At the end of season 4, Epic Games launched the rocket in "Fortnite" and it created a crack on the sky over the battle royale map. We won't know the full extent of cosmetic changes to the map and exactly what the new season's theme is until the servers come back online. "Worlds collide in Season 5!" the official Fortnite Twitter page tweeted. You'll probably get a fancy new back bling to match with it as well, but unfortunately we'll have to wait until at least Week 7 of Season 5 to see who this new character is, unless someone manages to data mine it before then. The new vehicle is called the All Terrain Kart (ATK) golf cart. The ATK can also get a temporary speed boost when players realize a successful drift.

Other new features are Rifts, which pop up throughout the map.

Of course, Epic is also hoping to take more of your money with a new Season 5 Battle Pass available as an in-app purchase, offering 100 levels and more than 100 new rewards.

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

One of the big changes is the introduction of a desert biome which replaces the swamp area that was found in the south east area of the map. The game continues with the last-player standing format, but adds its own twist that changes everything: you can instantly build walls and stairs, allowing you create fortifications to protect yourself.
