to melt at Polar Peak, it’s unlikely that we will have wait long before the figure is revealed, possibly in the next Fortnite update, which is slated for Tuesday, January 29.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.

Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.

To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
