Along with that, players will be able to drive and ride around in golf carts, called ATXs, only the second vehicle to come to the game after the shopping cart's recent introduction.

There are new upcoming cosmetics, including new skins, pickaxes, gliders, back bling and emotes.

Check out the Season 5 trailer and Battle Pass promo video below. As the storm closes in, the center can shift and shrink to a new location, so you'll have to pay way more attention now. Epic has unveiled a new desert biome, giving you a break from the familiar luscious green pastures of the island.

Tell me, partner.do ya feel lucky? Available in-game right now for 950 V-Bucks.

A brand new vehicle has been added: the All Terrain Kart or ATK. Epic has brought some of them down to earth in the form of Rifts. There's a lot to go over in the patch notes but some of the most notable new additions to the game will be the new All Terrain Kart (ATK) and Rifts that will be dotted around the battle royale map. At this point, we really don't know what to expect.

China says Liu Xia went to Germany for medical treatment
On a rainy night in the summer of 2012, Hu stood outside Liu's apartment and aimed a laser pointer at the window of her study. The first, Carl von Ossietzky, died of tuberculosis in Germany in 1938 while jailed for opposing Adolf Hitler's Nazi regime.

The way progressive challenges are handled is also changing, starting today with V5.

Unlike the past seasons though, Epic Games have seen fit to make a number of key changes.

Other changes include alterations to progressive challenges, which Epic says "will no longer be restricted to a single season", allowing you to progress at your own pace. As always, keep in mind to finish out the match you're in once you've completed a challenge in order to be sure you get credit for it. Presumably, you'll still be able to complete these during Season 6. They're also now rewarded based on aquiring a fixed amount of XP, not based on your season level.

In the Battle Pass section, things get a little trickier, as you'll have to do some exploration. For players who don't want to wait to get their Battle Pass tiers unlocked, Epic is offering a second version of the Battle Pass that starts with the first 25 levels already unlocked.
