If you haven’t managed to get your first win during Season 5 of Fortnite Battle Royale, you may not even be aware that Epic has completely redone the famous ‘Victory Royale’ screen and animation.

Getting a victory royale, whether its your first or your 100th, is the sweetest feeling in all of Fortnite, so making sure it feels appropriately rewarding and ‘epic’ is absolutely vital.

The old victory royale screen had remained unchanged since the game’s launch, and no one really had any major complaints about it – but that didn’t stop the developers from always looking for improvements.

The signature golden ‘#1’ stays as well as the text ‘victory royale’, so in terms of the actual screen image itself it isn’t that big a change. It’s the new slow motion animation added that makes all the difference.

Instead of the game instantly stopping as soon as the final elimination comes in, there is now an awesome slow-motion effect, really giving the winning moment some extra flair.

It certainly makes winning a game feel and look even better, and should be particularly special during the upcoming competitive tournaments which will be watched by millions.

OpTic Gaming’s Jack “CouRage” Dunlop managed to snag a win with his first game of Season 5, and was not expecting the dramatic new victory animation.

It’s another reminder of Epic Games incredible attention to detail, that even with all the big changes, including new map zones, a vehicle and lots of new skins, they are still looking to make small improvements.

It should also contribute to the overall longevity of the game, as keeping the game feeling fresh can come down to just the small things if players are playing for months and months on end – as many Fortnite fans have been.

Starting with Chapter 2 Season 5, Fortnite will have a brand new subscription service titled Fortnite Crew, which aims to bring a slew of different features that players love, wrapped up into one nice little package. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Season 4 of Fortnite is rapidly coming to an end. The Marvel-themed season has been around for a few months now and in December it will be replaced by Season 5. While we don’t know the full extent of the new season, we do know that it’s set to introduce a brand new service called Fortnite Crew.

This subscription-based model, which is a first for Fortnite, is set to introduce a brand new way to get the battle pass each season, while at the same time earning some free goodies to sink your teeth into. But how does it work, how much does it cost, and what does it include? Here’s the breakdown.

Fortnite Crew contents

The most attractive inclusion in this new subscription service is that of the battle pass. Each month, you’ll get the premium version of the battle pass at no extra cost to you, so long as you’re subscribed to Fortnite Crew.

Beyond that, however, you’ll also receive a number of different items beyond the premium battle pass. You’ll also receive 1000 v-bucks and an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, which in-and-of-itself includes a skin and a “matching accessory”.

Fortnite Crew cost

According to Epic, the Fortnite Crew subscription service will cost players $11.99 a month. This price makes the service an objectively good deal, as a normal battle pass costs 950 V-bucks, which costs around $8.

So for a few extra bucks from the standard price of a battle pass, you’re getting 1000 extra V-bucks, an exclusive skin pack, and the battle pass itself.

How to subscribe to Fortnite Crew

Epic Games
Players will be able to purchase the Fortnite Crew subscription from the Item Shop when it launches in December.

Subscribing to Fortnite Crew is, apparently, quick and easy. All you have to do is click the icons found in the Fortnite Item Shop or on the battle pass screen, meaning it doesn’t seem like players will have to jump through a bunch of hoops in order to get access to the service.

In addition, Epic Games also confirmed that fans will be able to cancel their subscription at any time. Presumably, fans will be able to keep all of the items they unlocked through the service up until that point, considering they would have already paid for that month.
