Less than a month before release, Epic Games has highlighted the graphical performance metric that players can expect to experience in Fortnite.
Speaking with Gaming Bolt in a recent interview, producer Zak Phelps revealed that the upcoming survival builder will feature support for 4K resolution on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X. However, the game will be capped at 30 frames per second on both the high-end console variants.
Without giving away any further details, Phelps stated that the development team “turned on several key PC pieces on Epic settings” for the consoles. This in turn makes Fortnite look absolutely lovely running on high resolution.
Coming over to the PC version of the game, it will dish out performance based on the capabilities of the hardware. In other words, Fortnite will have an uncapped frame-rate. Provided that the system is beefy enough, players will be able to play the game on PC at high resolutions and frame rate with all settings dialed to the maximum.
When asked whether or not Fortnite will arrive for the Switch, Phelps stated that the development team currently has no such plans. However, he agreed that bringing it over to the Switch would be a great move. Perhaps that will materialize at some point in the game’s life.
Fortnite will officially enter Early Access on July 25 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It is slated for a release next year and will adopt a free-to-play business model.
