For months now, “Fortnite: Battle Royale” has kept players on their toes with weekly — and sometimes daily — updates to the game, including new character skins, limited-time game modes, and fun and interesting challenges.
Some of those updates have been just for fun, and some actually change the way the game is played. For example, in the days leading up to the beginning of Season 4, the game hinted that a meteor shower would change the island forever. When the meteor did hit, it caused a large crater in the enter of the map, turning Dusty Depot into the craterous Dusty Divot. Later, there was even a limited-time tie-in with “Avengers: Infinity War.”
The developers have also introduced or removed a few truly game-changing tools, including jetpacks, guided missiles, a rideable shopping cart, and now rifts.
This week’s update corresponded with the transition to Battle Pass Season 5, which ushered in several new locations on the island, a new vehicle, and even a new game mechanic.
