The Ice Storm Event was a Battle Royale event introduced four days day after the 7.20 Patch Update on January 19 at 2:00pm EST (due to the sphere exploding and covered the map in snow) with the live Ice Storm event. The event lasted for 10 days (January 19th-29th).
However the actual live event took place on January 19 2019 at 2:00pm EST. It started with the sphere at Polar Peak exploding and revealing the Ice King and a giant almost holographic version of him that appeared to be following very movement that he did. He then took the magic that he had been holding in his hand the whole time and started swirling it and then released it on the map, sending a giant wave of snow over it, covering it in snow.

During the 10 day long event, Solo and Duos were replaced with new Ice Storm Solo and Duo LTMs as well as an additional Ice Storm variant of Squads too. This gamemode is almost exactly like that of Fortnitemares, with the exception of a completely snow-covered map, Cube Monsters renamed to Ice Legion, Ice Shards replacing Cube Fragments as Ice Legion spawners, and new icy textures for all the Ice Legion.
