Fortnite Battle Royale players could soon find themselves right in the middle of a Godzilla: King of the Monsters crossover in-game, with some interesting pieces of evidence linking it to the upcoming 'Cattus' event - including a mysterious creature swimming around the map.
Epic Games has not shied away from strange happenings in the past and now their overarching Polar Peak easter egg mystery looks finally set to come to an end. The event, which has been labeled as the Cattus event, is seemingly set to take place under the polar biome.
Yet, if some new fan theories turn out to be correct, there might be more than just a one-off in-game event getting underway, as some players believe that a crossover with Godzilla: King of the Monsters could be in the works. Here's what we know so far.
Back on May 22, players found that a part of the Polar Peak iceberg has begun decaying and is set to play a role in an upcoming event.
Since then, leaked information from the Fortnite Battle Royale game files, following the map changes made in the v9.20 update, seem to foreshadow the total demise of one of the map's largest locations. Some of the iceberg has already fallen, but what's left might not last much longer.
First of all, it was revealed that something was underneath Polar Peak and it looks now as if the ice berg and more is going to fall in the near future.

That speculation also ties into the Godzilla crossover idea as a monster from the movie - King Ghidorah - is seen trapped in ice, waiting to wake up and wreak havoc on the world.
HappyPower took the theories further with a leaked game file, showing an eye that also looks pretty similar to Ghidorah. It has since appeared at Polar Peak.
To some fans, it may seem a little far fetched considering the movie has already linked-up with PUBG for some promotion, but the evidence does seem to mount up.
It remains to be seen if the theories are indeed correct and Epic do actually reveal an official in-game event related to Godzilla, but there's been an interesting development at Polar Peak that might well give us an indication of what those eggs were doing there after all.
What looks like a huge eye appeared at the bottom of the huge mountain of ice, which was our first real indication that a monster was looming beneath. Then, following the v9.20 patch, players have noticed not just footprints in the game files, but some have appeared on the map as well. It's on the move.
On May 25, YouTuber HappyPower also noted some other hints that have already appeared in-game, which could be linked to the new movie. Yet, the first real link stemmed all the way back to the start of the new season.
Even though the volcano eruption in Fortnite Battle Royale served its purpose, allowing for Tilted Towers and Retail Row to be reimagined as Neo Tilted and Mega Mall, it can link to the Godzilla. In the first trailer for the new movie, one of the monsters - Rodan - is seen above an erupting volcano, looking similar to the volcano eruption from the Season 9 trailer.
While it may not seem like much, one of the ‘dragon’ eggs that had been uncovered under Polar Peak back in Season 7 had popped up under the volcano in season eight - giving some sort of credence to the theory. Yet, the speculation doesn’t end just there.

In a further follow-up tweet, the YouTuber uploaded a short clip that compared a leak sound file from an upcoming in-game event that sounded eerily similar to Rodan’s role in the movies trailer.
Fortnite Battle Royale players have been trying to work out whether or not the Cattus event will result in the emergence of Godzilla, a dragon, or any other monsters... and a spanner has been thrown in the works by Epic Games.
As of yet, no one is exactly sure as to what Epic has planned with the upcoming Cattus event.
However, stay tuned to Dexerto for the latest breaking news and updates about Fortnite Battle Royale as the picture is starting to become a bit more clear with every passing update and datamine.
