What will be different about next-gen Fortnite?

Epic Games noted that they plan to support cross-play across “all platforms,” including current and next-generation ones. In a blog post detailing some of the features players can expect for next-generation Fortnite, they confirmed that the new hardware will allow the company to improve performance and visuals across the board.

Earlier this year, Epic Games announced that Unreal Engine 5 would be releasing in 2021, and with Fortnite being one of the biggest games for the company, it too would be migrating to Unreal Engine 5.
