The Battle Royal shooter Fortnite can now be played on the new generation consoles of PS5 and Xbox Series X in 120 frames per second. However, if you activate the 120FPS mode, you will have to live with minor graphic compromises.
As the developers of Epic Games announced, a new update for the popular Battle Royal shooter Fortnite is now available under the version v15.10.
Players on the next-generation consoles in particular benefit from the newly released update. For example, the general resolution on the Xbox Series S has been increased from 1080p to 1200p, while the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 have been given a 120FPS mode, which enables a display in 120 frames per second. The 120FPS mode must be activated in the settings and is available in both battle royale and creative mode.
However, if you want to play Fortnite in 120FPS mode, you will have to live with smaller technical and graphical compromises. For example, the resolution in 120FPS mode on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X drops from 4K to 1440p. There are also minor adjustments to the graphical representation.
The settings for the shadows, post-processing and level streaming distance are slightly reduced, but volumetric clouds, physical edge lighting and high-quality shaders remain activated, as Epic Games explains.
Fortnite is available for all common platforms and can be played for free.
