Update: The live event has now taken place – you can watch the full event if you missed it, plus a full rundown of all the changes.

Another live event has taken place in Fortnite on January 19, with the mysterious sphere of ice revealing its true purpose, with the Ice King trapped inside.

The sphere of ice appeared following the V7.20 update for Fortnite, and players later noticed that inside the sphere was the ‘Ice King’ character himself.

Markings of a clock later appeared around the sphere, indicating a countdown to yet another live event, like the previous ‘Fortnitemares’ event and the rocket launch.

Fortnite fans were left to speculate on what exactly will happen, but the markings do at least tell us exactly what time the event would take place.

The Ice King was revealed to players, coming out as a wind-like giant, summoning a massive snow storm across the map.

It appeared the Ice King used the power of Kevin the Cube to summon the storm, as he was seen spinning a cube fragment before the event started.

A video from @FNBRHQ shows the Ice King spinning what appears to be a cube fragment inside the ice sphere.

strange light fog had also been noticed on the Fortnite map, and this also affected the entire map following the event.

Playground mode and all LTM modes were disabled temporarily in Fortnite, so everyone would avoid missing the event by being in the wrong playlist.

The National Football League and Epic Games have announced a continuation in their partnership, which is allowing for a slew of new NFL-themed skins in the mega-popular battle royale game Fortnite within the next few days. 

NFL skins in Fortnite are nothing new. Back in 2018, a slew of skins based on NFL football teams made their way into the game, much to the excitement of fans of the sport.

Unfortunately, while the skins returned to the Item Shop in early 2020 due to the Super Bowl, they never really gained notoriety, with the only exception being when Epic gave players a free refund for the skins after the Washington Football Team’s name and logo was changed a few months back.

Despite this, it seems like more NFL skins are on the way.

The new NFL skins will feature a redesigned look compared to their old versions.

The two mega companies have recently announced that they will be “extending” their partnership to allow for more NFL skins in Fortnite. According to a joint press release from both companies, the new skins will be completely redesigned from their previous looks and will have a “more athletic” and “aerodynamic look and feel”.

This new selection of skins will be called the Gridiron Gang Outfits and will represent all 32 NFL teams in both the AFC and NFC.

In addition to the newly redesigned skins, fans will also have a chance to get their hands on a brand new Back Bling for their NFL skins, named Logo-a-go-go. While the name’s a bit of a tongue-twister, these new items are basically just the logo for the team you want to represent stuck onto the back of your character.

Release Date and Time

According to the company, the skins and back bling will be added to the Fortnite Item Shop in just a few days, on November 25. Like every other item added to the in-game store, it should appear when the store gets updated that day.

Currently, the big unknown is how long the items will be in the shop for. Surely, they’ll only be available for a limited time, however, the exact time frame is unclear. It could be in their for as short as a day or maybe a bit longer.

Chances are though that Epic will give fans a few days to get their hands on it before pulling it from the store. Regardless, NFL fans should be ready to grab these items if they want it because with Fortnite, you never know when they’ll come back.
