Fortnite will add upgraded visuals with the Season 7 update

In a recent blog post, Epic Games has shared detailed news about the new settings and graphical upgrades. Fans will get a chance to run the title at higher settings, which will upgrade the visuals exponentially. The studio has clarified that pre-V17.00’s ‘epic’ graphic settings will become ‘high’ graphic settings.

Similarly, new epic settings will showcase boosted visuals, shadow quality, and unforeseen effects. This does not mean that the title will become unplayable for players with entry-level rigs. The studio has assured that these upgrades are only aimed at the owners of prominent PC specifications.

The Battle Royale game will continue to run at the same speed and graphical setting at both medium and low settings. Gamers will not find any performance lag or issue with the upcoming patch.
