Fortnite runs at 120 fps on PS5 and Xbox Series X


What a year it has been for the Battle Royal game, Fortnite. Not only did its parent company, Epic Games, did not win its lawsuit against Apple, but it also got itself kicked from Android’s Play Store.

When digital games, especially on mobile platforms, are seeing unprecedented growth, Epic Games sees the exact opposite. But all is not lost. We still have the game running wild on the next-gen consoles. And the company is not ready to give up just yet. By introducing avatars like the Mandalorian and Green Arrow(The Arrowverse version, not the Smallville one), Epic Games is doing its best to take the Battle Royal to its former glory.

For PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, Epic Games offers some exciting updates to Fortnite. The game can now be run at 120 frames per second on the next-gen consoles. That’s right, my friends; you can finally run the game on your PS5 at 120 fps.

The game already had 4k and 60 fps feature, but 120 fps is overkill and right. But don’t get excited so soon; turning on 120fps will cap the PS5 and Xbox Series X resolution at 1440p rather than the usual 4K while also reducing some graphical settings like shadows, post-processing, and streaming distances.

What’s the point of having 120 fps if I cannot run it in 4K using my 4K display. But it’s still an excellent choice to have the option, though. My advice, I still prefer the usual 4K with 60 fps, but i accept the 120 fps setting is really tempting.
