Fortnite update 15.0 PATCH NOTES, Season 5 new skins, map changes and Mandalorian

UPDATE: Fortnite developer Epic Games has released update 15.0 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and Android. The game will be offline until approximately 9am GMT UK time, although there's a chance it will return earlier than expected. In the meantime, fans can download the new 15.0 update, which introduces a new Battle Pass, new map locations and lots more. "The Zero Point is exposed, but no one escapes the Loop, not on your watch," reads the Epic Games post. "Recruit the greatest hunters across all Realities to stop the Island from falling into complete Chaos." As part of the new season, players will perform missions for the new Hunters that have appeared on the island. New weapons will also be introduced, including the Dragon's Breath Shotgun, and the Mandalorian's Amban Sniper Rifle. New map locations include a gladiator Coliseum, a jungle area and the Zero Point wastelands. Check out the updated patch notes below for a look at what's new. Fortnite Season 5 Zero Point is out now Fortnite update 15.0 patch notes and new features... The Hunt is On • The Zero Point is exposed, but no one escapes the Loop, not on your watch.

New Hunting Grounds • New hunters means new locations from beyond the Loop. Battle for honor in an ancient arena, sharpen your survival skills in the jungle, and explore the shifting crystalline sands flowing from the exposed Zero Point. Help for Hire • As a hunter, it's your duty to help the Island's Characters in their unstable new reality.

Spend Your Wages • The new Characters only accept one form of payment: Bars! Earn Bars by completing quests and bounties, eliminating players, or finding hidden stashes around the Island. Spend your earned Bars on new Exotic weapons, upgrades, intel, services and more. Fortnite Battle Pass skin rewards New Weapons, New Tricks • New weapons let you attack in novel ways. Unleash your fiery rage with the Dragon's Breath Shotgun, switch between melee and ranged with the Mandalorian's Amban Sniper Rifle, track your target with the Night Hawk, and more. Hunters and vendors are also working to bring you more weapons throughout the season, so keep an eye out! All-New Battle Pass • Agent Jones has brought in the greatest Hunters across Realities to the Island. Pick up the Season 5 Battle Pass and unlock Mancake the fighting Flapjack, Mave the shapeshifter and the ultimate bounty hunter, The Mandalorian, with his companion The Child. Who's Next? • The hunters on the Island are only the first to arrive from outside the Loop... Throughout the Season, Agent Jones will bring in even more hunters from the Realities beyond. Fortnite Season 5 map ORIGINAL: Fortnite fans are counting down to the start of Season 5, which is just a few hours away. Fortnite Season 5 has a December 2 release date on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and Android. Where things get a little more confusing is the launch time. The in-game clock is counting down to 5am GMT (12am ET). However, Epic Games describes this as the "prep state" for Season 5. When the clock hits 5am GMT, a new period of server downtime will begin lasting approximately four hours. Needless to say, the server downtime launches alongside update 15.00, which must be downloaded in order to start playing the new season. "Status: Galactus defeated! Thanks for your efforts," reads a Fortnite tweet. "Fortnite is currently in a prep state for Chapter 2 - Season 5 (v15.00). Server downtime for the update begins December 2 at 12 AM ET (05:00 UTC) and is expected to run until approx. 4 AM ET (09:00 UTC). Stay tuned for updates." And the updates are already coming thick and fast, as Epic warns players to expect a bigger patch than usual, especially on PC and Nintendo Switch. "During this prep state, you'll be unable to play Fortnite prior to server downtime. Stay tuned for the adventures that await in Chapter 2 - Season 5!" reads a follow-up post. "Note: With the launch of the new Season, patch sizes will be larger than normal on Nintendo Switch and PC." Epic Games has also started posting teasers about the new content coming to Season 5. Judging by the teasers, update 15.0 will incorporate multiple realties. One transmission on Twitter mentions some kind of shapeshifter from another reality named Maeve. A second character by the name of Condor has also been teased by Epic Games. Expect more teasers throughout the night. While the patch notes are yet to be revealed, update 15.0 will include multiple map changes, a brand new Battle Pass, new weapons and a fresh batch of challenges. Epic Games will also launch the Fortnite Crew subscription service, complete with exclusive rewards. Priced at £9.99 a month, Fortnite Crew subscribers will always have access to the current Battle Pass. Subscribers will also receive exclusive rewards each month, beginning with the Galaxia skin and Cosmic Llamacorn Pickaxe. It'w worth pointing out that these rewards will only be available to subscribers, and won't ever be sold as standalone items in the shop. Fortnite Crew subscribers will also be given 1,000 V-bucks a month to spend on cosmetics. You can check out the Fortnite update 15.0 early patch notes below.
