This time around, there are tons of new features for you to enjoy. Fans can check out Epic Games' full patch notes for season 5 online. There is a viking ship, a desert outpost and ancient statutes scattered throughout the map. There is a four-person All Terrian Kart. We can now forget about slugging up a hill with our shopping trolleys because this new buggie is fully motorised. The ATK can also get a temporary speed boost when players realize a successful drift. That's all we know until the servers come back up.

There's a new California desert biome that's taken over a section of the map, according to our sister site Variety. 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.

The soccer field that was added in the middle of season 4 has also been removed, which means it was likely just a temporary point of interest for the World Cup.

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.

What has changed in the season 5 map?

The battle royale, last-man-standing-style game starts with 100 players parachuting on to an island. You'll now be able to see how many pellets made contact with your enemy, through the reticle, and the spread pattern for each shot will become consistent. The heavy shotgun now fires 10 pellets instead of 5, but the maximum damage of the weapon has been unchanged. While the list of changes is fairly extensive, one notable addition to the Switch version is gyroscope aiming. Gamers are already finding out that if you ride your ATK through one, you'll be transported high above the arena to another area.

Almost ten months after its release, Fortnite: Battle Royale continues to be a massive success.
