Fortnite 120 FPS support (PS5, Xbox Series X|S)

With the release of v15.10, we've added 120 FPS support in Battle Royale/Creative on both Xbox Series X|S and PS5! To play in 120 FPS, enter the Fortnite Video settings and toggle on "120 FPS Mode." Additionally, the max resolution on Xbox Series S at 60 FPS has been increased from 1080p to 1200p in all game modes.

PC Performance Mode

Smaller download. Better performance. Older PC specs have a new option for playing the game. Available in Alpha, Performance Mode is selectable through the in-game settings menu and offers significant performance gains by trading out visual quality to lower memory usage and lighten the load on CPU and GPU. For players already on low scalability settings or less powerful hardware, this mode will allow the game to run better than ever before and maintain a smoother framerate. With the launch of Performance Mode, players will also be able to opt-out of high-resolution textures through the Epic Games Launcher installation options page. This will remove around 14GB of high-resolution content for a final game size as low as 17GB with all optional components removed.
