With its newest patch, Fortnite now runs at full 4K resolution on Xbox One X.
Back in late November, Fortnite received a patch to make it Xbox One X enhanced. Unfortunately, it still didn’t run at full 4K resolution. The PR team at Epic confirmed at the time that Fortnite ran at 80% of 4K (3072 by 1728 pixels), though the image was then upsampled to 4K through a high-quality software upsampler. Now players will get a crisp full 4K image when playing Fortnite.
