The new season's graphics are noticeably improved on the new map.

Agreed! I'm impressed with the visual fidelity of Fortnite. It sure is one polished title!

Eonjay356d ago

Can anyone verify if this is exclusive to current gen or also available of Xbox One and PS4?

Waste of the technology, using it for such a cartoony game.

Can't wait to see it used as intended someday.

thesoftware730357d ago

So Epic builds a great engine, uses it on their biggest game and somehow it's a waste of the tech?

So much nonsense in. your comment it's a shame

I think the meme of hating on Fortnite was lost in translation and now people hate it for reals. Plus cartoony games are perfect for engine showcases. We've been pushing for Pixar and we're finally there

Fortnite is trash.And so are its diehard fans.

I'm pretty much over Fortnite... wish the had expanded with Save the World. That was worth the time invested until they stopped curating it.
That said, you cannot deny that Fortnite is impressive for what it is. Epic has done a good job working this title.

Well, this take is about what should be expected from testicles.

The Matrix Awakens new "Unreal Engine 5 Experience" releases in just over an hour for PS5 and Series X. No PC release though, which I think is strange. It says it will showcase the power of the new hardware, along with Unreal Engine 5.

Odd, im on ps5 and it says 11 hours and 34 minutes

Well Epic needs a game to demonstrate it in real life. Why not their most famous one to show investors and developers? It shows that they stand behind it.

Why does this need to be explained anyway?

It's Epic's flagship game, it should be the first one to get that upgrade

Magog357d ago

It's just an extension and improvement on UE4. I doubt Fortnite is using all the new features.

SDuck356d ago

Even so, it now has access to them

franwex356d ago

Just how UE4 was from UE3.
