Star Fortnite content creator SypherPK has revealed in a recent interview the changes that he would like to see implemented in the battle royale’s upcoming Season 5, which is set to launch sometime in December 2020. 

Even though it feels like Season 4 launched yesterday, S5 is already a little more than a month away, if everything goes according to plan. It’s only a matter of time before players start getting leaks and official teasers about what’s going to be included in the next iteration.

Currently, there’s next to no information about what’s coming, whether it be for the season’s theme, new features, etc. In anticipation of all the new content that’s on its way, SypherPK has revealed his short, albeit important, wish-list for the upcoming season.

SypherPK said that he would like to see more game-changing mechanics, like fishing, in Season 5.

In a recent interview, Sypher said that, while he would love “more unique items”, one of the main things he’d like to see in Season 5 is “game-changing” features similar to what we’ve seen before.

“In past Fortnite seasons, we’ve had implementations that really change up the game,” the superstar streamer said. “Like when they first introduced Reboot Vans, when they first introduced Siphon, fishing, vehicles, picking up players.

“These are all very memorable changes that really shook up the game of Fortnite and made it better. We haven’t really seen big, significant changes like that in a while.”

In addition, he also said that he wants to see a “revamped” competitive/ranked system in the game: “Arena, right now, feels like a glorified Pub with Siphon. It doesn’t really feel like a true ranked mode. I would like to see a true ranked mode in Fortnite.”

SypherPK also said that he would like see some changes to the Reboot system in the Ranked/Competitive mode.

One currently-existing system he would like to see tweaked is respawning, which involves players collecting their eliminated teammates’ cards and bringing them back to life via one of the many Reboot Vans located on the map.

“I’d like to see some sort of mechanic where, when you get eliminated and thirsted, you have a second chance of coming back,” he elaborated. “I’d like to see a revamp of the Reboot system; core-changing mechanics to really shake-up Fortnite. It’s been a while since we’ve have some significant changes to really alter the pace of the game.”

While it’s unknown what Epic has planned for Season 5, the developers have more than proved themselves to be capable of thinking outside of the box for Fortnite. Only time will tell, however, if this next installment satisfies SypherPK and the Fortnite player-base.

Fortnite Season 5 is finally upon us, meaning there’s a fresh Battle Pass to progress through. From exclusive skins to weapon wraps, emotes, and everything in between, here’s a rundown on what’s up for grabs.

Hot off the heels of a Marvel-centric season, we’re now jumping into something entirely new with Season 5. After a record-breaking in-game battle with Galactus, there’s a lot to digest with the new state of Fortnite.

Star Wars is front and center this time around as The Mandalorian headlines the Battle Pass. Not only that, bug figures from all sorts of unique backgrounds have joined the mix.

From what you can unlock to how much it’ll run you, and plenty more, here’s our full overview of Fortnite’s Season 5 Battle Pass.

How much is the Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass?

Drop into Season 5 with Mando thanks to the new Battle Pass.

No different from previous seasons, the Battle Pass has remained the same this time around. That means you’ve got two choices on how to progress through it. First of all, you can simply play the game for free and earn experience over the next few months. If this is the play for you, keep an eye out for guides on weekly challenges to boost your gains.

As another option, if you want to blitz right through the new Battle Pass, you can buy your way there instead. The base price will run you 950 V-Bucks, the equivalent of $10. However, you can also buy the first 25 tiers right out of the gate with a special 2,800 V-Buck bundle, roughly the equivalent of $25.

What’s included in the Season 5 Battle Pass?

Having leaked well ahead of time, we got an early idea of what’s on offer this time around. Front and center in the promotional material for this season is none other than Din Djarin and ‘The Child’ from The Mandalorian.

No different from how Aquaman headlined Season 3 and Marvel heroes and villains took over Season 4,  these Star Wars icons can be unlocked right at the beginning of the Season 5 Battle Pass.

You’ll be able to travel the map as the bounty hunter himself, while The Child accompanies close behind. Moreover, we already have an early look at six additional skins set to feature in the Battle Pass.

These are all completely unique designs. Some are simpler in their appearance, giving figures suits of armor. While others are completely wild, with powerful looking weapons and even anime-style visuals, a first for Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass tiers

There’s currently no telling what rewards will be featured in each and every tier. However, each of the new characters appear to have their own sets that fill out the Battle Pass. For instance, Mando has his own skin but also has a few other themed goodies to claim as well. All of the other characters follow suit.

As expected, Mando is the very first unlock in the Season 5 Battle Pass. With subsequent tiers providing Star Wars-themed extras including icons, loading screens, and more.

The Season 5 downtime is almost complete. We’ll be sure to update you with a look at every single Battle Pass reward as soon as we’re able to.
