Two new locations have been linked to the new desert terrain, Paradise Palms and Lazy Links. Finish the Road Trip Challenge each week, and you'll be well on your way to unlocking the coolest cosmetics for Fortnite Season 5.

Season 5 is here!

"Fortnite" season 5 also adds indicators on how many pellets hit when players are using shotguns.

A new mode of transport has also been added - the All Terrain Kart is a golf buggy that players can drive around and carry a whole squad.

Epic Games dropped the next phase of the popular battle royale game on Thursday, bringing new zany features and a new outpost location.

Who will be picked in the NFL Supplemental Draft?
The Browns traded away Jamar Taylor to the Arizona Cardinals for a late round pick and he didn't tackle. If multiple teams put in a bid in the same round, the player goes to the team with the highest pick.

Croatia vs. England preview, time, how to watch
The center-back will be key to limiting England's threat from set pieces and will be a useful weapon in the opposition box, too. Gareth Southgate has warned that England's semi-final against Croatia will be his side's toughest test at the World Cup so far.

Croatia Lands in Moscow Ahead of World Cup Showdown with England
France withstood nine shots from Belgium as Hugo Lloris kept a clean sheet, and Deschamps credited his side's effort at the back. Pogba, Mbappe, Giroud, Griezmann and co. will now await the victor of tomorrow's semifinal between England and Croatia.

You're also invited to step through a rift, with Epic promising "you're in for a wild ride".

The Season 5 mystery outfit still hasn't been revealed or datamined just yet and if it's anything like the skin we got in Season 4 - "The Visitor" for those who don't remember - then it's likely we won't see this until Week 7. The ATK also features a speed boost after drifting, the roof acting as a bounce pad and passengers in the back being able to help the driver leap over vehicles by leaning back and releasing. This unlocks the ability to play golf, which is one of the new "Toy" rewards in the Battle Pass. Toys function like emotes, but instead of just a dance they spawn physical items into the game that remain there indefinitely.

Progressive challenges are now completed by acquiring a fixed amount of XP and is no longer dependant on your season level. Epic has unveiled a new desert biome, giving you a break from the familiar luscious green pastures of the island.

The Lightning Bolts are always located in the same areas, and there are more than seven scattered around the island, so it should be easy enough to complete the challenge once you know where to find them.

This one's nothing major, but you will now be able to earn XP 'for reviving teammates in 50v50 and Teams of 20 LTMs up to three times per match (30XP, 10XP, 10XP)'.
