Fortnite Season 5's v5.0 patch notes and opening cinematic

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.

There's also a new vehicle, the All Terrain Kart (the ATK) which will accommodate your whole squad. Check out all of those in full here, and I'll leave you with Season 5's Battle Pass trailer. But we have had a chance to read over the V5 patch notes, which have given us a glimpse at what the game is going to look like when it returns later today.

Everything we know about Fortnite Season 5 points us towards visitors from space, mysterious TV signals, and tears in the fabric of reality. It provides a speed boost after drifting, the roof acts as a bounce pad, and you can "work together as rear passengers to leap over obstacles".

TwoEpicBuddies also uncovered lots of new gliders and pickaxes on the way with the v5.0 patch - as well as another secret skin unlocked at the highest tier of the battle pass. "Test your courage and step through a Rift", says Epic. It's unclear what these Rifts can do, but players will be testing it out once the game's servers go live. There are truckloads of tweaks, changes and additions - ranging from weapon alterations to new vehicles - so study up before dropping. The centre of the seventh, eighth, and ninth storm circles have also changed, now being able to shift in random directions (instead of simply shrinking). This should make it a little bit more challenging for players who prefer to camp as the Storm closes in. 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. There will now be a delay when players switch from firing one shotgun to another.

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

Auto-fire has also been added as an option in the iOS game - you can toggle it on and off in the settings menu.

Season 5 of Fortnite is finally here and the patch notes have already been released.
