Fortnite Season 5 SKINS LEAKED: Update 5.0 skins leak by TwoEpicBuddies are coming to shop

Fortnite servers are down this morning with matchmaking temporarily offline as Epic Games goes about releasing the brand new 5.0 update for the game and the start of Season 5 - coming to PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and Mobile devices in a couple of hours.

The patch notes have also been released if you want a closer look at the changes, including the new features like the golf cart and rifts.

But as with every update, there's also a number of secrets hidden inside the game's code. And like before, the update has been datamined by users who have revealed a number of new items on their way to the game shop.

There are new upcoming cosmetics, including new skins, pickaxes, gliders, back bling and emotes. To be honest, there are LOADS, which is understandable as this is the start of a new season.

These new details were found by TwoEpicBuddies originally who posted the new items on Twitter. Although, for the time being, names and rarities for these items are currently unknown.

It's equally unclear when these new items could go live in the game, but it's likely going to be spread out over the next few days and possibly weeks, both as items you can obtain from the shop and those perhaps higher up the new Season 5 Battle Pass.

Take a look at the new cosmetics in the gallery below

This follows on from the release of the new Fortnite update as we mentioned eariler.

Here's a quick overview of the main features as outlined by the newest Fortnite Blog:

Viking ships, desert outposts, and ancient statues have appeared across the island. Hop in an All Terrain Kart (ATK) with your squad and uncover all-new mysteries and locations that await. 

Tell me, partner...do ya feel lucky? Test that luck with the new Flintlock weapon set while you Challenge the Horde in the Road Trip event, now available in Save the World.

New Season, new Battle Pass. 100 levels,  over 100 new rewards. Available in-game right now for 950 V-Bucks.

Generally speaking though, these are the two big headline features being touted by Epic Games:

All Terrain Kart (Battle Royale)
Powerslide into battle with the all-new All Terrain Kart (ATK)! Grab some friends and go for a ride.

Rifts (Battle Royale)
Test your courage and step through a Rift. You’re in for a wild ride.

As you might imagine, it's not all new features for both Fortnite Battle Royale and Fortnite Save the World players but also a number of bug fixes as with every week.

You can take a look at the patch notes, below:

Looking ahead to later today we might get our first set of weekly Battle Royale challenges for Season 5 Week 1.

The new challenges haven't been revealed yet, but should come later today. But in the meantime, it's worth taking in some of the key changes

Unlike the past seasons though, Epic Games have seen fit to make a number of key changes. Here's what they say:

"Starting in Season 5, progressive challenges will no longer be restricted to a single season. You can now complete progressive challenges at your own pace."

What that means: Going forward you won't have to get all Season 5 challenges completed within Season 5. Presumably, you'll still be able to complete these during Season 6.

"Progressive challenges are now completed by acquiring a fixed amount of XP and is no longer dependant on your season level."

What that means: This sounds like you level up your battle pass based on XP and not the amount of Battle Stars you acquire. We think, this will likely be confirmed/clarified later.

"Weekly challenges are now split into two sections, free and Battle Pass. The first 3 challenges will be available for free while the last 4 are only available if you own the Battle Pass. The threshold to unlock the weekly challenge reward will remain at 4."
