Fortnite PS5 graphics have received a major upgrade with next-gen Unreal Engine 5 features as part of Fortnite Battle Royale Chapter 4. New features include Nanite, Lumen, Virtual Shadow Maps, and Temporal Super Resolution. Players will need to make sure that 120 frames-per-second Mode is disabled on their consoles to enjoy the aforementioned features.
Fortnite PS5 graphics update detailed
Epic Games has outlined each of the new features as follows:
- Nanite provides highly-detailed architectural geometry. Specifically, buildings are rendered from millions of polygons in real time, and each brick, stone, wood plank, and wall trim is modeled.
- Lumen reflections provide high-quality ray traced reflections on glossy materials and water.
- Virtual Shadow Maps allow for highly detailed shadowing. Each brick, leaf, and modeled detail will cast a shadow, and character self-shadowing is extremely accurate.
- Temporal Super Resolution is an upgrade over Temporal Anti-Aliasing in Fortnite, and allows for high-quality visuals at a high framerate.
With the exception of Temporal Super Resolution, none of the above features are currently available in creator-made islands or Save the World. Epic Games hasn’t said when and if they will be added to creator-made islands and Save the World.
