Not too long ago, the developer Epic Games put out an official “State of Development” post for the global gaming phenomenon Fortnite in order to keep fans abreast of the changes coming to the multiplayer sandbox survival shooter down the line. For instance, one future update will include input-based matchmaking, and later this year, fans will have the ability to completely remap controller buttons. In addition to these, the game will also be receiving PS4 Pro improvements at some point as well.
According to Epic Games, Fortnite players on PlayStation 4 Pro will eventually receive support that offers resolution greater than 1080p when the enhanced Sony console is connected to a 4K-capable TV. Unfortunately, though, the video game developer didn’t provide an exact date as to when PS4 Pro owners should expect this feature to come into effect. Nevertheless, the update could come quite soon, as Epic did say it’s set to arrive “in the near future”.
As many Fortnite fans will likely agree, the game already performs quite well across its myriad platforms – save for Android, which is currently going through a beta period at the moment. What’s more is that Epic showed greater attention to Fortnite‘s fidelity by adding a 60 FPS mode to the free-to-play Battle Royale portion of the title several months ago, much to the delight of players on console. So, enhancing the game’s visuals on PS4 Pro should provide owners of the console with an even more stellar step up in terms of graphical performance.
Bearing this in mind, Epic Games’ decision to enhance Fortnite for the PS4 Pro crowd is yet another example of the studio’s dedication to the smash success, as it shows that the developer wants the title to shine as much as possible across the various systems that support it. After all, with more than 125 million players, there’s no doubt Epic wants to ensure that the game keeps running as finely as it can in order to continue pleasing Fortnite‘s current fan base and grow its audience even more so.
Fortnite is available now in early access on iOS, Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with an Android beta currently underway.
