'Fortnite' Season 5 Adds New Locations, ATK Vehicle And Rifts

'Fortnite' Season 5 Adds New Locations, ATK Vehicle And Rifts

The biggest changes are to the Fortnite map. As with last season's instances of this challenge, you can explore Risky Reels to locate the treasure map, or you can simply head to where the treasure is-if you know where to go. You'll still need to complete four weekly challenges to unlock the reward, but at least free players will have more benchmarks to set for themselves. Once Season 5 of Fortnite comes online later today, we will report back with how the map has changed, and what the new theme of the game is like.

The rift created by the rocket launch has changed the map in a big way, adding a brand new desert biome, as well as two new named locations called Paradise Palms and Lazy Links.

The patch notes have also been released if you want a closer look at the changes, including the new features like the golf cart and rifts. If that wasn't enough, the roof also acts as a bounce pad. "Test your courage and step through a Rift", says Epic.

Check out the Season 5 trailer and Battle Pass promo video below. The very first Storm circle will also consistently do 1 damage regardless of how long the player has been stuck in the Storm.

In terms of changes to gameplay, the centre point of storm circles 7, 8, and 9 can now randomly shift to a new map location, meaning that the circle will start shrinking in a different direction rather than just closing in.

China vows to 'fight back' after USA threaten $200bn tariffs on goods
Earlier this year, Trump imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum, as well as products such as solar panels and washing machines . Stocks in China and the rest of Asia tumbled overnight, spreading to Europe after markets opened .

The Visitor skin hinted at the conclusion to Season 4, so it's possible that the Fortnite Road Trip mystery item will tease what's going to happen at the end of Season 5. No one is more excited than the team over at Epic Games however, and they couldn't wait to share what else is in store for the popular game's fifth season. There will now be a delay when players switch from firing one shotgun to another.

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

Auto-fire has also been added as an option in the iOS game - you can toggle it on and off in the settings menu.

Season 5 of Fortnite is finally here and the patch notes have already been released.
