As Epic Games slowly goes to Season 10 of Fortnite this summer, the company will update the required specs to play the game. The developers released a new announcement this week so PC players are aware of a change where their graphics card will run Microsoft DirectX 11 to continue playing the game in July.
Start With Season 10, the PC version of Fortnite will require a graphics card capable of running Microsoft DirectX 11.
While a DirectX 11 compatible graphics card always has been a Fortnite system requirement, we have kept online support for players with older graphics cards – so they could continue playing!
But when season 10 begins, Fortnite will no longer be compatible with these older graphics cards. This allows us to focus our development and testing efforts to further optimize the Fortnite experience for all players.
These news may be a bit tricky for players with an older PC model and force many to upgrade or leave Fortnite until they do. But for the vast majority of players, unless you own a PC made before 2011, the chances are all you need, compatible with what you own. Unless you know you were cheaper on parts. But that's another topic for yourself.
