Grab your squad and cruise the map in style!

Additionally, people with the Battle Pass will able to get a bunch of new cosmetics like costumes and new alternate looks for the classic pickaxe that every player starts with, plus some fun new toys and games to mess around with. The cheat sheet also pinpoints key named locations, such as Snobby Shores, Risky Reels, and Retail Row, and highlights the various spawn locations for the lightning bolts you'll have to track down.

You'll be able to quickly get between these and other existing locations in the new All Terrain Kart, Fortnite's first vehicle capable of carrying a squad. This new vehicle can hold your whole team, and it's driven by working together as rear passengers to lean back and release at the same time for high jumps, and get a speed boost after drifting.

New to Fortnite Season 5 are toys - props that you and your squad can play with on the map. There are also two brand new locations to explore: Paradise Palms and Lazy Links. The center of the 7th, 8th and 9th Storm circles can now shift in random directions instead of just simply shrinking.

There's also Road Trip tier rewards (similar to Blockbuster challenges from last season) as well as Drift Challenges.

"Fortnite" players will now earn XP when they revive their teammates in 50vs50 and Teams of 20 matches, according to Engadget.

For Switch players, V5 adds gyro motion control options to the game. Epic has unveiled a new desert biome, giving you a break from the familiar luscious green pastures of the island.
