Fortnite Season 5 is finally here — here are the biggest changes
“Fortnite: Battle Royale’s” newest Battle Season is here, and it’s a doozy.
In Fortnite, the changing of seasons brings a new theme to the game’s Battle Pass, and often many cosmetic changes to the map. For example, in the days leading up to the beginning of Season 4, the game hinted that a meteor shower would change the island forever. When the meteor did hit, it caused a large crater in the enter of the map, turning Dusty Depot into the craterous Dusty Divot.
This time around, a one-time in-game event — involving a rocket launch and rifts in the space-time continuum — was a signal to players that this new Season would include massive changes to the island, and that transition to Season 5 would be the biggest one yet.
Here’s what’s new in Fortnite today:
Season 5 is here! As expected, the rifts have played a pivotal role in this season’s introduction, and will likely continue to provide players with more surprises in the weeks to come.
Check out the trailer for Season 5:
Once you drop into the game today, you’ll immediately notice that Season 5 has brought some major changes. Perhaps the most obvious is that the landscape in the southeastern side of the map is now entirely desert.
Moisty Mire is now officially Paradise Palms, a sandy desert complete with cactuses, tumbleweeds, and lots of palm trees.
It’s likely that Paradise Palms is at least somewhat inspired by resort destination Palm Springs, California, especially given Epic Game’s recent decision to plant a real-life replica of the Durr Burger in the California desert last week.
