If you ever dreamed of playing Fortnite in 4K resolution, you could be getting your wish soon, as Epic Games reveals plans to enhance the battle royale game for PS4 Pro.

The PlayStation 4 Pro supports native 4K resolutions as well as HDR (high-dynamic range), which is utilised by a handful of games, and Fortnite could be next.

In the most recent State of Development update, Epic Games addressed a number of performance improvements they are hoping to make across platforms, but gave a special mention to the PS4 Pro.

Currently, both the standard PS4 and PS4 Pro display Fortnite in the default 1080p, and maintains a smooth 60fps almost always. However, it is perhaps not using the full power of the Pro console

Epic didn’t specifically say that it would reach native 4K, or even upscaling to 4K, only that it would be “greater than 1080p res when connected to a 4K TV.”

They also don’t state specifically when this improvement will be coming, but that it will be in the near future, so perhaps players can expect it around the time of the Season 6 launch, expected in late September.

“For those of you playing Fortnite on a PS4 Pro, in the near future we’re adding support for greater than 1080p res when connected to a 4K TV. Plan out that next drop with even more clarity!”

Microsoft’s Xbox One X console, their rival to Sony’s Pro, also supports 4K resolution, but the State of Development update made no mention of improvements coming to the Xbox version.

Fortnite uses a system called ‘dynamic resolution’ to ensure a good frame rate, meaning that when action in-game gets busy, it will drop the res to keep the frames steady. So although it may be able to hit 4K at some points on PS4 Pro, it may not be steady at 4K at all times.

In addition to the improved resolution, Epic also rolled out a fix to ‘screen hitching’, which was mainly affecting Xbox users, in the v5.30 update.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.

Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.

To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
