At the end of season 4, Epic Games launched the rocket in "Fortnite" and it created a crack on the sky over the battle royale map.

As for the map itself, Epic has added in a new desert biome which was something that was heavily hinted it over the last couple of days with all sorts of teasers.

The new All Terrain Kart has space for your entire squad, so says update v5.0's patch notes.

Fortnite is now offline on all platforms while it's getting patched and updated ready to support Season 5.

Along with these skins, one other outfit was also revealed on the Epic Games website when the patch notes for v5.0 where posted initially.


Check out the Season 5 trailer and Battle Pass promo video below. We're not just talking about those rifts either, we're talking an entirely new biome!

Get a speed boost after drifting. All four members of a squad can climb inside, but also work together to enable higher jumps using a well-timed lean. The roof of the kart also acts as a bounce pad. Some of these include viking ships, desert outposts, and ancient islands, new Flintlock weapon sets, and a new vehicle called the All Terrain Kart (ATK) for you and your squad to uncover all new locales in-game. 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. This should provide players with more information on why their point blank hits are only registering small damages. Shotgun spread will now be consistent with no random variation.

Epic Games has also nerfed the "double pump" strategy yet again, as another shotgun will not be able to be fired for "a very short time" after firing another one.

Auto-fire has also been added as an option in the iOS game - you can toggle it on and off in the settings menu. "Fortnite" players will now earn XP when they revive their teammates in 50vs50 and Teams of 20 matches, according to Engadget.

Season 5 of Fortnite is finally here and the patch notes have already been released.
