We won't know the full extent of cosmetic changes to the map and exactly what the new season's theme is until the servers come back online. You'll also be able to see how numerous pellets from a shot hit the target, which will be displayed by marks within the reticle, allowing you to see at a glance how effective your shot was.

The company has also seen fit to indicate how many shotgun pellets hit a rival player, providing more context as to why a point-blank shotgun shot only registered 8 damage. There are also two new locations for players to visit called Paradise Palms and Lazy Links.

There's also a new vehicle, the All Terrain Kart (the ATK) which will accommodate your whole squad. It provides a speed boost after drifting, the roof acts as a bounce pad, and you can "work together as rear passengers to leap over obstacles". In order to complete those challenges you'll need to head to Snobby Shores and seek out seven chests, which you should be able to spot pretty easily.


Starting in Season 5, progressive challenges will no longer be restricted to a single season.

Auto-fire has also been added as an option in the iOS game - you can toggle it on and off in the settings menu. As a big fan of motion control in shooter games, I am very excited about this particular addition.

The new season has also been preceded by Fortnite items, including Llamas and the Durr Burger sign appearing in real life locations around the world. "Fortnite" players will now earn XP when they revive their teammates in 50vs50 and Teams of 20 matches, according to Engadget. Until then, it's time to get refreshing that login button.
