New changes introduced in Season 5
The Jungle Adventure theme of this season was revealed via a jigsaw puzzle on 13 July 2021. Further details were announced in a "Big Streamus" livestream on 19 July 2021, including the full fame pass, Squads Duos and Squads Trios and two new rounds, Treetop Tumble and Lily Leapers. Later that day, the patch notes got published which unveiled Limited Time Events and the remaining four rounds: Lost Temple, Bubble Trouble, Pegwin Pool Party and Stompin' Ground.
Fame totals for the fame path were tweaked to be slightly higher relative to Season 4 (Legacy).
Another update was released on 5 October 2021, with the game featuring a revamped user interface. Bots for new players were also quietly introduced; these bots would only appear if all other players in the lobby were new, and are programmed to always drop out before the Final. As a consequence, only certain rounds can be selected if bots are present in the game (and the same round can be selected multiple times in a show); this includes, but is not limited to, Door Dash, Gate Crash, Knight Fever, Perfect Match, Roll Out, and Ski Fall.
- The player no longer can rotate the camera and turn on/off player tags before the round starts. (It is still possible in round 1) This was confirmed to be a bug before being hot-fixed on 5 August 2021.
- In some Season 5 rounds, while introducing sound plays, the sound stops earlier. (It is still possible in round 1) This was confirmed to be a bug before being hot-fixed on 5 August 2021.
