Fortnite Season 5 launched Thursday, to the delight of millions of players.
The new season brings tons of additions and changes to the game, including a new vehicle, tons of cool skins, and even a new game mechanic.
But the most noticeable differences this season are the changes to the island, where every match takes place.
“Fortnite: Battle Royale’s” Season 5 is finally here, with a ton of new cosmetics, challenges, and even a new vehicle.
However, if you open up Fortnite right now, the first things you’ll notice are the changes and additions to the game’s map. The rifts have brought landmarks from entirely separate time periods, and even new biomes, to the island, and players are still uncovering all the latest additions.
Here are all the new points of interest and other changes to the island:

Upon dropping in to your first match in Season 5, you’ll immediately notice that the map has undergone a few big changes.
The most notable — and obvious — change is the introduction of an entirely new biome to the island: desert.
As many dataminers had predicted, the Season 5 map features a large swatch of desert landscape where Moisty Mire used to be.
In its place we now have Paradise Palms, a sandy resort area complete with cactuses, tumbleweeds, and lots of palm trees.
It’s likely that Paradise Palms is at least somewhat inspired by the tourist destination Palm Springs, California, especially given Epic Game’s recent decision to plant a real-life replica of the Durr Burger in the California desert last week.
Lazy Links has officially replaced Anarchy Acres in the Northern section of the map.
This point of interest will likely be a hub for finding the new driveable golf carts, because it features a large golf course where players can actually tee up!
