1080P RESOLUTION AT 60 FPS ON SERIES S

Hop into any game mode and enjoy 1080P running at a smooth 60 FPS. The Xbox Series S will support most of the visual enhancements available on the Series X.

ENHANCED SPLIT SCREEN

On Xbox Series X|S, Split Screen now supports 60 FPS.

FORTNITE ON PLAYSTATION 5

The PlayStation 5 will be launching November 12 or November 19 depending on your territory. On PS5, Day 1 improvements to Fortnite include:

4K RESOLUTION AT 60 FPS

DYNAMIC VISUALS AND PHYSICS

DUALSENSE CONTROLLER IMMERSION

Haptic feedback makes it feel like you’re holding the Suppressed SMG or Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle. In addition to general vibration support, we’ve integrated haptic trigger feedback for ranged weapons on the new DualSense controller.

SELECT YOUR FAVORITE MODE FROM THE PS5 HOME SCREEN

Fortnite supports PS5’s Activities, starting with the ability to go straight into the Battle Royale Lobby with either Solo, Duos, or Squads selected. Once in the Lobby, choose to queue up for your selected mode!

GET INTO MATCHES FASTER

Loading performance has been significantly upgraded, not only improving texture loading but also helping you get into a match from game start-up much faster.

ENHANCED SPLIT SCREEN

On PS5, Split Screen now supports 60 FPS.

As you can see, the features are almost the same for both next-gen consoles, though the PS5 version has added haptic feedback features which are possible from the new DualSense controller.
