Fortnite Chapter 4 is finally here – so what better time to take a look at the best graphics settings for your PlayStation 5.

It is well known that Epic Games is very meticulous when it comes to Fortnite’s performance. This is because the game works on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices.

Fortnite offers cross-platform support on all platforms. With Chapter 4, the game started using Unreal Engine 5.1. With it, the game looks better than ever before.

While a lot of the detailed graphics settings are reserved for the PC version, console gamers still have some options that they may want to change.

This will all depend on if you want to focus on Fortnite looking its best, or if you prefer pure performance – either way, both modes are catered for. Here we focus on how to make Fortnite run its best (in our opinion) on PS5.

With the release of Chapter 4, a few special graphics enhancements were added to Fortnite. Nanite, Lumen, Virtual Shadow Maps and Temporal Super Resolution technologies all make the game look better are available on PlayStation 5.

If you want the game looking its best, you’ll be able to output Fortnite at native 4K with all of these features enabled. However, for those wanting more performance – in the form of a 120Hz mode – that’s available, too – at a cost of resolution and graphical fidelity.

Opting for 120Hz mode will see output resolution drop from 4K to 1440p. Just like Fortnite on the Xbox Series X, postprocessing, shadows and streaming distances will take a hit, but volumetric clouds, high quality shaders and physical rim lighting will remain enabled.

Remember, you need to make sure your TV is compatible and supports 120Hz, plus you’ll need a high speed USB. With that said, here are our recommended graphics settings for Fortnite on PS5:

  • 120FPS Mode – On
  • Brightness – 120%
  • User Interface Contrast – 1x
  • Color Blind Mode – Off (You can use if you need it)
  • Motion Blur – Off (This can cause a cinematic blur effect which can make it harder to home in on moving targets)

We also would not recommend showing the FPS counter, as this can be distracting and – as you’re on a console which cannot be overclocked or tweaked like a PC – is not worth it.
