Fortnite Season 5 is HERE

The phenomenon known as Fortnite continue to steam ahead with the release of Season 5 today!

Let’s just really push our imaginations and pretend that we so how have no clue what Fortnite was. This idea is a stretch of the imagination. Fortnite, the brain child of Epic Games, is a battle royale type game. The very basis concept of a battle royale game is usually a large number of player enter a stage, rush to find armor and weapons, and battle it out to be either the last standing team or last person standing. Think of the movie Hunger Games.

Now that you are all caught up, Season 5 is HERE!

New season means new additions. Here are some which stood out to us. For a full run down and patch report, head over to Epic Games. One of the noticeable things is the new map. The new locations of Paradise Palms and Lazy Links have been added.


A new vehicle, the All Terrain Kart (ATK) has been added. This new kart  has room for your entire squad. The kart can drift which adds speed. The roof can be used as a bounce pad and the ATK can be used to leap over obstacles. Leaning back and releasing will cause it to have a higher jump.


A new Battle Royale mode called Rifts! Very interesting!
