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

Another leaked Fortnite skin is revealed

In the desert biome Moisty Mires has been replaced by Paradise Palms which is a new tropical-themed location that includes various buildings and palm trees.

Now that Season 5 is underway, the Battle Star for the Week 1 challenges has been discovered with the hint coming via the loading screen that is unlocked following the completion of the necessary challenges. As we mentioned though, you can find all this detail in the above gallery which will make sure you don't get lost.

Fortnite Season 5 is here and the upcoming skins, gliders, emotes and more this season have been leaked. Other un-named POI have also been added to the island. The new season of "Fortnite" also adds Rifts to the map that allows players to instantly teleport to a random location in battle royale.

Where Shopping Carts provided some extra zip for duos, Epic has gone one better in Season 5 with the introduction of the All Terrain Kart (ATK). Not only does this vehicle drive you and your mates around, but the roof acts as a bounce pad and if you leap over obstacles, everyone in the ATK can lean back and release simultaneously for a higher jump.




Fortnite season five has finally landed, bringing some of the biggest changes the world's hottest game has seen since making its debut. These will take you "for a wild ride" if you dare step in, so maybe they'll act as some kind of teleportation portal. Once a full slate of weekly challenges are completed, a player must then find the corresponding hidden Battle Star on the map for that respective week.

This time around, there are tons of new features for you to enjoy. You can read about all of these and more over on Epic's site.

The heavy shotgun will now fire double the pellets, with 10 instead of 5, but the maximum damage will remain unchanged. While the list of changes is fairly extensive, one notable addition to the Switch version is gyroscope aiming.
