60 FPS on Console (Battle Royale)
Experience Fortnite like never before. PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One and Xbox One X now support 60 FPS mode, hand-tuned for each console to provide an extra-smooth gaming experience while maintaining visual fidelity.
Fortnite Battle Royale is completely free to play and available on the PS4, Xbox One and PC. This mode is separate from the main Fortnite game although both share the similar update structure.
