A 'Game of Thrones' Event Could Be Coming to 'Fortnite'

It's a new year, which means Epic Games is gearing up for a lot of "new" weirdness for their ever-popular online game Fortnite. With the snow-capped hills and the fun 14 Days of Fortnite challenge officially wrapped, the dataminers out there are having a field day with trying to find out what secrets the game's files are hiding. In this case, it looks like something to do with dragons is on the way - which is perfect with the final season of Game of Thrones coming soon.

The initial find began in the latter half of December of 2018 when fans found that there's a mysterious dragon egg hiding under the Polar Peak castle:

Then, other gamers decided to take on the challenge and try to find these eggs themselves as evident in the video at the top of the article. The above YouTuber was able to glitch his way into the the castle's depths where he found the group of dragon eggs nestled in the snow near what appears to be jail cells. From the looks of it, these eggs are ready to hatch ...

Some are speculating that this will have something to do with the now-vaulted Infinity Blade. Since Epic Games pulled the mobile game from the store, it looks like they might be looking to recreate some of that fantasy within their other huge hit: Fortnite.
