Here’s how the Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass works

Fortnite Season 5 is here, and much like Season 4, there are some unique challenges to complete. This time, the Drift and Road Trip challenges have arrived in the game, offering unique rewards, as well as the opportunity to add to your battle pass tiers.

While the challenges are recognisable if you played Season 4, there are some slight tweaks. Road Trip is similar to the Blockbuster challenges – completing a full week of Battle Pass challenges will grant you a new loading screen. Complete enough of them, and you’ll earn a new skin. For Season 4, that was the Visitor, but we won’t get a look at Season 5’s mystery skin for a while yet.

Here’s everything we know about Fortnite season 5.

Fortnite’s Drift challenges are most similar to the Carbide challenges from last season. To complete those, you simply had to level up, receiving new rewards at certain thresholds. For Drift, however, it’s even easier, as all you need to do is earn XP, with skins awarded at various points from 10,000 to 200,000 XP.

The Battle Pass itself has also changed. Previously, once you’d bought in, you had access to all seven weekly challenges. You could still earn some rewards for free, of course, but you had to do so through a gruelling XP grind. Now, those who are truly playing for free have slightly more options open to them – three challenges every week will be available to everyone, while you’ll have to pay for the other four.

Fortnite Season 5 has brought some major changes. As well as a look at all the Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass skins, which you can check out in the video above, you can also take a look at the Fortnite Season 5 map. The Fortnite Season 5 patch notes have also appeared, featuring all of the changes, from inter-dimensional rifts to All Terrain golf carts.
