What to Expect in Fortnite OG Chapter 4 Season 5
Update (Released on November 1)
We now have an official teaser for C4S5, revealing the name “Fortnite OG” for the season. It showcases a return to Tilted Towers and highlights the reappearance of classic weapons like the pump shotgun and hand cannon. Additionally, an official gameplay trailer is scheduled to be live on YouTube at 3:00 a.m. EST on Friday, November 3.
Leaks suggest that driftboards and the LMG will be added to the list of unvaulted items. New (old) skins such as Omegarok, Renegade Lynx, Spectra Knight, and Lil’ Split have also been revealed. Fortnite OG Chapter 4 Season 5 will take players back to the roots, specifically Chapter 1 Season 5 from 2018.
Leaked information about C4S5 suggests that the season will bring back the beloved OG Fortnite Chapter 1 Season 5 map, including Tilted Towers. However, the map is expected to evolve throughout the month-long season. Chapter 1 skins, weapons, and vehicles are also set to make a comeback. Some of the leaked skins include remixes of Peely, Ragnarok, and Team Leader. In addition, fans can anticipate the return of weapons like the original Assault Rifle (AR), turrets, and traps, as well as vehicles such as planes, ballers, and shopping carts.
Gameplay and New Modes
Although the new season pays homage to the original, gameplay mechanics will remain updated. Features like sprinting, mantling, and Zero Build will continue to be part of the experience. As for new modes, Chapter 4 Season 5 might not introduce any entirely new modes. However, rumors suggest that the Rocket League Racing mode will be making its debut shortly after the season’s launch, possibly waiting until the release of Chapter 5. We can expect Chapter 4 Season 5 to be relatively short, with the new chapter launching before the end of the year.
