Earlier this week , a mysterious ice sphere appeared above Polar Peak.
A silhouette of the Ice King, the final reward of Season 7's Battle Pass , was visible inside.
Television sets across the map began broadcasting a forecast warning with a countdown to today's event.
A giant icy figure appeared over the ocean and sent forth a frosty wind across the map.
Once the fog settled, the entire map was covered in snow.
Michael Koczwara is IGN's Weekend Web Producer who would like to see weapons removed in the next event.
