One of the most popular battle royale games in the world is getting RTX support on PC. Nvidia and Epic Games are adding Ray-Tracing and DLSS 2.0 to Fortnite.

In a world where competitive online gamers are lowering in-game settings to gain an advantage, like setting shadows to Low, to spot you camping in that corner faster, one of the most played Battle Royal games worldwide is getting a Ray Tracing treatment on PC - Fortnite.

The RTX supported games list is not a long one, so we support any new addition to it. We simply love pretty graphics and we can't help it.

So, yesterday Nvidia held an online showcase of the newest GeForce RTX roster, the GeForce RTX 30-series, where the Leather Jacket Dude showed the world one of the prettiest GPUs of all time - RTX 3080, and we got the chance to feast our eyes with Fortnite mayhem in a Ray-Tracing galore. 

While not many gamers got the pricey flagship RTX graphic cards in their rigs (maybe the money went on all the flashy RGB mousepads and overly-priced gaming chairs?), it’s an interesting marketing move by Nvidia to go all guns raytracing and partner up with Epic Games. Fortnite is still one of the most popular games out there, and a lot of kids will want to see their character do the floss dance in a reflection of a gas station window. Okay, even we want to see it now.

Alongside Ray-Traced reflections, Ray-Traced shadows, Ray-Traced Ambient Occlusion, Ray-Traced Global Illumination, Fortnite will support DLSS 2.0 (Deep Learning Super Sampling), which is an AI-assisted feature that’s rendering fewer pixels and then using AI to construct sharp, higher resolution images while boosting the frame rates, and a new technology coming out with the new RTX 30-series - Nvidia Reflex, that reduces latency and improves responsiveness. You’ll be able to chop down that tree with no lag at all. 

Fortnite with RTX is coming soon to Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 4.
