Epic adding DirectX 12 support to Fortnite

Epic Games has revealed that the next update for Fortnite will introduce support for Microsoft’s DirectX 12 API.

According to the developer, players who choose to switch from DirectX 11 to DirectX 12 “may experience a higher and steadier frame rate.”

“In the future, we plan on adding features to Fortnite that are made possible by DX12,” Epic added. “Allowing players to opt into DX12 before these features are added will give us valuable information in our development efforts and help us shake out any bugs.”

An exact release date for update 11.20 has not been shared, but it’s expected to arrive this week.
