Fortnite will support two kinds of adaptive trigger feedback for ranged weapons: trigger pull feedback and sustained feedback. Weapons that fire once per trigger pull — your Pistols, SMGs, Snipers, Assault Rifles, etc. — will use trigger pull feedback, meaning you’ll feel the authentic resistance of pulling their triggers as you push down the trigger of the DualSense.

Weapons that require you to hold down the trigger button — like the Boom Bow and the Minigun — will make use of sustained feedback. Even as you’re holding the DualSense trigger all the way down, you’ll still feel an authentic sensation of resistance, reminiscent of what it feels like to draw back a bow or keep a Minigun firing.

  • Working with the console’s custom RDNA 2 GPU, we’ve made the next-gen version of Fortnite output at 4K and up to 60 FPS in all game modes on PS5.

  • The Zen 2 CPU + expanded memory let us use dynamic visuals and physics to bring even more life to the Fortnite Island. Grass and trees respond to explosions, visual effects for smoke and liquid are enhanced, and there are new effects for clouds and the Storm.

  • Our work with PS5’s ultra-high speed SSD has let us dramatically upgrade loading performance, improving texture loading and letting you get into matches much faster.

  • Split Screen can be played with higher performance: up to 60 FPS! This is due to our work with the improved CPU, GPU, and memory.

Awesome game and it looks gorgeous. Excited to try this version out, the controller stuff sounds really cool.

I got it at 4k60 on my PC but a few settings are a bit lower.

Wondering how the PS5 version stacks up next to it. Will be a fun alternative to play now and then.

I assume this update will be available at launch, right? That’s the gist I’m getting.

but like with destiny, without a direct answer you just never know.

Quite a bit better, actually. It seems to be a genuine next-gen redo of the game. Of course, I’m sure that the PC version will get the same soon, if not at the exact same time.

Can't fuckin wait to stomp some kids on Thursday

Here is some gameplay footage of Fortnite running on PS5. Looks pretty good.
Hard to watch because the player is such a fuckin retard. Why wouldn't you shield up at ANY point in the 12 minutes you had shields?
