Epic Games has released a new software update for Fortnite on Nintendo Switch, changes made to the free-to-play battle royale game seeing it now on version 5.40 on the portable home console.
This has improved loading performance to reduce issues with buildings loading late and has fixed a “large performance regression” related to effects that had caused poor framerate.
The broken antialiasing when playing in Handheld mode has also been addressed, and players can now use the touch screen to explore the fullscreen map.
And, the last change that specifically relates to Nintendo Switch comes in the motion controls now working “uniformly” with mobile. You can now find new options in the settings menu that will let you alter your motion turn axis, and the developer has removed the motion deadzone.
Epic Games has broken down the extensive update, which has also introduced the new High Stakes event in the Getaway Limited Time Mode, the new Grappler item that lets you make a daring escape and added storm damage that will destroy player-built structures.
