Fortnite Season 5 and Battle Pass Is Now Live
Fortnite has just unleashed Season 5, bringing fresh changes to the map. A viking ship, desert outpost and ancient statues are appearing on the island. What does all of this mean? In addition, a brand new four person vehicle is also available. The All Terrain Kart can ferry you and your squad across the map with ease.
A new Season means an all new Battle Pass too, packed with over 100 new rewards. It’s available right now in-game for 950 V-Bucks. Challenge your squad to a game of basketball or golf, or toss around a beach ball with friends.
You’ll instantly get two exclusive outfits, then play to level up your Battle Pass to earn up to 100 rewards worth over 25,000 V-Bucks. Similar to previous Battle Passes, you’ll be able to complete Weekly Challenges to level up and earn rewards faster. Complete enough Weekly Challenges and you’ll uncover exclusive rewards.
New to Fortnite? Here’s some new player tips from Epic Games themselves:
- Building is your friend – Throw up a wall to stop a barrage of bullets or use those stairs to snag a chest from the attic!
- Pick your battles – There’s no shame in finding a bush to play it safe while the battle rages on, choose your moment and strike!
- Explore the Map – The world is full objects that will help you claim Victory Royale and progress your account. Find fresh apples to recover your health, or gnomes to complete a challenge.
