Fortnite Season 7

Fortnite PC players are up for a surprise, as the upcoming Season 7 will bring in an enhanced visual treat, with better graphics and optimal performance

When Chapter 2 Season 7 (v17.00) arrives next week, Fortnite on PC will receive upgraded visuals! While running “Epic” graphics settings on a machine that meets system requirements, gamers will be able to enjoy new and enhanced effects plus improved post-processing features and shadow quality.

Fortnite Season 7 for PC users

Starting with Chapter 2 Season 7, if gamers play with their “Quality Presets” option set to Epic, they will notice both Battle Royale and Creative modes receive a benefit.

These arrive from improved storm and cloud effects, as well as enhanced simulations for smoke and liquid. They can expect cooler-looking explosions, fire, and Slurp effects.

The changes will include improved post-processing features for bloom and lens flares, as well as improved shadow quality.

Upgraded Season 7 coming up

Because of these upgrades, Epic settings will require higher device specifications to run with optimal performance. High settings will become the equivalent of the pre-Season 7 Epic settings, so players’ experience with high settings may change depending on their specifications.

Low and Medium settings, as well as the Performance rendering mode alpha, will remain the same with the release of v17.00, or Season 7.
