The popular game royal game Fortnite may struggle to maintain a solid frame rate on all platforms in certain scenarios, but the Nintendo Switch edition, at least at some point, had the toughest time maintaining a smooth frame rate in action-packed games. During a recent Reddit AMA, someone asked Epic if the studio could get Fortnite's Switch edition running at 60 FPS. It will not happen.
"I'm afraid it's not in the cards," says a developer.
Not only that, but Epic does not intend to replicate video recording on Switch, the developer said. Video recording was dropped from Fortnite's Switch edition last year in a move that Epic said was being conducted to try to improve overall performance. While client-side replicas are not expected to return to Fortnite, Epic said it plans to introduce server-side replays once down the road.
In other Fortnite news, Epic recently said it is considering allowing respawns and we might learn more during the fast start season 8. We have also recently learned that Epic is planning to update and improve game sounds while the developer also looks at measures to prevent accidental purchases. Not only that, but Epic is working on a new single-ply car to be added in the future.
Fortnite Season 8 starts February 28, and it looks like the new season will have a pirate theme. Epic will probably release a new Battle Pass with the season, and one of the skins may have been revealed. This is especially Fortnite's first new season since the launch of competitor Apex Legends.
