A new graphics update is coming to Fornite

Fortnite's next update, 17.00, will be a big one. Releasing on June 8 alongside Season 7, it will feature some interesting graphics updates for the game.

For example, while playing on the "Epic" settings, you will experience better storm and cloud effects. Something similar will happen with fire effects, how the lakes and car explosions look because the team is improving how smoke and liquid works from a visual perspective.

Also, there will be improvements regarding postprocessing features for lens flare, bloom, and shadow quality.

Below are the specs you will need to play on "Epic" settings:

  • Nvidia GTX 1080, AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT, or equivalent GPU
  • 4 GB VRAM or higher
  • Intel Core i7-8700, AMD Ryzen 7 3700x, or equivalent
  • 16 GB RAM or higher
  • NVMe Solid State Drive
  • Windows 10 64-bit

And the recommended settings are the same as before:

  • Nvidia GTX 960, AMD R9 280, or equivalent DX11 GPU
  • 2 GB VRAM
  • Core i5-7300U 3.5 GHz
  • 8 GB RAM
  • Windows 10 64-bit
