The Fortnite Battle Royale map has been covered entirely in snow and a thick fog, following the Ice King summoning a massive ice storm – plus ice zombies have made an appearance.
The in-game event went live on schedule on January 19 at 2PM EST, as millions of Fortnite fans watched on.
The event saw the Ice King break free of the ‘ice sphere’, and whip up a massive snow storm, which instantly covered the entire map in a thick layer of snow.

As players dropped down into the new snowy map for the first time, they also noticed a the emergence of some new fiends.
Fans predicted this would happen after the Cube Fiend crossbow was spotted again in vending machines.
