Polar Peak is breaking in Fortnite Battle Royale, sparking Dragon rumors

Fortnite Battle Royale might well have one whole quarter of its map dedicated to a snow biome, but it looks increasingly likely that it could all come to an end in Season 9 as Polar Peak has started to break. 

Epic Games decided to introduced a number of major changes to the gameplay of the popular battle royale title at the beginning of Season 7, by removing points of interest such as Flush Factory and Greasy Grove to make way for all new snow biome. 

However, their replacements – Polar Peak, Happy Hamlet and Frosty Flights – have since started to feel outdated, particularly the latter as X-4 Stormwing planes are no longer available as a form of transport. A runway without planes is no runway at all.

Following the v9.10 update being released, it doesn’t take good eyesight to see that Polar Peak now has a huge crack down the middle of the iceberg. With the surface looking particularly unstable, plus the rumbling sounds that players are hearing near the location, it looks set to fall sometime in the near future. 

Interestingly, footage captured by players also seems to suggest that there could be something trapped inside the ice that’s waiting to break free, as seen below. 

Dragons coming soon to Fortnite Season 9?

With so many dragon rumors circulating since Season 7 began, with eggs spotted nearby, there’s no doubt that those who still believe one will emerge from the ice will be excited by the possibility of it happening in Season 9. Though, it is a long shot. 

Whether or not the ice falling from the location would result in the entire snow biome being removed remains to be seen, but with rumors of Greasy Grove returning in a NEO style – much like the newly revamped Tilted Towers and Mega Mall locations – there’s a good chance that it could spell the end for the snow.

Starting with Chapter 2 Season 5, Fortnite will have a brand new subscription service titled Fortnite Crew, which aims to bring a slew of different features that players love, wrapped up into one nice little package. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Season 4 of Fortnite is rapidly coming to an end. The Marvel-themed season has been around for a few months now and in December it will be replaced by Season 5. While we don’t know the full extent of the new season, we do know that it’s set to introduce a brand new service called Fortnite Crew.

This subscription-based model, which is a first for Fortnite, is set to introduce a brand new way to get the battle pass each season, while at the same time earning some free goodies to sink your teeth into. But how does it work, how much does it cost, and what does it include? Here’s the breakdown.

Fortnite Crew contents

The most attractive inclusion in this new subscription service is that of the battle pass. Each month, you’ll get the premium version of the battle pass at no extra cost to you, so long as you’re subscribed to Fortnite Crew.

Beyond that, however, you’ll also receive a number of different items beyond the premium battle pass. You’ll also receive 1000 v-bucks and an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, which in-and-of-itself includes a skin and a “matching accessory”.

Fortnite Crew cost

According to Epic, the Fortnite Crew subscription service will cost players $11.99 a month. This price makes the service an objectively good deal, as a normal battle pass costs 950 V-bucks, which costs around $8.

So for a few extra bucks from the standard price of a battle pass, you’re getting 1000 extra V-bucks, an exclusive skin pack, and the battle pass itself.

How to subscribe to Fortnite Crew

Epic Games
Players will be able to purchase the Fortnite Crew subscription from the Item Shop when it launches in December.

Subscribing to Fortnite Crew is, apparently, quick and easy. All you have to do is click the icons found in the Fortnite Item Shop or on the battle pass screen, meaning it doesn’t seem like players will have to jump through a bunch of hoops in order to get access to the service.

In addition, Epic Games also confirmed that fans will be able to cancel their subscription at any time. Presumably, fans will be able to keep all of the items they unlocked through the service up until that point, considering they would have already paid for that month.
