At “Fortnite” a few changes are made. The consoles, for example, have a mode in mind, which also runs the title on the standard versions of the hardware with 60 FPS.
Epic Games has announced that the console version of “Fortnite” will be equipped with a mode that runs the game beyond the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X with 60 FPS. This means that you can enjoy the increased frame rate in addition to the standard models of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The official wording reads: “We plan to add an optional 60 FPS mode for Battle Royale later this month on all consoles (PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X). Mode is optimized for each console to optimize frame rate with minimal loss of graphics quality, “said Epic Games.
The description sounds as if Epic Games is using a dynamic resolution solution on all consoles that latches the frame rate at 60 fps while keeping the graphics at least mostly at their usual level. In addition, Epic Games wants to take care of the loading times. The developer talks about “tests and bug fixing enhancements that provide better level streaming with less disruption.”
In addition, Epic Games emphasized that it was “close” to the point where you could test a significant optimization of the network code, which would bring the developer closer to the possibility of “server with a solid 20 Hz” run. “Fortnite” is available for PS4, Xbox One and PC. The game was developed by Epic Games based on the Unreal Engine 4.
