The video aired during today’s event shows Fortnite running on Unreal Engine 4. Epic Games confirmed earlier this year that the game will also be available on the Xbox Series X at launch, as well as PS5. Given Fortnite‘s massive popularity, it only makes sense to see it ready in time for the launch of both next-gen consoles. Of course, Fortnite is a free-to-play game, so those that have yet to try it might be interested in snagging it on launch day to have something extra to play!
This year has been a particularly strong one for Fortnite. The game has seen a number of major updates over the last few months, including August’s debut of Chapter 2 Season 4. The game’s latest season is focused on the Marvel Universe, adding skins based on some of the company’s most popular characters, including Iron Man, Thor, and Groot. Fortnite has seen a number of major pop culture crossovers, but the latest with Marvel takes things a bit further, as the storyline has an in-continuity tie-in comic written by Thor writer Donny Cates.
Fortnite is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The game will also release on PS5 and Xbox Series X later this year. You can check out all of our previous coverage of the game right here.
