Team SoloMid are taking another significant step towards becoming one of the top competitive teams in Fortnite, as they plan to relocate the entire roster for better practice.

The popular organization have made massive improvements on the competitive scene after a slow start to life in tournaments. To continue their rise, TSM president Leena Xu confirmed on Twitter that their professional team would be moving into a house together on the East Coast.

With the majority of the top Fortnite professionals currently residing in the region, TSM players will be able to get the best possible practice ahead of the $30m Fortnite World Cup tournament.

Despite having some of the most popular streamers under their belt, the likes of Daequan Loco and Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin were disinterested in the way the game played out amongst top pros.

As a result, TSM completely revamped their pro team, signing one of the top duos in the game in Zexrow and Vinny1x, as well as upcoming players such as Cloud and Kaysid to join Myth on the competitive roster.

The tweet suggests that all five members will be moving into the house which is not yet confirmed to be a permanent move for the likes of Myth who currently lives in California.

With TSM recently dropping Cowboy due to out of game controversy, there appears to be a gap that needs filling to create three duo teams in the pro house meaning another signing could be imminent.

Nevertheless, bringing all of their pro players together should provide a boost to their chances of splitting the largest prize pool in the history of esports.

The Fortnite World Cup qualifiers kicks off on April 13 and will run until June 13 with the grand finals taking place in New York.

Fortnite Season 5 is upon us, and it’s got some very exciting things in store – but the one thing fans are most looking forward to is the leaked crossover with The Mandalorian.

Following the success of Season 4’s Nexus War, which introduced skins and weapons based on some of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and villains including Storm and Venom, Fortnite seems to be once again teaming up with another Disney-owned franchise, Star Wars.

Recent posts from a number of leakers including ShiinaBR and others have suggested a crossover with The Mandalorian is imminent, with bounty hunter Din Djarin and the adorable viral sensation Baby Yoda both being a part of the major Season 5 update.

There’s even been a leaked advertisement for the Battle Pass, which shows off the incoming Mandalorian skin accompanied by a little Baby Yoda, which is presumed to be another Back Bling cosmetic like Rocket Racoon, from Guardians of the Galaxy.

We won’t know exactly how to unlock the new Mandalorian secret skin and accompanying Baby Yoda Back Bling cosmetic until Season 5 drops on December 2, but we can definitely speculate.

In previous seasons, featured skins have been unlocked when players complete Battle Pass challenges. It’s likely that The Mandalorian skin will be acquired through a similar unlock method. It will look something like this:

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Head into the Battle Pass menu.
  3. Access the Battle Pass challenges screen, and wait for the relevant challenges to appear.
  4. Once they’ve been made available, it’s down to you to complete them.

We’ll update this page as soon as we know how to unlock these new cosmetics, so keep an eye out.

When does Fortnite Season 5 start?

Fortnite has a lot to live up to after Season 4. It saw the introduction of a number of Marvel heroes as well as the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus, for an epic Nexus War finale event.

Season 5 will kick off on December 2, although an exact time hasn’t been confirmed. It’s also been hinted by dataminers that there will be another Black Hole style blackout to bridge the gap between the end of Season 4 and the beginning of Season 5.

It’s not expected that the whole season will be themed around The Mandalorian, unlike the previous Marvel-focused Season 4, but it looks like it will likely feature enough Star Wars content to keep fans of the galaxy far, far away happy.

Season 5 also brings with it the arrival of the new Fortnite Crew membership, which includes the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins, and other monthly benefits for a set price.
