There is a new "Desert" biome and two new locations, Paradise Palms and Lazy Links.

Now that Season 5 is underway, the Battle Star for the Week 1 challenges has been discovered with the hint coming via the loading screen that is unlocked following the completion of the necessary challenges. They are easy to spot once you're in their general area, and you collect them simply by holding the use button, as you would to open a chest.

You will also unlock the Battle Pass challenges, including the new Drift and Road Trip challenges, and five free tiers. These will take you "for a wild ride" if you dare step in, so maybe they'll act as some kind of teleportation portal.

The patch notes details a lot of tweaks that have been made to the game such as adjusted.shotgun spread patterns, heavy shotguns now firing 10 pellets instead of 5 along with bug fixes. Epic Games has also made it a bit more hard to "double pump" in season 5.
