Fortnite: Graphic and visual improvements planned for PC

Fortnite: Graphic and visual improvements planned for PC

While the Unreal Engine 5 is finally available in open beta for developers, Epic Games' flagship game will benefit from a slight rework. On the occasion of the arrival of season 7, and therefore patch 17.00, various graphic and visual improvements are planned for Fortnite. These modifications are only effective on PC, and come to refine and rework the effects to make them more authentic.

What graphical improvements are planned?

Among the graphic and visual improvements planned for Fortnite, we find in particular an improved post-processing, an increased shadow quality or even an overall improved quality. Clouds and storm in Battle Royale and Creative modes are also refined to look more realistic. In addition, the various blurs, flares or explosions are entitled to a marked improvement.



This will obviously upset the graphics options, which move according to the modifications. Setting High of patch 17.00 is therefore the equivalent of the previous quality Epic. The settings Medium, Low et Performance mode however, remain unchanged during the update.
