Epic Games have announced that Fortnite fans who play the game on mobile will now be able to at 60 frames per second.

The change was not included in the V6.31 patch notes, but was released as part of the update on Tuesday, November 27.


Epic Games first teased the move to 60 FPS in a ‘State of Mobile Development’ announcement on Friday, November 2, revealing that they intended to unlock the mode on “high end devices.”

Nick ‘Unusual Spending’ Chester, who is senior member of Epic Games’ PR team tweeted that players who own either an iPhone XS, iPhone XS-Max or iPhone XR would be able to take advantage of the new 60 FPS mode.

While Epic Games had mentioned Android phones in the past, 60 FPS is only available on high-end iOS devices, with no word on when it will be released to Android players.

Players who own iPhones compatible with 60 FPS gameplay can enable it by going to the settings in the Fortnite app, and selecting it from the Video section, where they can switch between 30 and 60 FPS.

60 FPS is unavailable for older iPhones, with Chester stating that: “Performance is constrained by hardware, and the devices listed are more powerful. The team is always looking at ways to get better performances on all devices.”

Epic Games hope to continue working on the mobile version of their immensely popular title in the future, with a customizable HUB set to arrive in the near future.
