More on Fortnite
Epic have released the patch notes for the fifth season of content in Fortnite - and it looks like there'll be a lot of new stuff to experience including a whole new vehicle to zoom around the map either alone or in your squad.
The 'all terrain kart' comes with the ability to drift and gain a speed boost and if you co-ordinate with the rest of your squad by pulling back over jumps at the same time, you'll be able to increase the height you can reach.
The rifts that have been appearing for a while now have a purpose with the release notes saying "Test your courage and step through a Rift. You’re in for a wild ride."
This applies to the Battle Royale mode of the game so we're expecting some exciting events when you do this.
The map has been updated with new biomes - Paradise Palms, Lazy Links and even a desert are now part of the island giving us new areas to explore and there are also a number of unnamed new points of interest that include viking ships, desert outposts, and ancient statues.
The storm will behave differently this season and will shift more randomly rather than focusing into a central point.
There are also loads of new skins and updates listed in the notes including new weapons and skins for the paid Save The World mode; which also introduces a 'Challenge the Horde' event.
There are a huge number of other updates that apply to the whole game - both modes - and you can read about them here.
To mark the launch of Season 5 there is a new Battlepass with a whole new set of challenges to take part in over the next season of Fortnite Battle Royale..
Fortnite Season 5 starts today!
