Fortnite adds 120 FPS support for Xbox Series X|S and PS5, performance mode for PC

Today’s Fortnite update has added 120 FPS support to the game on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5.

Players on next-gen consoles can hop into the options and enable “120 FPS Mode” for Battle Royale and Creative. While using this option, the maximum resolution on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 is reduced to 1440p, and shadow settings, postprocessing, and streaming distances are also reduced. Epic Games notes that high-quality shaders, physical rim lighting, and volumetric clouds remain enabled in this mode.

While over on Xbox Series S, 120 FPS Mode still runs at 1080p, but volumetric clouds are disabled. This update also bumps the resolution of the game on Series S at 60 FPS up to 1200p in all game modes.

Additionally, today’s update introduces a performance mode for PC. This mode is available in Battle Royale and Creative and “offers significant performance gains by trading out visual quality to lower memory usage and lighten the load on CPU and GPU.”

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