Season 5 of Fortnite: Battle Royale, with the slogan "Worlds Collide", started on July 12, 2018 and ended on September 27, 2018. It was originally supposed to end on September 24th, 2018 but Epic Games extended the end date to match with the 1 year anniversary of Fortnite being Free to Play. You can see a full list of all cosmetics released this season here.

This season's theme revolves around world collision, taking things from the real world to the Battle Royale Island.

How did it Start?

Season 5 continues the storyline that was started in Season 3.

The Crack in the Sky created by the Blast Off event caused the fabric of space-time to destabilize around the island, connecting the island directly to The In-Between, an extra-dimensional nexus hub that exists within The Zero Point. Only days before Season 5 began, rifts began forming around the island, sucking away objects from the island and bringing in new ones from other realities connected to the In-Between.

At the beginning of the season, entire locations from different realities were brought to the island through the rifts on the ground. Moisty Mire was replaced with a giant desert, along with a large resort town, an ancient town, scrapyard, and a cafe. The dirt racetrack to the east of Retail Row was revamped and upgraded to a full-scale concrete motorcourse track. Two more major changes occurred to the island. The farm Anarchy Acres was replaced with a luxury golf course called Lazy Links, and a large Viking Village was dropped on top of a mountain near Snobby Shores, complete with a large viking ship. Dusty Divot became overgrown with vegetation, and the research facility there started to fall apart, same with the Hero Mansion and Villain Lair. The Durr Burger head that was transported into the real world was, again, sucked through a rift and transported back to the island, and could be found on top of a hill near Pleasant Park. Around each of the affected areas, rifts could be found, which transported loopers high up into the sky when entered.

The Season 5 Storyline

Not that much activity happened throughout the first half of the Season. Risky Reels was fully repaired and the new Tilted Towers building finished construction, it was revealed to be a summer-themed sporting goods store.

The remains of the Dusty Depot warehouses were converted into a cafe called Dusty Diner. The damaged warehouse was converted into a museum, with a balcony where visitors could learn of the history of the comet and its impact

Around halfway through the season, The Enforcers arrived to the island through rifts, likely working for the Imagined Order to bring stability to reality before the rifts could change anything else on the island. They returned several objects that were rifted from the island during Season 4, including the Motel Sign and the Tomato Town Mascot. However, at Tomato Town, instead of bringing back the Mascot, the Enforcers brought back an ancient statue of the Tomato Mascot, likely by accident, and Tomato Town was completely annihilated and replaced with Tomato Temple not long after, likely coming from an alternate reality to the island which contained an ancient version of Tomato Town. This is further supported by the fact that the temple contained the Tomato mascot, indicating that the ancient reality was where the mascot was transported to at the end of Season 4. The Enforcers most likely worked for the Imagined Order, working to close up the rifts around the island before they bring any more changes to reality, and to bring order to everything. Nevertheless, the Enforcers' plan seemed to be working, and the space-time fabric around the island was slowly stabilizing. Rifts on the ground were closing up, and the Crack in the Sky was slowly shrinking. If the Imagined Order were indeed employing the Enforcers, then they would have likely manipulated The Zero Point (since it was in their possession in the vault) to close up the rifts around the island.

As the Crack in the Sky continued to rapidly close up, it suddenly turned purple and began producing odd sounds. Within the next few days, purple lightning bolts began shooting out of the crack, all targeting a hill near Paradise Palms, containing a large stone rock surrounded by a ring of cacti. Each lightning strike picked off one cacti one-by-one, until a larger lightning bolt destroyed the large rock. What happened next shook the storyline up even further.

The Arrival of the Cube and End of Season

The Crack Closure event occurred on 24th August 2018, with a gigantic lightning bolt striking out of the rift, lasting for around 10 seconds. When it was over, the Crack in the Sky was seemingly exhausted of energy and disintegrated in the sky, finally ending its reign over the island after an entire season. The closure event marked the beginning of the age of Kevin (nicknamed by the loopers), a giant, purple cube which was transported onto the island. It produced weird sounds and weird rune-like symbols occasionally flashed over its surface. It behaved with hostility towards players, shooting a powerful lightning bolt at them that would give them 30 damage and send them flying away. The Cube was revealed in Chapter 2: Season 7 to have possibly been a Last Reality creation, since their Mothership possessed thousands of them in a dedicated storage room. Whether the cube was controlled by The Last Reality during this stage is unknown, but the Cube began rolling once every 43 minutes, heading towards Fatal Fields. It passed to the north of it, and activated, imprinting a strange rune-like symbol in the ground, creating an anti-gravity dome surrounding the rune in the process. After 24 hours of printing the rune, the cube moved onwards, and resumed its cycle of rolling every 43 minutes.

The Cube continued to roll around the island, breaking everything in its way in the process. It printed seven runes around the island in a cube-like formation. After the final one was printed, the cube rolled into Tilted Towers and crushed the brand-new Sporting Goods Store that was just opened. The cube proceeded too head to Loot Lake, where it rolled into the water. What happened next is not entirely clear. The cube seemed to have dissolved in the water, spreading its matter across the entirety of the lake. This, however, does not really make sense, since the cube was revealed to have been intact and under the central Loot Lake island in Season 6. Therefore, it can be assumed that the Cube sank underneath lake, dispersing its energy across the surface of the lake and deactivating underneath the central Loot Lake island as seen in Operation: Sky Fire, where the cube deactivated and turned black.

Thus, The Cube left behind seven strange runes surrounded by anti-gravity domes, and a bouncy, purple lake, as Season 6 approached...
