Epic Games’ Fortnite To Run At 4K/30fps On Xbox One X And PS4 Pro, No Plans For Switch

Executive producer Zak Phelps discusses Fortnite’s graphics settings.

Posted By | On 03rd, Jul. 2017 Under News


It’s been a long time coming but Epic Games’ Fortnite will sort of release this month. The “Minecraft meets Left4Dead” title will be going into early access and players can buy their way in. This will be the case on PC as well as Xbox One and PS4 – next year, Fortnite will be free to play.

What about the Nintendo Switch though? Does Epic Games have plans to release Fortnite on Nintendo’s console? GamingBolt spoke to executive producer Zak Phelps about it and he said, “That’s a great question. That would be amazing, right? Nothing on that officially.”

As for how the game would run on Xbox One X and PS4 Pro, Phelps noted “Resolution and frame rate is all dependent on your PC and what you can run. PS4 Pro, Xbox X, it’s going to look really good in 4K. We’re going to allow the resolutions that we can support and frame rate at 30 frames per second.

“We’ve turned on several key PC pieces on epic settings. We’re able to run the game on Xbox, Xbox One X, and PS4 Pro.” Fortnite arrives in early access on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on July 25th so stay tuned for more details.

    • One With Shadows

      Count me as one of those 360 fanboys who jumped ship after MS’ debacle with the Bone. Best gaming decision I ever made.

    • Brian Tomczyk

      Well that was a good decision for you to make and I know millions more did that to I had the 360 and got the Xbox One but I read that it would be doing 1080p 30-60fps and didn’t really achieve that most games were 720p-900p 30-60fps I just got a PS4PRO I have 0 interest in the Xbox One X *I think Phil Spencer is an idiot to be honest he says checkerboarding is native 4k on the Xbox One X and the die hard Xbox fans think the same thing but when it comes to PS4PRO doing it of course its not native 4k : Xbox is a sinking ship and I’m with you I’m jumping the ship before it sinks Xbox fans will find their games on Playstation and Nintendo consoles in the future no doubt

    • Marquis

      Only has better software and exclusives, lol

  • Hvd

    can you stop including the ps4 crap pro upscale with the true native 4k xbox one x plz.

    you just make you self sound dumb.

    • Vulcanproject

      Stop including these 30FPS toys, PC is the lord and master 60FPS god of all gaming :p

    • Hvd

      have fun with your toxic pc community full of cheaters and cry babies..lmao.

      no thx.communities form worst to best pc>ps4>xbox.

    • Vulcanproject

      PC community is actually by far the best and most mature.

      Every platform has its crybabies but consoles are infested with whiny children more than any other.

      It’s pretty well accepted the average PC gamer has skills beyond average console gamers and the in depth knowledge of games and hardware that makes a good PC community beyond compare.

    • hvd hvd

      I bet u are 18-28 which is the age ofmostpc gamers
      The high school,collage age which is the reason esports has grown.

      Console gamers are 31-50 years old im 41 my self.hand held and mobile gamers are your under 18.
      You should learn the age groups of gaming.

    • Vulcanproject

      Wrong. The average age of a PC gamer was 38 in a wide reaching NPD survey several years ago.

      Yes you should learn age ranges.

      PC gamers tend to be older and more affluent.

    • hvd hvd

      Like i saud 18yr old high school cry babiez….lmao

    • Hvd

      here is the link to prove you wrong dont know what your bias survey is.

      https://venturebeat.com/2014/04/29/gaming-advocacy-group-the-average-gamer-is-31-and-most-play-on-a-console/

    • Vulcanproject

      That link proved absolutely nothing relevant to this discussion and says absolutely nothing about the distinct ages of various games platforms.

      But at least you tried.

    • hvd hvd

      Why because it showed you were wrong?….lmao

      When you only shared your opinion with no facts to back it up?….lol

    • Vulcanproject

      No because it doesn’t say anything about the age of PC gamers specifically.

      One assumes you can actually read and you would have noticed this small problem.

    • Hvd

      it didnt need to say the age of pc gamers its not that hard to figure out…lolif the havrage age of console gamers are 3o and up any one with a brain could figure out the rest but thats not you..lol

      so sad.

    • Vulcanproject

      If you claim that PC gamers are age 18-28 and then link to a study that showed the average age of a gamer is 31, what exactly do you think it tells us?

      Apart from the obvious fact you clearly don’t know what you re talking about.

    • Marty8370

      US is not the only country that games on planet earth you do know right…………….LOL

    • Vulcanproject

      While your statement is obvious it is a fact that it is the single largest gaming market and thus going to be quite well representative.

    • Marty8370

      I’m a 47 year old console gamer. Will be gaming wau past 50, so why put a age limit om something you enjoy

    • Hvd

      you just helped me prove my point most consoles are older 31 and up as i said and the survey said.are you sure you want to take the side of some one who said most pc gamers are 30 and older and mature?when i proved him wrong.

      are you sure you want to take that side of some one that is so blindly wrong they have no clue howe to handle it when proven wrong?

      if you take that side then i got no time for you.

      About real native 4k on xbox on x vs fake upscaled ps4 crap pro???

    • Bilal Prince-Ali

      real Native 4K like Anthem and Assassin’s Creed…? LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

    • hvd hvd

      About fake upscaled ps4 crap pro being in the same league as the real true native 4k xbox one x…yep

      The ps4 crap pro is nothing more then crap…lol

  • hvd hvd

    Sonyis a crap company and does nothing but lie.

    • Gary

      So Microsoft, the biggest patent troll of the past, the company that destroyed Nokia, and pretty much abandoned support for all of it’s mobile users are much better? Where are the promised Japanese games from Phil Spencer? Think before u comment.

  • Giselle Brady

    LMAO! More 30fps
    60.4 million – PS4
    28 million – Xbox One

  • Edonus

    I see Gamingbolt is on their Bias Gaming Media(BGM) propaganda push to make it sound like the Ps4Pro and Xbox One X are doing the same things……. The dev never stated what the resolution of the games will be. He just said they will use what they have to get where they can.

    Have you no shame.

    GB has another article doing he samething.

    • Fweds

      Yer best to ignore these sort if headline’s, wait for digital Foundry’s side by side comparison’s and watch the Xbox1X destroy the PS Protato in every way.

  • Mr Xrat

    That monster really is showing its worth. That’s $499 plus tax please.

    • Fweds

      Sorry what are you talking about ? The Xbox1X is doing native 4k already and it’s not even out yet, but the PS Protato that actually costs far more than Xbox1X when you think of the lack of features can only churn out fake 4k despite being out a year.

      Do you stay awake constantly staring at the screen so you can try and first post your constant negative FUD about Xbox1X. ?

    • HAppY_KrAToS

      Just because you love your XbotoX and hate sony, won’t change the fact that there are over 60 million of happy gamers playing hundreds of different games and genres, on their ps4, while the xbotox, is non-existent in japan, and in europe, stores still have the same piles of unsold xbox1 boxes, as nobody cares about it (excepting a few guys from uk, who bought it for the tivitivi vcr kinekt amazing features).

      The 20 million x1 units sold, 50% are from US, mainly purchased by the patriotic dudes who will buy everything with an eagle or 50 states flag on it, even if it’s a stinky horse turd, hey, it’s a national product, so let’s buy it, and the remaining 50%, were bought by the diehard former xbox/microsoft fans, to whom, still today, the x1 is much better, more powerful, etc, thanks to the 2nd hidden gpu, the amazing dx12 integration, the fabulous gpu overclock, the fantastic extra power from kinekt removal, the light-speed Live servers, the 44+ upgrades controller, etc etc… the same guys that swear to God they can’t see absolutely no difference between the 1080p ps4 version and the fantastic 720p x1 version. The same guys that spent 95% of their time playing forza,gears, halo and cod, on x360, and are spending 100% of their time, today, on forza, cod, destiny and overwatch: no need for more titles or genres, those 4 titles is all they need, for the next 15 years.

      Those same guys, like you,
      Still and already believe the x1x will run games at perfect native 4k, all at 60fps, with uncompressed textures, and pixar-like visuals and effects, with a final perfect shadows, light and MSAA16x processing!

      No!

      6 tflops will allow the x1x to have visuals slightly crispier than on ps4 pro…maybe by 10 or 20%… but those ridiculous 6tflops, compared to the 4.2 on ps4 pro, won’t be enought to double the fps.

      Destiny 2, along almost 99% of the third party announced titles, will be 4k checkerboard and 30 fps on BOTH ps4 pro AND x1x.
      Deal with it.

      Now, a question for you and the xbox fans..

      A few years ago, you guys weren’t able to see ANY difference between a ps4 1080p version, and the x1 720p version. They both looked the same.

      And now, that the x1x will use checkerboard techniques as well, to reach the 4k, will use compressed assets, will use the same amounts of polygons, the same exact everything, AS ON THE PS4 PRO,

      Now, you guys, suddenly, you are going to claim that you can EASILY see a huuuuuuge difference in visuals quality between both versions ! (But weren’t able to see a difference between a 1080p and 720p image !).

      I just wonder, what is the pro-xbox/microsoft US PRESS going to use, to justify telling the gamers to RUN AND PICK an x1x, now that there is no kinekt 2, no voice commands, no hidden gpus, no overclocked cpus, no new amazing controller, no dx12 boost, no special dev team, no amazing $299 low price tag, etc etc etc…

      how is polygon, ign, eurogamer, gamespot, and all the major pro-xbox websites, going to give it a 10/10 score, and ask gamers ‘hey, those 6tflops are amazing, games look 5 times better than on ps4 pro, please grun and go buy one !’ ?

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      It’s is right and it’s not even out the gate yet.
      I do agree with you that it’s been shaming the ps4 pro, and showing it’s true value over it.
      Just the performance of games like anthem and ark. It can’t be matched with a ps4 pro.

      I do agree with you that the ps4 isn’t capable of competing with the Xbox 1x but it’s still a decent value if you can buy a ps4 pro for under 300 bucks. That would make it worth buying if it’s around 250,but then again you may as well stick to an og ps4 which can be found for practically nothing now.

  • Gary

    Ps4 pro and Xbox One X are same level consoles. Both only capable of 4K at 30fps. Hope I don’t trigger any Xbots saying that.

  • Fweds

    You do know that MS and Sony often use PC to the same specs as their consoles to demo new console titles right ?.

    What Sony have just done by putting a photoshopped PS4 overlay and using Xbox1X Anthem footage is totally different.
