A viking ship, desert outpost, and ancient statues have appeared on the island, changing the world of Fortnite as we know it. Hop in an ATK (All Terrain Kart) with your squad and uncover all new mysteries and locations. One giant map, A Battle Bus, Last one standing wins. Fans can check out Epic Games' full patch notes for season 5 online.

As with previous Battle Pass achievements, the Fortnite skins appear to pull inspiration from iconic character. The height of the jump will depend on how well players are able to lean back and release at the same time.

It sounds like there will be a ton of new stuff to discover on the map, and the new All Terrain Kart will be flawless for exploration with your squad.

As expected, the map has changed following the rocket launch and subsequent appearance of mysterious rifts. The ATK can also get a temporary speed boost when players realize a successful drift. Epic Games says that Rifts will instantly take players to a random location when they step into them. This should make it a little bit more challenging for players who prefer to camp as the Storm closes in. However, the first storm circle will now only ever do 1 damage, no matter how long you're stuck in it.

The patch notes details a lot of tweaks that have been made to the game such as adjusted.shotgun spread patterns, heavy shotguns now firing 10 pellets instead of 5 along with bug fixes.

Fortnite Season 5 will be available to play today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. Epic is also changing the way progressive challenges work - your progress toward completing these now carries over between seasons.

"After firing a shotgun, another shotgun can not be fired for a very short time".

In 50v50 or 20v20 modes, you'll now get bonus XP up to three times per match for reviving teammates.
