At the end of season 4, Epic Games launched the rocket in "Fortnite" and it created a crack on the sky over the battle royale map.

The new All Terrain Kart has space for your entire squad, so says update v5.0's patch notes.

Fortnite Battle Royale Season 5 Battle Pass price is $10 (around Rs. 650) which works out to 950 V-Bucks, Epic's in-game currency for Fortnite.

You can, as ever, check out the full patch notes on the Epic Games blog while you wait for the game to come back online. Where Shopping Carts provided some extra zip for duos, Epic has gone one better in Season 5 with the introduction of the All Terrain Kart (ATK).

Brits set for NATIONWIDE protests ahead of London trip
Mr Khan said he supported the decision taken by the Greater London Authority, adding that it was not for him to be a "censor". Protesters are also expected to show up at Chequers, the prime minister's country residence, and Windsor Castle.

The patch notes also tease new Rifts that can be interacted with. The height of the jump will depend on how well players are able to lean back and release at the same time. If that wasn't enough, the roof also acts as a bounce pad. Some of these include viking ships, desert outposts, and ancient islands, new Flintlock weapon sets, and a new vehicle called the All Terrain Kart (ATK) for you and your squad to uncover all new locales in-game.

In terms of changes to gameplay, the centre point of storm circles 7, 8, and 9 can now randomly shift to a new map location, meaning that the circle will start shrinking in a different direction rather than just closing in. However, the first storm circle will now only ever do 1 damage, no matter how long you're stuck in it. 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. Epic Games has also made it a bit more hard to "double pump" in season 5. There will now be a delay when players switch from firing one shotgun to another.

Perhaps the biggest news for Switch players, however, and the addition we know many of you lovely readers have been waiting for, is the addition of gyro controls exclusively for the Nintendo Switch version of the game.

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