Fortnite will soon receive support for Nvidia’s RTX raytracing and dlss 2.0. Raytracing will be used for shadows, reflections and ambient occlusion. Nvidia shows that in a short trailer.
When raytracing support is available in Fortnite, it is not yet known. In a short trailer Nvidia shows that this is coming ‘soon’. To use it, a PC with an Nvidia video card is required. Raytracing works on RTX video cards and some recent GTX video cards.
Epic Games itself has not yet announced the addition of raytracing. Nvidia only talks about its own RTX implementation. It is not yet known whether there will be support for raytracing on the next genconsoles. Both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X get raytracing support, but those consoles have an AMD GPU.
Nvidia announced the arrival of RTX raytracing to Fortnite in its GeForce Special Event livestream. The video card manufacturer will present its new series of RTX 3000 video cards on Tuesday evening.
