Fortnite's Ice is Slowly Melting

Fortnite's Ice is Slowly Melting

Beginning of the end?

The icy locations of Fortnite Battle Royale aren’t exactly new to the game, having arrived back at the beginning of Season 7. However, it looks like one massive ice block in the game is slowly melting.

Just below, you can see the location of the ice block in question, on the Battle Royale map. If you land on the island, which is right near Happy Hamlet, and well within the icy biome that arrived with the beginning of Fortnite Season 7, you can see that the huge ice block in the middle of the island is slowly melting.

When we visited the ice block just now, right around 6 a.m. PT, it had roughly 4.7 billion health points left. But, it’s degrading quickly, with hundreds of health points being depleted off the ice block every second.

So, what could all this mean for Fortnite Battle Royale. Well, we’re coming up on week 7 of Season 7, and all seasonal events in Fortnite Battle Royale always run for a maximum of 10 weeks. With just about four weeks left to go before a new season is ushered in, could this be the beginning of the end for the snowy climate in Fortnite Battle Royale?

He's written for The Guardian, Paste Magazine, and Kotaku, and he likes waking up when the sun rises and roaming the nearby woods with the bears and the wolves.
