You can read about all of these and more over on Epic's site.

The new season has also been preceded by Fortnite items, including Llamas and the Durr Burger sign appearing in real life locations around the world. You'll also be able to see how numerous pellets from a shot hit the target, which will be displayed by marks within the reticle, allowing you to see at a glance how effective your shot was. Epic Games has also made it a bit more hard to "double pump" in season 5. In the free section it's all about dealing damage and taking out opponents using weapons including the SMG, the Stink Bomb, and grenade. "Hop in an All Terrain Kart (ATK) with your squad and uncover all-new mysteries and locations that await". In season 5, the crack adds two new locations on the map: Paradise Palms and Lazy Links. 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. 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. You'll need to complete another six weeks' worth of challenges in order to unlock that. This means that if you're really close to a new reward and the new season is imminent, you won't lose your chance to get that skin you spent the whole month trying to earn. For the Nintendo Switch, Epic games has also included motion controls which can be adjusted in the Settings menu.

In 50v50 or 20v20 modes, you'll now get bonus XP up to three times per match for reviving teammates. They can be toggled on and off, but will allow aiming by moving the controllers.

"Fortnite" season 5 is here and it adds a bunch of new skins, locations and a new vehicle.
