  • Fortnite season 5 map changes

Today, Season 5 launches and Epic Games has given us our first official information on what to expect. Epic Games has also added desert outposts and a desert biome, viking ships and ancient statues onto the map, which may have fallen through the crack in the sky. All four members of a squad can climb inside, but also work together to enable higher jumps using a well-timed lean. It's also added two new named locations: Paradise Palms and Lazy Links, on top of a few anonymous areas that will surprise when you jump out of the Battle Bus.

The roof of the ATK also functions as a bounce pad. 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.

In order to jumpstart the competition, according to Epic Games, invitations have already been sent for the tournament and the participants will be made up of community and Fortnite players.

Interestingly, the centre of some Storm circles will now shift in random directions as well as shrink. This should make it a little bit more challenging for players who prefer to camp as the Storm closes in. Epic Games has also made it a bit more hard to "double pump" in season 5. Rather than their bullet spread being randomised, they'll now fire in a consistent manner, meaning you'll be able to learn where within their arc will actually get hit. 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.

In 50v50 or 20v20 modes, you'll now get bonus XP up to three times per match for reviving teammates.
