'Fortnite' Season 5 is here with some big changes

'Fortnite' Season 5 is here with some big changes

Following Season 4's meteor strike, the story progressed throughout culminating in a rocket launch that tore rifts in the sky and started producing portals across the island. The All Terrain Kart can fit an entire four-person squad, offers a speed boost after drifting, and allows passengers to lean back in order to get greater height on jumps. Here's how you unlock the Fortnite Road Trip skin. While there are still progressive challenges to unlock new armor for Battle Pass skins these challenges can be completed at anytime: not just within the season. Once Season 5 of Fortnite comes online later today, we will report back with how the map has changed, and what the new theme of the game is like. For season 5, Epic is changing things up adding new locations called Paradise Palms and Lazy Links, and there are new unnamed POIs too across the island. There's a lot to go over in the patch notes but some of the most notable new additions to the game will be the new All Terrain Kart (ATK) and Rifts that will be dotted around the battle royale map. It's not entirely clear, but it suggests that your Battle Pass tiers can now carry over to future seasons.

Interestingly, the centre of some Storm circles will now shift in random directions as well as shrink. This should make it a little bit more challenging for players who prefer to camp as the Storm closes in.

Brent crude fell $2.51 to $76.30 a barrel by 11.30 pm, IST, while United States crude was down $1.74 at $72.37 a barrel. Shares of Advance Auto Parts Inc were down 1.6%, Autozone Inc fell 1.8% and O'Reilly Automotive nearly 2%.

Those objects aren't the only things getting teleported - players can also take advantage of rifts and get zapped into the air to get a better look at the surrounding area and maybe get a drop on an enemy. The heavy shotgun now fires 10 pellets instead of 5, but the maximum damage of the weapon has been unchanged. There will now be a delay when players switch from firing one shotgun to another. To rectify this, players can earn XP for reviving their teammates in 50v50 and Teams of 20 matches.

But what fans really want to know is whether or not Save the World is free with Season 5.
