Worlds collide in Fortnite’s Season 5, available now!

Epic Games is excited to announce the launch of Fortnite’s Season 5 is finally here! Players can drop in now and find all kinds of changes to the Battle Royale map. A Viking ship, ancient statues have appeared on the island, and Moisty Mire has been hit with a drought, bringing with it a brand new desert outpost.

Fortnite’s first four-person vehicle has also arrived! Players can hop in a zippy All Terrain Kart (ATK) with their squad and uncover all-new mysteries and locations … the possibilities are endless!

A new season means a new Battle Pass! Packed with more than 100 rewards, including all new toys and cosmetics, players can pick up the Battle Pass for 950 V-bucks to start earning rewards.

GENERAL

  • When the “Invited to Party” prompt appears in the UI you can now immediately accept the invite rather than having to open the Party Finder.
  • The News widget has been adjusted to avoid the need for a scrollbar in most cases.
    • A scroll option has been added for controller users in the event that scrolling is needed.
  • Updated consoles to use less shader storage. This improves patch sizes and reduces load times.
  • Optimized file ordering to reduce load times on all platforms.
  • The “Epic Friends” button now appears on the Main Menu when using a gamepad on Windows or Mac.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that intermittently caused the Push-To-Talk setting to not function as intended.
  • Blocked players will no longer show as suggested friends.
