'Fortnite' season five adds a desert locale, golf carts and rifts

Another leaked Fortnite skin is revealed

We won't know the full extent of cosmetic changes to the map and exactly what the new season's theme is until the servers come back online.

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 (ATK) has room for your entire squad.

The new Battle Pass also launches with Season 5, and as ever it can only be purchased in-game and costs 950 V-Bucks.

Trump also misrepresented Germany's energy picture, asserting coal and nuclear power are gone from the mix. Munich's Süddeutsche Zeitung headlined its story: "It is not only bad, it is catastrophic".

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. If you had the Season 4 Battle Pass you'll get some free levels on this one to kick start your progress, but there's also a change this time to how challenges are handled. These Rifts act as mini portals that drop you into the same area from the sky, providing a quick escape route if an enemy squad has you pinned down. The ATK is basically a ruggedized golf cart that enables speed boosts when drifting. Epic has brought some of them down to earth in the form of Rifts. 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. Update v5.0's patch notes inform the centres of Storm Circles 7, 8 and 9 can now shift in random directions, as opposed to shrinking as normal. The very first Storm circle will also consistently do 1 damage regardless of how long the player has been stuck in the Storm.

"Fortnite" season 5 also adds indicators on how many pellets hit when players are using shotguns. Epic Games has also made it a bit more hard to "double pump" in season 5.

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

Perhaps the biggest news for Switch players, however, and the addition we know many of you lovely readers have been waiting for, is the addition of gyro controls exclusively for the Nintendo Switch version of the game.
