Today at 10:00 SA time, the Fortnite servers went down in preparation for Season 5 to kick off, as worlds collided to bring one of the biggest updates yet to the game. Epic has been teasing some big things in the game, with that awesome rocket launch that cracked the sky, as well as objects disappearing in the game and reappearing in the real world.

Now, it’s finally time for Season 5 to kick off as server downtime has begun. Season 5 will, of course, come with a new Battle Pass to throw your money at. The Season 5 Battle Pass will set you back 950 V-Bucks and brings with it new weekly challenges, unlockables as well as instant access to some skins. If you purchased the Season 4 Battle Pass, you will also receive some extra Battle Stars to kick things off.
