Fortnite Xbox Series X and S will soon become a reality for gamers with the launch of the next generation consoles in close proximity.

Epic Games are promising to deliver a new, native experience for console players when the blockbuster battle royale upgrades with the official launch of the Xbox Series X and S.

Fortnite Xbox Series X: When Can You Play it?

On day one, those who pick up an Xbox Series X and S can expect to play Fortnite as soon as it releases alongside the next-gen consoles on Nov. 10.

Thanks to the different levels of power housed in the hardware of the Xbox Series X and S, the two next-gen versions of Fortnite will look to deliver on different performance targets.

Opting for looks over competitive performance, for now at least, Fortnite on Xbox Series X appears primed to have a stunning graphical upgrade with the game being optimized for 4K resolution at 60 FPS.

Additionally, the Series X will have dynamic visuals and physics not possible before on console, with grass and trees responding to explosions, enhanced fluid simulation effects for smoke and liquid, and brand new Storm and cloud effects.

Meanwhile, the Series S looks to supports most of the visual enhancements of the Series X version, all at a smaller file size thanks to its less-ambitious performance target of 1080p, 60 FPS.

With vastly improved loading times and an enhanced split-screen experience at 60 FPS on both next-gen consoles as well, Fortnite will surely be a popular download for Xbox Series X and S owners on launch day.
