Fortnite Battle Royale Season 5 Is Here


Fortnite Battle Royale season 5 is here. The announcement trailer and patch notes emphasize the "worlds collide" tagline, drawing on Fortnite's recent weird crossovers with the real world. The season update brings a new vehicle, the all-terrain kart, to Battle Royale mode. The kart has room for four players, grants a speed boost after drifting, and has a roof that acts as a bounce pad.
Portals called Rifts also come to Battle Royale. Walking or driving through a Rift will send you high into the sky, as Twitter user MetalRose demonstrates. A new desert biome has been added to the Battle Royale map, along with new locations Paradise Palms and Lazy Links. For full patch notes, head here.
