Epic Games have provided an update on its plans to bring an option to play Fortnite Mobile at 60 frames per second on high-end devices.

Currently, only specific iOS devices have the option to upgrade to 60 FPS, but the company is working on Android optimizations with phone manufacturers that they hope will bring higher frame rates.

In a quick update released on December 3, Epic Games gave their AndroidOS players a much sought after announcement that 60 FPS was on the way.

Epic GamesEpic Games wants to give a smoother gaming experience to Fortnite players on Android.

Epic Games recently launched the feature to the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR with optimization to the iPad Pro due in an upcoming patch.

The Fortnite Team is working to create a fluid experience with these kinds of updates, so as to make the change an improvement rather than a hindrance.

“We’ve gone through extensive tests to make sure the game can maintain such high frame-rates for a number of matches without overheating or deteriorating the overall experience over the course of a match,” the Fortnite Team said. “High frame rates are great, but if it’s only for a few minutes it doesn’t make a lot of sense.”

Epic GamesMore players will be dropping in glorious 60 FPS in a future Android update.

Android users can expect to have these updates on new flagships, as the company only described “certain high-end Android devices” will get the feature.

The company noted that playing in 60 FPS will drain phone batteries quicker, so the default setting will stay at 30 FPS leaving users to change it at will.

The company still isn’t committed to a timeline for the launch of 60 FPS on Android but will give further updates as more breakthroughs are made.


Fortnite leaker claims mods are coming soon

Fortnite could soon be getting support for mods if a claim from a reliable leaker is to be believed. 

Since being released over three years ago, Fortnite’s new content and changes have all come from Epic Games. The developers had added everything from new weapons to a new map, as well as unique vehicles that you won’t see anywhere else.

Though, Fortnite players have gone above and beyond with their own creations in Creative mode – using all the tools at their disposal to create wacky and huge maps that provide hours of fun. 

However, Epic Games could soon be handing players the power to use mods in Fortnite to make things a little more interesting.

Epic Games have had control over all of Fortnite’s content, but that could soon change,

Reliable leaker Lucas7Yoshi made the claim on Twitter on November 23, but couldn’t explain just how far the modding capabilities would stretch. 

“Modding support will be coming to Fortnite…,” the Fortnite dataminer said, before following that up with a little bit more info amid a myriad of questions from his followers.

“Confidence for this is its 100% in the works,” he added. “To what extent you could mod the game or what you could do with it I’m not sure. But it’s definitely by definition ‘modding’.”

It could, very well, be the case that Epic makes it possible for players to use their own weapon skins in the battle royale mode, but can make bigger and bolder changes in Save the World where their mods wouldn’t influence other players as much.

The introduction of mods would certainly excite many players, but, there is a fine balance to uphold so that they don’t completely break the game.

Plus, there is also the question of whether or not they would be PC-only or work on console too. But, we’ll just have to wait and see what further info is released surrounding the possibility of mods.
