Here are all the changes coming to Fortnite Season 5

Here are all the changes coming to Fortnite Season 5

"Viking ships, desert outposts, and ancient statues have appeared across the island", tease the brand new patch notes. In addition to balance changes and bug fixes, the latest version of Fortnite adds new locations to explore, a new vehicle to drive around the map, more challenges for free players to complete, and, as always, plenty of new cosmetics to unlock. Unfortunately, it's one hell of an effort to get the skin, with players needing to complete seven separate weeks of challenges. Hop in an ATK with your squad and uncover all new mysteries and locations. There are also two new locations - Paradise Palms and Lazy Links.

We won't see what the Fortnite Road Trip skin looks in-game like until Season 5 Week 7.

UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson resigns amid Cabinet's deep divisions over Brexit
Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg retorted sharply and rejected Ms Miller's calls for a second referendum at the end of the Brexit process.


You can, as ever, check out the full patch notes on the Epic Games blog while you wait for the game to come back online. All four members of a squad can climb inside, but also work together to enable higher jumps using a well-timed lean. The ATK also features a speed boost after drifting, the roof acting as a bounce pad and passengers in the back being able to help the driver leap over vehicles by leaning back and releasing. It's unclear what these Rifts can do, but players will be testing it out once the game's servers go live. Make up your own game with all new toys, available only in the Battle Pass. The very first Storm circle will also consistently do 1 damage regardless of how long the player has been stuck in the Storm.

This follows on from the release of the new Fortnite update as we mentioned eariler. Heavy shotguns have been given a 10 pellet magazine, instead of 5, and the ability to double pump has been reduced with the introduction of a shot delay.

USA delegates pushed for removal of resolution language calling on governments to "protect, promote and support breast-feeding." . A spokesperson for the Department of Health and Human Services, in an email to the Times , defended the administration's stance.


Another change is how players are able to earn extra XP when playing big team modes.

Auto-fire has also been added as an option in the iOS game - you can toggle it on and off in the settings menu. We see someone spraying graffiti on its tongue when suddenly that world becomes Fortnite and an onslaught of random historical items drop in.
