Epic Games’ Fortnite comes to Xbox Series X/S and PS5 next week, sporting enhancements to take advantage of both consoles. It will launch on November 10th for Microsoft’s consoles and November 12th for PS5. Official details on next-gen improvements have been revealed and there’s quite a bit to take in.
The Xbox Series X and PS5 will both run the game at 4K/60 FPS and offers a more dynamic world with improved effects for storms, clouds, liquids and so on. They also benefit from improved texture loading and getting matches faster. Split-screen players will also be happy to note that it runs at 60 FPS on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
PS5 players can expect support for the DualSense’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers along with Activity integration. If you want to jump straight into Solos, Duos or Squads from the Home screen, then go for it. It’s worth noting that the game runs at 1080p/60 FPS on the Xbox Series S.
Of course, this is only the beginning for the free-to-play battle royale with a migration to Unreal Engine 5 planned for mid-2021. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
