Fortnite Season 5 new locations, biomes and map changes

Lazy Links, Paradise Palms and more changes to Fortnite's map for Season 5.

Fortnite Season 5 is here, along with a host of map changes and a brand new desert biome to explore while you attempt to be the last standing. Among the new locations are a golf course and a quaint backwater desert town. Here's how the Fortnite Season 5 map has changed and where to drop for the most fun for the next few months.

Down in the South-East of the map, where Moisty Mire used to be, is a new desert biome featuring a named town called Paradise Palms. The town itself is surrounded by large hoodoo stacks and hills, as well as some dinosaur-themed attractions. The old Moisty Mires racetrack is still around, but with a bit of a makeover, so you'll get plenty of use out of those brand new All Terrain Karts (ATK) if you want to relax while waiting for the storm to close in.

Speaking of that suspiciously golf-kart-looking ATK, there's now a golf course in Fortnite. Right up at the tippy top of the map in the North is Lazy Links, replacing the barns and farmyards of Anarchy Acres (which was a bit redundant as a themed area given that Fatal Fields also exists in the South). The Links offer you a few bunkers, greens and fairways to duel in, as well as a clubhouse and some auxillary buildings to loot.

The massive crater left behind by Season 4's meteor impact has now contiuned to be filled in by vegetation and is now almost completely covered in trees. There's an extra base building constructed outside of the crater now, too, where scientists can keep track of this alarmingly fast growth. For all those changes and more, how about you check out the full map below:
