Fortnite Season 5 is finally here - here are the biggest changes

Fortnite Season 5 is finally here - here are the biggest changes

My biggest gripe with Splatoon 2's use of gyro aiming is that you're forced to use motion for aiming up and down, but Wolfenstein II lets you use the joystick at all times. The patch notes state that there's a brand-new desert biome, which could be a re-skin of the entire map (or part of it).

Epic has finally introduced a four-person vehicle. Epic Games has also made it a bit more hard to "double pump" in season 5. 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.

You will also find pirate ships, ancient statues, and other new landmarks dotted around the map.

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. Where storm circles would normally just shrink, Epic has decided that the seventh, eighth and ninth circles should move in random directions, giving campers a whole new headache to deal with.

Remember the cracks in the sky at the end of Season 4?

Microsoft Launches Its Cheapest "Surface Go" Tablet; Priced At $399
Available in 4GB RAM / 64GB storage , 8/128, 8/128 LTE and 8/256 LTE SKUs, but I don't think all of them will come out in one go. Considering the physical form of the Surface Go first, it is headlined as being the smallest and lightest Surface yet.

Here's everything we know about Fortnite Season 5-including its new Paradise Palms, desert and Lazy Links locations.

"Worlds collide in Season 5!". The season 5 free pass will "open up the first three challenges of every week to free players", according to Polygon.

When it comes to weapons, there are a handful of changes to shotguns, allowing you to see how many pellets hit your opponents. Most require you to build a structure to reach them.

Mobile gamers will now have the opportunity to fire on any enemy which enters their sights, but only if they turn the feature on. There will now be a delay when players switch from firing one shotgun to another. Show off to other players just how dedicated you are with a tricked out new style - one that is just really, frankly cool.
