As expected, the biggest changes are within the map. The ATK can also get a temporary speed boost when players realize a successful drift.
This follows on from the release of the new Fortnite update as we mentioned eariler. However, the patch notes for the beginning of Season 5 are already live, revealing new locations, vehicles, and a host of new features coming to the game. In season 5, the crack adds two new locations on the map: Paradise Palms and Lazy Links.
You can read the full list of patch notes below. The rear passengers can even work together with the driver to jump over obstacles on the map by leaning back and then releasing at the same time for a higher jump. If that weren't enough, there's also a Bounce Pad on the roof.
Test your courage and step through a Rift.
Additionally, people with the Battle Pass will able to get a bunch of new cosmetics like costumes and new alternate looks for the classic pickaxe that every player starts with, plus some fun new toys and games to mess around with. This should make it a little bit more challenging for players who prefer to camp as the Storm closes in. There are also some damage and bullet drop-off changes to the SMG. This should provide players with more information on why their point blank hits are only registering small damages. Heavy shotguns have been given a 10 pellet magazine, instead of 5, and the ability to double pump has been reduced with the introduction of a shot delay.
As exciting as Fortnite's fourth season was, with consumable comet fragments, a Thanos crossover event, and even a surprise rocket launch, the game's fifth season might be even bigger. That last one is my favourite, which shows the player tapping their head before "2 + 2 = 4" is scrawled before them.
In 50v50 or 20v20 modes, you'll now get bonus XP up to three times per match for reviving teammates. For the Nintendo Switch, Epic games has also included motion controls which can be adjusted in the Settings menu.
