You may have noticed over the weekend that Fortnite Battle Royale Chapter 4 went live across all current Xbox platforms, although the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S were treated to an absolutely awesome feature in particular.
As of this update, Fortnite now makes use of various Unreal Engine 5.1 features including Nanite, Lumen, Virtual Shadow Maps, and Temporal Super Resolution, which now means it looks seriously stunning on Xbox Series X|S.
Here are some examples of what we’re talking about:
Lots of Xbox owners have been taking to social media over the past 24 hours to show off how good the game looks now on the two consoles, and Digital Foundry’s John Linnemann has also expressed how impressed he’s been with it:
If you want to check out these graphical improvements on your Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S, all you need to do is make sure you’re not playing at 120FPS — just drop the frame rate to 60FPS to see all the Unreal Engine 5.1 benefits.
Don’t forget that Fortnite Battle Royale is completely free to download, with the Chapter 4 update featuring a new island, the ability to ride a dirt bike, new boosts called Reality Augments, various new weapons and a whole lot more.
