If you want every unlock for Fortnite Battle Royale Season 5 Battle Pass without having to earn it, you'll be paying nearly $150 (almost Rs. 9,720). Epic Games has also added desert outposts and a desert biome, viking ships and ancient statues onto the map, which may have fallen through the crack in the sky. The new vehicle is called the All Terrain Kart (ATK) golf cart. With the 5.0 update now installed, you're ready to grab your freshly-launched Battle Pass and start powering through those objectives!

This is on top of the other skins previously leaked and revealed as part of the games new Season 5 5.0 Patch Notes.

All of which arrives just after we got a look at some new scary looking skin on the games official patch notes which looks like something out of Conan the Barbarian.

Get a speed boost after drifting. If that wasn't enough, the roof also acts as a bounce pad. Lean back and release at the same time for a higher jump. "Test your courage and step through a Rift", says Epic.

The endgame will behave a bit differently now, as well, as the center of storm circles seven, eight, and nine can now shift in random directions. This should make it a little bit more challenging for players who prefer to camp as the Storm closes in.

Some changes to gameplay include adjustments to shotguns, which will now indicate how many pellets have hit, and it will be visible within the damage reticle.

The pellet spread of shotguns is no longer random, but they now have an added delay after firing. Also, after firing a shotgun, you won't be able to use a different shotgun for a short amount of time, presumably to avoid players weapon switching to fire off shotguns faster than they were created to be shot. "Fortnite" players will now earn XP when they revive their teammates in 50vs50 and Teams of 20 matches, according to Engadget.

Perhaps the biggest news for Switch players, however, and the addition we know many of you lovely readers have been waiting for, is the addition of gyro controls exclusively for the Nintendo Switch version of the game.
