Epic Games has released a new software update for Fortnite on Nintendo Switch, bringing changes to the free-to-play battle royale game to version 5.2.0 on the portable home console.
This has seen the developer implement “significant GPU optimisation” on the Nintendo Switch version, which, they explain has seen them move “to the high-end forward renderer.” That has resulted in the dynamic resolution being increased “by 10 percent in expensive scenes.”
Those that download the update and play a match will soon notice the difference, the optimisation allowing for a far more fluid gameplay experience with less technical mishaps that have been hampering the game’s performance.
The only other change that is specific to the portable home console relates to the Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle scope-in sounds, that “are no longer hard-panned to the left.”
Epic Games has broken down the extensive update, which has also added the Steady Storm LTM and Double Barrel Shotgun, rebalanced the Vending Machines, tweaked the UI, and implemented numerous bug fixes.
