    Patch v5.0 has given us a whole lot of new Battle Royale content. Here's what we've been able to find so far.

    1. Some pretty significant cosmetic changes were made to the map...

    5. Oh, and Dusty Divot is now loaded with trees — jump rocks are gone, shield shrooms are numerous.

    6. Moisty Mire, the prison, Anarchy Acres, and the soccer pitch are all GONE.

    7. THERE ARE NOW GOLF CARTS, and they can carry a whole team of four — you can't run people over though. Hitting players with them deals no damage.
