Here's what we know about Fortnite on the Xbox Series X.

During the Summer Games Fest, Epic Games confirmed that Fortnite will be coming to the next generation of consoles.

Slated for release towards the end of 2020, the PS5 and the Xbox Series X consoles will battle it out for console supremacy with both consoles boasting several new and innovative features.

As for Fortnite on the Xbox Series X, we take a look at when the game will appear on the new console, how good the graphics are going to be and everything we know so far about the popular battle royale arriving on the next generation of PlayStation.

Release Date

Although nothing official has been confirmed regarding a release date for Fortnite on the Xbox Series, it is widely expected that the game will be available to download when the console is released, perfect for those looking to get straight into the action.

Graphics and FPS

The new graphical capabilities of the Xbox Series enables games to run at a much higher frame rate than its predecessor.

With the ability to run software at 4K and 120 frames per second (FPS) Fortnite on the Xbox Series X is likely to be one of the smoothest games thanks to the new specifications of the console.

Epic has confirmed that Fortnite will release using Unreal Engine 4 – its current engine – before moving over to Unreal Engine 5 in the middle of 2021.

Ray Tracing has been confirmed for Fortnite on PC and with the capabilities being available for next-generation titles, we will likely see this transition to the Xbox Series X.

These ray-tracing features can be broken down into four categories:

  • Reflections: these make shiny surfaces such as glass, windows and other things reflect their surroundings more accurately rather than be filled with pre-baked images
  • Ambient Occlusion: this fills in objects with subtle and realistic shadows where their surfaces meet
  • Global Illumination: this will allow light to play more realistically across the environment even as it changes
  • Shadows: simply put, the shadows will look better
