Season 5 is here! Fortnite is down for maintenance as the patch rolls out and Epic have shared the patch notes detailing all the new content, gameplay and UI changes in the latest season. There are truckloads of tweaks, changes and additions – ranging from weapon alterations to new vehicles – so study up before dropping.
Most notably, the map will be receiving an update, but won’t be entirely changing as the rumours suggested. There is a new ‘Desert’ biome and two new locations, Paradise Palms and Lazy Links. A few unnamed places of interest have also been sprinkled across the island.
There’s also a new vehicle, the All Terrain Kart (the ATK) which will accommodate your whole squad. It’ll drift, granting you a speed boost, and players can use the roof as a bounce pad. It’s sure to produce some quality, meme-worthy plays.
