Fortnite : you can now play the Battle Royale at 120 fps on PS5 and Xbox Series X | S

Epic released an update to improve game performance on next-gen consoles

Fortnite arrived on PlayStation 5 , Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S since the premiere of the next generation systems; However, the Battle Royale did not take full advantage of all the capabilities of the consoles.

Fortunately, this changed recently, as Epic Games worked on a special update to make their popular game run better than ever on these systems. Thanks to this, owners of a PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S can now enjoy the Battle Royale at 120 fps.


If you have a next-generation console and a suitable screen, you should know that it is very easy to start playing Battle Royale with 120 frames per second. To do this, you must first download update 15.10 of the game, which adds the 120 fps mode.

Later, you have to go to the game’s video settings, where you can activate the new option. Epic Games had to make some adjustments to the title in order for it to be able to run at said frame rate per second.

Thus, the title will not be able to run at 4K on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X if it has 120 fps Mode activated, as it will remain at constant 1440p. On the other hand, the shadows and distances were reduced slightly to obtain the high frame rate.

The company assured that, despite the adjustments, the volumetric clouds, the contour lighting and the high-quality shaders will remain active at all times. On the other hand, Xbox Series S users will be able to play at 120 fps and 1080p.

Epic Games also announced that, on Xbox Series S, it increased the maximum resolution from 1080p to 1200p in all modes. Gamers will be able to take advantage of this optimization as long as they have the 120fps Mode disabled.

“In Xbox Series S 120 fps Mode, shadow resolution and other settings are lowered and volumetric clouds are disabled,” the company added.

Fortnite is available for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PC, and mobile.
