In season 5, the crack adds two new locations on the map: Paradise Palms and Lazy Links.

Fortnite is now offline on all platforms while it's getting patched and updated ready to support Season 5.

Here's what the area looks like when you get there.

In addition to these new features, "Fortnite" season 5 comes with a number of tweaks and fixes for the battle royale gameplay.

Like other challenges that task you with tracking down certain items, the Lightning Bolts can be found in various parts of the island. You will also unlock the Battle Pass challenges, including the new Drift and Road Trip challenges, and five free tiers.

Liverpool have been trying to reignite a deal despite a hands-off warning issued before the World Cup. Former Stoke boss Mark Hughes signed Shaqiri from Inter Milan in August 2015 for £12million.

Fortnite Season 5 has arrived alongside new content and Weekly Challenges. This season includes toys, props that can be used to play games like basketball and golf with friends, as well as the usual stuff like new outfits and whatnot. Season 5 of the hit game dropped on July 12. "You're in for a wild ride", writes Epic Games in the description of the rifts.

The new vehicle is a golf cart named the ATK, which stands for All Terrain Kart. Not only does this vehicle drive you and your mates around, but the roof acts as a bounce pad and if you leap over obstacles, everyone in the ATK can lean back and release simultaneously for a higher jump. We've already detailed where to find the Risky Reels treasure map, and now we've put together a guide to help you complete the other challenge that might give you some trouble this week: searching seven floating Lightning Bolts.

"Super Deluxe and Limited Founders packs will return for the duration of the sale", reads an Epic blog post. Check out the full list of new updates here. Heavy shotguns have been given a 10 pellet magazine, instead of 5, and the ability to double pump has been reduced with the introduction of a shot delay.

Another change is how players are able to earn extra XP when playing big team modes.
