Looks amazing on PS5! Huge leap in visuals. Can’t wait to see what other developers do with UE5 this generation.

I only buy Nintendo for their first party games. If I want to play 3rd party games it will be on PlayStation or Xbox.

Wow. This looks gorgeous. I never thought I’d say that about Fortnite.

FYI you have to disable 120 FPS on PS5 in order to see the upgrades… but it does look amazing and still runs at a solid 60fps

Looking this good while running at 60fps is a pretty big achievement. I wonder is the Matrix demo could hit 60fps in UE 5.1?

Not on PS5 or Series. A x.1 engine change doesn't magically more than double performance. Compared to Matrix, Fortnite has no NPCs and very few reflective surfaces, and that's just scratching the surface.

“Unreal Engine 5.1 Features Scalable Lumen To Achieve 60fps On Consoles, And More“

They’re pushing for 60fps on consoles with 5.1. Whether the matrix demo could achieve that is unknown but I think it’s possible.

The game looks amazing on both PS5 and XBOX Series X. Superb visual fidelity.
