Believe it or not, Epic Games have seen it fit to release Fortnite on next-gen systems and today we’ve got the list of full upgrades and, perhaps surprisingly, there are significant updates coming to the rather popular Royale title. RIP Save The World.

  • Enhanced Split Screen —On Xbox Series X|S, Split Screen now supports 60 FPS.

Fortnite on PlayStation 5

The PlayStation 5 will be launching November 12 or November 19 depending on your territory. On PS5, Day 1 improvements to Fortnite include: 

  • 4K Resolution at 60 FPS — Experience Fortnite on PlayStation like never before on PlayStation5 with stunning 4K running at a smooth 60 FPS.
  • Dynamic Visuals and Physics — Experience 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.
  • DualSense Controller Immersion — Haptic feedback makes it feel like you’re holding the Suppressed SMG or Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle. In addition to general vibration support, we’ve integrated haptic trigger feedback for ranged weapons on the new DualSense controller.
  • Select Your Favorite Mode from the PS5 Home Screen — Fortnite supports PS5’s Activities, starting with the ability to go straight into the Battle Royale Lobby with either Solo, Duos, or Squads selected. Once in the Lobby, choose to queue up for your selected mode!
  • Get into Matches Faster —  Loading performance has been significantly upgraded, not only improving texture loading but also helping you get into a match from game start-up much faster.
  • Enhanced Split Screen — On PS5, Split Screen now supports 60 FPS.

Pick Up Your Progress

No matter what platforms you played Fortnite on previously (or plan to continue playing alongside your new consoles), crossplay remains available, and your progression and cosmetics carry over to the new platforms. On Xbox Series X|S, if you’ve transferred your Xbox profile from Xbox One, just download the Xbox Series X|S release of the game and get back into the action. On PlayStation 5, download Fortnite from the PlayStation Store and log in with your Epic account. If you played on PS4 previously but don’t have an Epic account, you can log in with your PlayStation Network account. 

Throwback Bonus

In the spirit of remembering the past while looking to the future, we’re offering all Fortnite players — on any platform — the free Throwback Axe Pickaxe. Starting November 4, this classic default Pickaxe from Fortnite Chapter 1 will be available through January 15, 2021 — for everyone both in-game and through the PlayStation Store.

So that’s your lot. Are you going to be landing into next-gen Fortnite in the next couple weeks? Let us know below.
