Update 15.00 is available for download for Fortnite. Epic Games installed the new patch as part of a downtime lasting several hours: Fortnite was offline this morning – the servers returned around 10 a.m. The update release also marked the start of Chapter 2 Season 5: The "Zero Point" season is now available. Epic Games did not present the patch notes for the new update 15.00. However, the developers share the highlights of the changes and innovations on their website.

"The zero point is unprotected, but nobody can escape the loop if you can prevent it," writes Epic Games for Season 5 in Fortnite. You join forces as Agent Jones and other hunters, including the Mandalorian, to take part in a battle that "will shape" the future of the island. With the new hunters, new places come into the loop. For example, you fight in the Colosseum, the jungle and the crystal desert. You also carry out missions and bounty hunts for the characters on the island – they can also be recruited as allies. On the other hand, if you challenge them to a duel, additional rewards await. (buy now € 16.20 )

The new characters only accept bars. You earn them by completing missions and bounty hunts, eliminations or finding secret supplies. You spend the bars on exotic weapons, upgrades and services. New weapons include the Dragon's Breath Shotgun, the Mandalorian's Amban Sniper Rifle, and the Night Robe. With the latter there is the possibility to pursue your goals closely. Epic Games confirms that more content will appear over the course of Fortnite Season 5. So far, new hunters and weapons have been confirmed. As usual, we will keep you up to date in our news area.

A new Battle Pass will also come into play with the start of Fortnite Season 5. Among other things, he unlocks Mancake, the fighting pancake, Mave, the shapeshifter, and the ultimate bounty hunter, the Mandalorian, with his companion Das Kind. With a single level up there are more goodies, rewards and items. The Battle Pass costs 950 V-Bucks. Those who take out a subscription with the Fortnite Crew receive the pass included. We have included videos for the new Fortnite season below.
