The Fortnite Ice Storm Events are Just Plain Horrible

We know all too well by now not to start doubting Epic Games, but after seeing how the Ice Storm challenges for Fortnite: Battle Royale have turned out so far, it’s probably time to start wondering if the developers have run out of creative juice. Kudos to Epic Games, though, the Ice Storm event had a good start. There was a lot of hype surrounding it, and the moment it arrived justified all the hype. We saw a giant Ice King hologram coat the entirety of the in-game map in snow, ice, and fog, and in real-time at that! Not many developers can claim to have done something similar. But, since then, what have we seen? Nothing. Or at least, nothing worth taking about.

Once all of the hype fizzled out and we’re left with the map as it is, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to tell that Epic Games basically just made it snow everywhere and added fog to lower the map visibility. Even worse, the Ice Legion, which was supposed to be the most interesting part of the event, are essentially just snow versions of the Fortnitemares that released in October, which effectively also makes them just reskinned versions of the zombies from Save the World.

The worst part is that the challenges during the event have all been nothing but a chore. It’s just shooting at Ice Monsters in between games. It’s just like Epic Games rehashed Fortnitemares and slapped a snow theme to it. What’s up with that?

Of course, Epic Games could rectify all of this by ending the event on a big note. Already, there are rumors surfacing about how we’re going to see a giant boss battle where everyone in a single game gets involved and has to work together to shoot it down. That’d be nice, if it did happen. But, at this point, it doesn’t really change the truth regarding majority of the event itself – a proof that Epic Games is starting to sit on their laurels and reskinning previous events. You know how boring an event is when the most interesting bit is checking the Polar Peak dungeon every 12 hours to wait for the melting ice to reveal what’s most likely going to be a Snowfall in-game skin.

Hopefully, Epic Games doesn’t pull off something like this again. They can, but they shouldn’t. There’s far more interesting stuff that they could do in terms of adding more PvE content for Fortnite: Battle Royale and just reskinning previous events and calling it a day just won’t cut it. But, maybe, just maybe, I’m an entitled player who’s just been spoiled by what Epic Games has done so far. Because, really, props to them.

At nearly every turn, Epic Games had one-upped themselves with every decision they’ve made for the game, and it’s probably because of this that I felt like it was worth noting just how disappointing the current event was. Here’s to hoping that this weird week (or event) doesn’t happen again.
