'Fortnite' season five adds a desert locale, golf carts and rifts

Like past Seasons this new Treasure Map challenge shouldn't prove too hard to wrap your head around. Also, after firing a shotgun, you won't be able to use a different shotgun for a short amount of time, presumably to avoid players weapon switching to fire off shotguns faster than they were created to be shot. But although I hope we never see a more realistic Fortnite, Epic Games' take on the battle royale genre is getting its first vehicle for Fortnite season 5 - an All Terrain Kart, also known as an ATK. Other un-named POI have also been added to the island.

As with previous Battle Pass achievements, the Fortnite skins appear to pull inspiration from iconic character.

While we've not yet been able to see the updates to the Fortnite map, we do know from these patch notes that there's a new map biome type that's a desert, and there are two new areas present, one called Paradise Palms, and one called Lazy Links. This new vehicle can hold your whole team, and it's driven by working together as rear passengers to lean back and release at the same time for high jumps, and get a speed boost after drifting. The center of the 7th, 8th and 9th Storm circles can now shift in random directions instead of just simply shrinking.

Starting in Season 5, progressive challenges will no longer be restricted to a single season. As always, do not forget to finish out the match you're in once you've completed a challenge in order to be sure you get credit for it.

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

In 50v50 or 20v20 modes, you'll now get bonus XP up to three times per match for reviving teammates. You can read about all of these and more over on Epic's site.
