Fortnite got a “performance and resolution boost” on the Switch yesterday, Epic develops announced. The game should now look better, and the file size is also smaller.
Epic wrote: “The update provides significantly improved resolution in both handheld and docked mode, resulting in less blurry images.” Epic news post touts “a 38% increase in pixels in handheld mode,” which is a charming specific number of pixels. When I ran around the switch this morning (a task that was delayed due to how long it has been since I charged my switch, good lord), the texture pop-in felt less dramatic and distracting. A before-and-after screenshot in Epic’s post shows that some treetops look a little more defined, which is nice touch given that the map is currently dotted with some very lovely autumn trees.
Epic also wrote that “Switch players will save approximately 140 MB of storage space with the new update.” It is good news for people like me who constantly play Tetris with their Switch storage space.
Fortnitelast season got its first Update yesterday too. Dinosaurs has been added to the types of wildlife you will see around Battle Royale Island, and can be tamed by throwing meat at them or by using the agile Hunter’s Cloak, which I have not yet created. When we talk about crafts, animal bones and mechanical parts – both important design components – are now found all over the world in addition to falling from killed animals or damaged vehicles. Crafting is a new addition Fortnite with Season 6, and I have definitely found it difficult to assemble the necessary parts. I hope this change makes my weapons lighter.
