Fortnite released a maintenance update today for the PC version of the game. The patch addresses performance issues relating to the DirectX 12 support system.
Fortnite Releases Maintenance Patch for PC
Tuesday's Fortnite maintenance update is available upon launching or restarting the game. The patch tackles performance issues found with the game's support of DirectX 12 technology, currently in its Beta stage. DirectX 12 is the latest graphics support system in Microsoft's DirectX line.
DirectX 12's standout features are its advanced Raytracing and Variable Rate Shading (VRS). Raytracing simulates the realism of light reflecting off objects while VRS instantly adjusts the level of shading depending on movement and other changes in a scene. These two features combine to create the highest-quality graphics experience available to PC gamers.
The Fortnite maintenance patch is currently live for only the PC version of the game. It comes less than one week after another maintenance patch that addressed a number of stability issues with the game across all platforms.
