Fortnite is already counting down to the arrival of Season 7 on June 8th. In addition to new objectives, skins and characters, the update will also bring graphical changes to the game in its PC version, with improvements in shadow effects and improved post-processing features.
According to Epic Games, the goal is to make the look of the PC version on the same level as the version for current consoles: Xbox Series S/X and PS5. With this, the graphic setting “High” will have the same graphics as the “Epic”, while the “Epic” will bring all the visual news, such as improvements in lighting, explosions, fire, shadows and much more.
This change will only be felt for those who have a PC with more current graphics cards, which is also good news for those who play with the minimum and medium visual resources, as they will not be changed. However, after the Season 7 update, Fortnite’s recommended requirements have changed, even though there is nothing to do with the graphical enhancement.
