Developer Epic Games' popular free-to-play online multiplayer shooter Fortnite entered into Season 5 Thursday, introducing a number of new aspects to the game including new areas and a usable vehicle.

This Season features new changes to the map like a Viking ship, a desert outpost, and ancient statues!

All-terrian golf carts, portals to spirit players around the map and a whole host of new features launched Thursday as the fifth season of Fortnite went live. And that means we've got a brand new map in which to dispatch our 99 battle royale rivals all over again. Squads will also be able to jump the ATK over obstacles. Passengers can also lean forward and back to manipulate the vehicle into maneuvering around objects and heighten jumps. Complete any four of these tasks to unlock the weekly featured Battle Pass reward. Epic Games says that Rifts will instantly take players to a random location when they step into them.

Fortnite Season 5 is here and the upcoming skins, gliders, emotes and more this season have been leaked. The very first Storm circle will also consistently do 1 damage regardless of how long the player has been stuck in the Storm. Other un-named POI have also been added to the island.

The heavy shotgun will now fire double the pellets, with 10 instead of 5, but the maximum damage will remain unchanged.

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. While the list of changes is fairly extensive, one notable addition to the Switch version is gyroscope aiming.
