'Fortnite' Season 5 Adds New Locations, ATK Vehicle And Rifts

Plus, why wouldn't you want to check out the new desert biome and collect that lighting bolt on your way to the new race track?! .

In one of the biggest updates to Fortnite yet, Season 5 of Fortnite just kicked off with a handful of new additions to the game. It looks like a sort of off-road golf kart, which is no less than you'd expect from Fortnite.

Fortnite season 5 is now available. The season 5 free pass will "open up the first three challenges of every week to free players", according to Polygon.

Season 5 of Fortnite is live, drastically changing the map and adding vehicle combat into the mix with the All Terrain Kart.

Those objects aren't the only things getting teleported - players can also take advantage of rifts and get zapped into the air to get a better look at the surrounding area and maybe get a drop on an enemy. This season includes toys, props that can be used to play games like basketball and golf with friends, as well as the usual stuff like new outfits and whatnot. "You're in for a wild ride", writes Epic Games in the description of the rifts. 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. Check out the full list of new updates here. Epic is also changing the way progressive challenges work - your progress toward completing these now carries over between seasons.

The Lightning Bolts are always located in the same areas, and there are more than seven scattered around the island, so it should be easy enough to complete the challenge once you know where to find them.

Heavy shotguns now fire ten pellets rather than five, but the overall damage of the shot is unchanged, meaning that each individual pellet now does half the damage it did before, but there are twice as many.

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