Fortnite Will Offer 4K at 60 FPS On PS5

Day one updates.

With the launch of the PlayStation 5 on November 12th, we’re now starting to see plenty of news for PS4’s biggest games and how they will be supported on the new console. In terms of Fortnite, players can expect a whole heap of improvements to the experience, including true 4K at 60fps, from day one of the console.


Wait, Wasn’t Fortnite Already 60 FPS On PS4?

Yes, but it wasn’t exactly a stable 60 frames, was it? The game tends to chug right along during busier moments on console, especially when a lot’s going on at once.

It’s already important to note that the next-gen will herald the adoption of Unreal Engine 5, which may well signify an overhaul of how Fortnite generally plays. Fortnite will launch fairly similarly to how it is now with 2021 seeing a big change for the overall experience.

Epic will be making some changes from day one on PS5, though, including: “a more dynamic and interactive world with grass and trees responding to explosions, enhanced fluid simulations for smoke and liquid (cooler-looking smoke and liquid effects), and all-new Storm and cloud effects.”

The game will also be true 4K on PS5, not the checkerboarded solution of the PS4 Pro.

If you’re disappointed at not being able to run at 120 FPS on PS5, bear in mind that Epic will likely be working on making the game run even better down the line.


What About Split-Screen?

Well, good news on that front, too: Fortnite will also be available in 60 FPS via split-screen.

Fortnite is free-to-play on PC via the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Android.
