Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 map changes
The Fortnite Chapter 5 map introduces players to a whole new world of exploration, featuring multiple biomes such as grasslands, desert, forest, and a frozen tundra. Each biome is home to new named locations as well as numerous smaller landmarks just waiting to be discovered on the battle royale island.
Some of the game's points of interest (POIs) are Ritzy Riviera, a marina in the west, Rebel's Roost, a mansion in the northern forest, Hazy Hillside atop an alpine village, and the Grand Glacier Hotel, where I can pretend it's The Overlook from The Shining. Notably, there is also Reckless Railways, confirming the recent rumor of a functional train system for the season, with railroad tracks sprawling across the island, providing new ways to navigate the hostile world. Additionally, the new Trailsmasher SUV is available for more private travel, parked at various spots around the map, offering a great off-roading option.
The NPCs have made a return to the island after a brief absence in Fortnite OG. Among them are five bosses - Oscar, Nisha, Montague, Valeria, and even Family Guy's Peter Griffin. Defeating these bosses will reward players with Society Medallions, providing a regenerating shield buff while also marking the player on the map for others to hunt down.
In addition to the returning NPCs, FlowBerries have been introduced as a new consumable fruit on the island. These berries not only replenish shields for the player and their teammates, but also temporarily allow for low-gravity jumping, cancelling out fall damage similar to a Hop Flopper fish.
Discover even more secrets waiting to be uncovered, like the hidden vault locations filled with top-tier loot for this season. Don't forget to explore all the new features in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 before diving into the action.
Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 has arrived, bringing with it a brand-new map and a host of new features. The map is set in a completely different world, with new biomes, locations, and landmarks to explore. There's a new train system that allows players to travel around the map quickly, and new NPCs to interact with.
Overall, I'm really excited about the changes to the Fortnite map in Chapter 5 Season 1. The new biomes are a lot of fun to explore, and the new train system is a great way to get around. I'm also looking forward to discovering all of the new secrets that are hidden around the map.
