‘Fortnite’ Update 1.67 (5.0) Adds Season 5, ATKs & New Map Patch Notes

Fortnite Season 5 has officially begun with the 5.0 update, also labeled as version 1.67 on PS4. The 4GB download offers tons of new content to explore, so let's get right to the patch notes. Highlights include a new vehicle called the ATK, a feature called Rifts and brand-new map locations.

'FORTNITE' 5.0 PATCH NOTES

General New Features

  • When the "Invited to Party" prompt appears in the UI you can now immediately accept the invite rather than having to open the Party Finder.
  • The News widget has been adjusted to avoid the need for a scrollbar in most cases.
    • A scroll option has been added for controller users in the event that scrolling is needed.
  • Updated consoles to use less shader storage. This improves patch sizes and reduces load times.
