Fortnite Ice Storm Event Begins After Mysterious Orb Has Opened

about X hours ago from

Shortly after the release of Fortnite's 7.20 update earlier this week, players noticed that a mysterious icy sphere had appeared in the game above Polar Peak, leading to speculation that it would somehow tie into the impending Season 8. As it would turn out, the sphere actually housed the Ice King, who has now emerged and blanketed the entire island with an ice storm, kicking off a new event.

During an in-game sequence that unfolded on Saturday, the mysterious sphere burst open, revealing the Ice King, who conjured up a blizzard that rolled over the island. Along with the storm arrived Ice Fiends, zombie-like monsters reminiscent of those that appeared during the Fortnitemares event back in October. You can watch a replay of the entire event below.

Fortnite Ice Storm Challenges Day 1: Destroy Ice Fiends, Damage Ice Legion

about X hours ago from

Epic Games has kicked off a new event in Fortnite, initiating a world event that, along with changing the island where all the action takes places, introduces a new batch of challenges to complete. If you've been keeping a close eye on what's been happening in Fortnite you'll know that a mysterious orb appeared recently above Polar Peak. That orb has now opened, and from within it the Ice King has emerged.

His arrival has also buffeted the island with an Ice Storm, which has frozen it over. An icy mist has reduced visibility and, wouldn't you know it, strange zombie-like creatures called Ice Fiends have appeared. This is the second event of this type, the previous being Fortnitemares. New changes and enemies to take on means there's ample opportunity to throw in some fresh challenges for players, and that's exactly what Epic has done.

Over the next five days, new challenges will unlock in Fortnite, each one offering 500 experience points for completion. Once six Ice Storm challenges are completed, players will received a cool black and ice blue wrap. For those that manage to complete all 13 challenges, there's a Winter's Thorn Glider as a reward. Check out the challenges available on day one below.

Resident Evil 2 Remake: All The Story You Need To Know Before Playing

A Long History Of Evil

Resident Evil's story seems simple enough at first blush: Evil corporation develops virus that turns people into monsters; virus escapes. But years of reworks, prequels, and retcons have changed the details pretty significantly. Yes, much of Resident Evil is still about an evil corporation and its zombie virus, but it's also littered with twisted characters, horrifying creatures, and complex conspiracies.

With the release of the Resident Evil 2 remake imminent, there's a lot of story to revisit--both from the remake of Resident Evil and from Resident Evil Zero, the GameCube prequel that added a whole lot of Umbrella-centric details to the lore. We fully expect the new Resident Evil 2 to make some changes that bring the original story more in line with all the material that has come after it, as well, and it might even provide some new details and insights on the characters and Umbrella's evil plans.

Here's everything that happened leading up to the Resident Evil 2 remake, and everything you need to know to navigate the halls of its maze-like story.
