Epic Games has announced that they are planning to add a 60 fps mode for Fortnite across all the available consoles for it. This means the game will now offer support for 60 FPS on the standard PS4 and Xbox One aside from the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.
Fortnite offers a battle royale mode in the same vein as PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds but it has been limited to 30 fps since it was initially made available. Considering the impact of the game and the growing amount of concurrent users, Epic is trying their best to improve it on consoles and the addition of 60 fps should be a nice surprise for those who have been playing it since the start.
Here is what Epic had to say for the 60 fps mode.
Later this month we plan to add an optional 60 FPS mode for Battle Royale on consoles (PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X). This 60 FPS mode is tuned for each console to maximize frame rate while minimizing loss of visual quality.
From the description, it sounds like Epic will employ a dynamic resolution solution here on all consoles that will keep the frame rate at 60 fps while the visuals will be mostly kept intact. In that case, the game might just work at 60 fps on the PS4 and Xbox One.
Fortnite is available now on the PS4, Xbox One and PC. The game was developed by Epic Games using their signature Unreal Engine 4.
