The main focal point of the Fortnite map in Season 7 has been the addition of ‘Polar Peak’, which has harvested a number of secrets – and it looks like it is beginning to melt away.

Sitting atop the peak is a castle, supposedly the home of the Ice King – who just covered the entire map in snow – as well as the controversial ‘Infinity Blade’ (now removed after backlash about balance).

Leakers also discovered that large dragon eggs were hibernating under the castle, which were eventually revealed, and now the dungeons are beginning to be exposed as the ice gradually melts.

Leakers also found that there is someone/something trapped in dungeon – most likely the mysterious Snowfall skin, which is unlocked by finding secret hidden banners each week.

If the Snowfall skin is indeed trapped in the dungeon as data miners believe, then it looks like the melting ice will soon reveal it.

YouTuber FortTroy has recorded the level of ice inside the castle over January 18 – 22, and the rate at which the it is melting is alarming.

Data miner @s1l0x has given the best glimpse at what is imprisoned inside, which certainly appears to be a character skin of some kind.

“That mesh references a prisoner skin which I am 99% sure will be the snowfall skin. The prisoner had a T1 File. Tier 1?”


So, players will want to keep an eye on the progress of the melting ice, but of course we will have more updates when it finally unveils who or what is trapped inside.


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
