Epic has kicked off the first week of Season 5 with seven new tasks of varying difficulty. These Rifts act as mini portals that drop you into the same area from the sky, providing a quick escape route if an enemy squad has you pinned down.

As exciting as Fortnite's fourth season was, with consumable comet fragments, a Thanos crossover event, and even a surprise rocket launch, the game's fifth season might be even bigger.

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

Of course, Epic is also hoping to take more of your money with a new Season 5 Battle Pass available as an in-app purchase, offering 100 levels and more than 100 new rewards. Rewards change each Season, so check out the Battle Pass tab in the game to see what can be earned.

Fortnite season 5 is now here and players have already started exploring the new additions to the game. There are also a notable number of rifts still lurking around the map.
