Viking ships and ancient statues have appeared on the map, while a drought in the Moisty Mire region has yielded a new desert landscape. Unfortunately, it's one hell of an effort to get the skin, with players needing to complete seven separate weeks of challenges.

V5 introduces a new vehicle option called the ATK, or All Terrain Kart. Once Season 5 of Fortnite comes online later today, we will report back with how the map has changed, and what the new theme of the game is like. The first big new change is the new desert biome with two new locations: Paradise Palms and Lazy Links. As with last season's instances of this challenge, you can explore Risky Reels to locate the treasure map, or you can simply head to where the treasure is-if you know where to go. The All Terrain Kart can fit an entire four-person squad, offers a speed boost after drifting, and allows passengers to lean back in order to get greater height on jumps.

The patch notes have also been released if you want a closer look at the changes, including the new features like the golf cart and rifts. The roof of the kart also acts as a bounce pad. Epic has brought some of them down to earth in the form of Rifts. It remains unclear how exactly this will work, but it's possible that players will be sucked into a Rift and be teleported to a different location. In the free section it's all about dealing damage and taking out opponents using weapons including the SMG, the Stink Bomb, and grenade.

The patch notes details a lot of tweaks that have been made to the game such as adjusted.shotgun spread patterns, heavy shotguns now firing 10 pellets instead of 5 along with bug fixes.

Interestingly, the centre of some Storm circles will now shift in random directions as well as shrink. To rectify this, players can earn XP for reviving their teammates in 50v50 and Teams of 20 matches. For the Nintendo Switch, Epic games has also included motion controls which can be adjusted in the Settings menu.

Looking ahead to later today we might get our first set of weekly Battle Royale challenges for Season 5 Week 1.
