"Fortnite" Season 5 Introduces New Vehicle & Desert Landscape

Adjust Comment Print

"Viking ships, desert outposts, and ancient statues have appeared across the island", explains Epic.

The map we all know and love has gone through a bit of a sandy makeover, and it now now mostly represents a golden desert.

Rifts have also been added to Fortnite's world. "You're in for a wild ride", writes Epic Games in the description of the rifts.

So, this is one you were all requesting for the end of Season 4.

Buy the Battle Pass and you'll be immediately treated to two brand new outfits and new emotes - with many more to unlock throughout the season. Where storm circles would normally just shrink, Epic has decided that the seventh, eighth and ninth circles should move in random directions, giving campers a whole new headache to deal with. You'll probably get a fancy new back bling to match with it as well, but unfortunately we'll have to wait until at least Week 7 of Season 5 to see who this new character is, unless someone manages to data mine it before then. Completing all of this week's challenges will reward you with the first loading screen and this is where to find the battle pass tier on the map.

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.

"Super Deluxe and Limited Founders packs will return for the duration of the sale", reads an Epic blog post.

Mobile gamers will now have the opportunity to fire on any enemy which enters their sights, but only if they turn the feature on.

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.

These aren't just little props though. Are you exited for Season 5?
