"Fortnite" Season 5 Introduces New Vehicle & Desert Landscape

Fortnite season 5 is now available.

Having unlocked the golf toy, drop into the island and head over to Lazy Links, the spot on the map that replaced Anarchy Acres. And that means we've got a brand new map in which to dispatch our 99 battle royale rivals all over again.

In one of the biggest updates to Fortnite yet, Season 5 of Fortnite just kicked off with a handful of new additions to the game.

This Season features new changes to the map like a Viking ship, a desert outpost, and ancient statues!

Worlds collide in Season 5! Complete any four of these tasks to unlock the weekly featured Battle Pass reward. 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 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. 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. Other un-named POI have also been added to the island. You'll also be able to see how numerous pellets from a shot hit the target, which will be displayed by marks within the reticle, allowing you to see at a glance how effective your shot was. 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. Most importantly, however, there will be a small delay when you want to fire a shotgun straight after using another, so this will stop people stacking and spraying the hell out of each other with pumps. "Fortnite" players will now earn XP when they revive their teammates in 50vs50 and Teams of 20 matches, according to Engadget.

For Switch players, V5 adds gyro motion control options to the game.
