Fortnite teased season 5 on what’s to come with the one-time live event when a rocket launch started from the mountain near Snobby Shores and exploded in the sky opening a rift that slowly got bigger and bigger.
Now 12 July the patch notes for v 5.0 is out, and here’s what’s new:
- New Battle Pass, 100 levels, and 100 new rewards
- All Terrain Kart (Battle Royale)
This is a new in-game vehicle and fits your whole squad, You can find it in battle royales like you do for the carts. The roof acts as a bounce pad, and you get a small speed boost after drifting (yes you can drift 😲) and you can work together with your squad to jump over obstacles.
To jump over obstacles you lean back by holding S on keyboards or holding back on the thumbstick for controllers.
As you can tell this is gonna be a ton of fun and it looks pretty awesome too!
You can step through a portal and “You’re in for a wild ride.”
- Map updated
What’s new is the new desert biome with the new locations Paradise Palms and Lazy Links. Also, a few unnamed POIs can be found around the map.
Also, tons of fixes and adjustments. The more needed was this shotgun fix to make it more consistent.
“Adjusted shotgun spread patterns to be consistent with no random variation.”
and this one will have endgame campers to move around if the ring starts to move around.
“The center of Storm circles 7, 8, and 9 can now shift in random directions (instead of simply shrinking). As the storm closes in, it will move & shrink to the new location”
Update: Here’s the new season 5 cinematics
