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.


Ali-A uncovers teasers for future Fortnite skins: Matrix, Witcher, Ant-Man & more

YouTuber and longtime Fortnite superfan Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has discovered big clues for more crossover skins that could be coming soon to the game.

Season 5 of Fortnite kicked off with a bang as The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda arrived on The Island. Since then, we’ve seen God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and even Predator get their own skins.

So who’s coming next? Well, Ali-A has some ideas based on a hint list that was sent to him by Fortnite creators Epic Games themselves, and it seems as though more epic movie crossovers are on their way.

What new skins are coming in Fortnite Season 5?

In a new video celebrating the arrival of Terminator, Ali-A also revisited a list of items that he’d been sent by Epic Games, with each item acting as a teaser for a ‘hunter’ that would be coming to the game at some point during Season 5.

It appears that many hints on the list have already been discovered: The cup is The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda; the sunglasses are Terminator; the face paint is Kratos; the mud mask is Predator; and the syrup is Mancake, for example.

As for the remaining items on the list, there are some very interesting theories about who they could relate to, and which iconic characters could be coming to The Island next.

Ali-A explains that the Ant-Farm item is most likely a hint at Ant-Man finally joining the game, as he was given his own point of interest during Season 4’s Marvel extravaganza but was never added as a character.

The red and blue jellybeans could be a hint towards characters from The Matrix. This will likely be either Neo or Trinity, as they’re both set to return in the upcoming sequel Matrix 4 that’s due out later in 2021.

Tokens also appear as an item on the list, and Ali-A believes this is a hint towards The Witcher protagonist Geralt, especially as the Netflix adaptation of the game features a song called Toss A Coin To Your Witcher.

A crossover with The Witcher could be coming to Fortnite.

A baseball bat could be a hint towards Scout from Team Fortress 2, or it could have pointed to The Walking Dead crossover that already happened. Similarly, space bananas could be a hint towards Samus Aran from Metroid, or it could have just been about Master Chief.

Elsewhere, the golden back scratcher is likely going to represent the long-rumored Female Midas skin, as it links up with the ‘Midas Touch’ myth. As for the hand wraps, even Ali-A is unsure what they could hint towards, but it could be a boxer of some sort.

We’ll have to wait and see whether any of these crossover skin predictions come true before Season 5 of Fortnite comes to an end on March 15, 2021.
