Fortnite season 5 adds new locations, second vehicle, lots more

In addition to balance changes and bug fixes, the latest version of Fortnite adds new locations to explore, a new vehicle to drive around the map, more challenges for free players to complete, and, as always, plenty of new cosmetics to unlock.

The battle royale, last-man-standing-style game starts with 100 players parachuting on to an island. Passengers can also lean forward and back to manipulate the vehicle into maneuvering around objects and heighten jumps.

It includes peed boosts and a bounce pad roof and teammates can work together to help it jump over larger objects. Progressive challenges will now stay in the game, so you can complete them without having to rush, and they'll go off XP rather than season level.

You will also find pirate ships, ancient statues, and other new landmarks dotted around the map.

Are you aiming to complete all of Fortnite's Road Trip Challenges for Season 5?

You're also invited to step through a rift, with Epic promising "you're in for a wild ride". Fans can check out Epic Games' full patch notes for season 5 online. This should make it a little bit more challenging for players who prefer to camp as the Storm closes in.

As part of the 5.0 patch notes, Epic Games noted that Fortnite for Switch will now support motion or gyro controls for anyone wanting to use them. 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. The heavy shotgun now fires 10 pellets instead of 5, but the maximum damage of the weapon has been unchanged.

The biggest changes are to the Fortnite map. In a word, Fortnite season 5 appears to be massive.

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