When was Fortnite season 5 released and what were the changes?
As always a new Battle Pass brings with it plenty of new skins, emotes and pickaxes and the main customisable upgradeable skins this time are called Drift and Ragnarok.
It will include vehicles, with a new All Terrain Kart, which holds up to four people and has a bounce pad on the roof.
Original location Anarchy Aches has also paved way for the introduction of beachside holiday site Lazy Links.
Moisty Mire has also been wiped from memory in place of a new desert biome called Paradise Palms, a tropical-themed location in the south-east area of the map.
The desert has « unique ambient audio », while other areas will be getting their own versions « in future updates », according to Epic Games.
Competitive play with a HUGE prize pool is also on the way, but this is separate from this patch.
For a limited time period, Fortnite’s birthday challenges were available to complete to celebrate the game’s one-year anniversary.
