Tomorrow marks the day that Fortnite will be getting a graphical update to those who have real-time ray tracing compatible graphics cards. Earlier this month, it was announced that Fortnite would be getting an update to allow for Ray Tracing and DLSS compatibility.
That update lands tomorrow for Fortnite players. However, it is not available to all players. Only those that have a graphics card that is capable of utilizing the new features can experience them. This includes NVIDIA's RTX 20-series and their newly announced RTX 30-series. There are not any officially supported AMD cards, but this will change soon as AMD is revealing their new RDNA 2 cards in October.
Along with Ray Tracing and DLSS, NVIDIA's Reflex technology will also be added, allowing for those with compatible cards to take advantage of lower system latency.
You can also play on a custom map built in partnership with NVIDIA and the Fortnite creative community. It is named "RTX Treasure Run," and it was created to showcase ray tracing in Fortnite.
If you want to read the full press release from NVIDIA about this update, you can head over to their official website.
It is good to see that massively popular games like Fortnite are utilizing these new technologies, and hopefully, many other games continue to do so!
