As Chapter 3 of Fortnite comes to an end, the next part of the epic saga is all set to unleash brand-new spectacles on the over-the-top world of Fortnite. In this new chapter, brand new characters such as Geralt of Rivia, Hulk, and more are about to join the battles, including the King of YouTube, MrBeast himself.

Fortnite has a huge influence on contemporary pop culture. This massive online FPS game features many well-known celebrities, anime characters, and memes, but this time it is taking the crazy to a whole new level by adding the most subscribed influencer on YouTube as a playable character in the game.

But unfortunately, when Fortnite dropped the announcement of their latest addition to the game, MrBeast was way out of reach. Not just Fortnite, he was almost out of the reach of everybody else. During the Chapter 4 event of Fortnite, Jimmy Donaldson aka MrBeast was busy surviving in the harsh winters of Antarctica.

Jimmy is known for his larger-than-life videos. He has taken online content creation to a brand new level. In his videos, he has done some wacky stunts like building an entire chocolate factory to promote his chocolate bar, giving an island to one of his subscribers, prizing a brand new private jet to his fellow YouTuber, and more.

With each video, Jimmy gets wilder and wilder. That is why, for one of his upcoming videos, Jimmy went to the southernmost continent of the planet, Antarctica. The harsh conditions of the south pole are considered impossible even for many experienced adventurers and researchers, but that does not stop Jimmy in his quest for making the grandest YouTube content in history.

There is not much information available at the moment about the video that Jimmy shot in Antarctica, but one thing is very prominent. This extreme venture had its toll on the young influencer. Jimmy missed the big night of YouTube Streamy Awards 2022, where he was awarded the “Creator of the Year” because he just got back from his trip to the south pole when the show was going on.

MrBeast also missed Fortnite’s legendary Chapter 4 trailer, where it was revealed that he will make an appearance in the game after the latest event. On December 5, 2022, The Game Awards posted on Twitter that “Fortnite has seemingly just teased that @MrBeast is coming to the game.” However, expressing his disappointment, MrBeast replied to this tweet by saying, “Of course they do this while I’m in Antarctica without signal.”
