Fortnite will add ray-tracing to its PC version later this week, Epic Games has announced.
An update, scheduled for 18 September here in Australia, will add support for ray-tracing alongside a custom map called “RTX Treasure Run,” referencing the Nvidia RTX GPUs that allow for the feature.
At present, players will need an Nvidia RTX 2060 or higher to make use of ray-tracing, through the feature will be possible through AMD’s next line of products. The Nvidia website currently details what Fortnite with ray-tracing will look like if you’re so inclined; otherwise, a video does the same below.
Fortnite is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Switch… and Epic is currently fighting both Apple and Google in regards to the game’s iOS and Android versions. Next-gen equivalents (likely with ray-tracing too) are planned for Xbox Series S & X and PS5.
