If you play the Battle Royale hit Fortnite on the Nintendo Switch, you can be happy, because Epic Games has diligently optimized in technical terms and is now delivering a corresponding update.
The Switch is certainly not considered to be one of the most powerful consoles and if you play multiplatform games on the Nintendo console, you will certainly have to make some compromises compared to the other representatives. It was the same with Fortnite, but now there is something to be happy about.
So today Epic Games started to release a fresh update for the Switch version of Fortnite, which should noticeably improve the gaming experience on the platform. Accordingly, the renderer on the switch has been upgraded so that it can make better use of the GPU.
As a result, Fortnite now shines in both handheld and docking mode on the Switch in a higher resolution and delivers less blurry images – without this at the expense of performance. Rather, Epic Games also promises a more constant frame rate and therefore a smoother gaming experience.
What does that mean in concrete terms in terms of dissolution? Fortnite still uses a dynamic resolution on the switch to ensure the constant frame rate. However, there will be fewer changes between individual resolutions in the future and this will be significantly higher overall. In handheld mode, the game was displayed in an average of 1000×560, now it is 1170×660 pixels. The resolution increases from 1390×780 to 1560×880 pixels in docking mode.
And last but not least, the whole thing is achieved in such a way that you have to use 140 MB less storage space on the Switch with Fortnite after the update.
