‘Fortnite’ season 5 introduces desert biome, golf carts and free weekly challenges

When Fortnite comes back online later today, shotguns will work a little differently. These Rifts act as mini portals that drop you into the same area from the sky, providing a quick escape route if an enemy squad has you pinned down.

"Super Deluxe and Limited Founders packs will return for the duration of the sale", reads an Epic blog post. While the list of changes is fairly extensive, one notable addition to the Switch version is gyroscope aiming.

To explore it all, players can ride around in the four-seater All Terrain Kart (ATK) that's essentially a tricked out and highly durable golf cart. The ATK can also get a temporary speed boost when players realize a successful drift. The first big new change is the new desert biome with two new locations: Paradise Palms and Lazy Links.

Carmelo Anthony, Oklahoma City Thunder will part ways this summer
According to ESPN , an agreement has been reached between Anthony's reps and the Thunder to split this summer. He is owed $27.9 million next season. "I don't think I can be effective as that type of player", he said.

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. You can now complete progressive challenges at your own pace.

One of the main skins of the season 5 Battle Pass is Rangarok which can be upgraded with new items as players progress further through the Battle Pass tiers.

Known as the "Blockbuster" in Season 4, Epic Games implemented a set of challenges which could only be unlocked over multiple weeks after players completed various tasks across the Season. They're also now rewarded based on aquiring a fixed amount of XP, not based on your season level.

Auto-fire has also been added as an option in the iOS game - you can toggle it on and off in the settings menu. They can be toggled on and off, but will allow aiming by moving the controllers. To rectify this, players can earn XP for reviving their teammates in 50v50 and Teams of 20 matches.
