Every Fortnite Season 5 new location and map change

Fortnite Season 5 has arrived, and as with any new season, there have been plenty of map changes. From brand-new locations to the return of some classics, here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite’s upgraded island.

With the battle against Galactus now firmly in the rear-view mirror, it’s time to focus on Season 5, and the battle to save the island. The Zero Point at the heart of the island is unstable, and Jonesy and his team of hunters are desperate to save the reality we all know and love.

The Zero Point has clearly caused some issues after being drawn out of the ground by Galactus, and it appears that it’s started to warp multiple realities together, with some new locations springing up, and some classics returning — just not as we remember them.

You can take a look at the new Fortnite Season 5 map below.

Salty Towers

Tilted Towers is back! Well, not exactly. The last time we saw Tilted Towers, it was being covered in molten lava during Season 8, but thanks to Zero Point, it makes its triumphant return.

It’s not exactly the Tilted Towers you remember though, as it has been through an odd merged with Salty Springs, combing the two to make a new version of both locations, although it still feels familiar once you’re inside it.

Stealthy Stronghold

Pleasant Park has a new neighbour, as a massive walled section forest has appeared directly north of the town.

There doesn’t seem to be too much inside it right now, with just trees and a few small buildings, but we may see some construction there as the season goes on.

Zero Point

One of the easiest new locations to spot is the new home of the Zero Point, which is floating high in the sky in the middle of the island.

The area around it has been covered in sand, and some strange spikes are sticking out of the ground.

Colossal Coliseum

Located just West of the Zero Point is the new Colossal Coliseum. A grand structure designed for combatants to do battle, there’s sure to be plenty of fights taking place here in Season 5.
