Fortnite with good graphics was not something I had on my bingo card.


Graphically that looks stellar. I also have not played Fortnite in a few years, so I’ll be checking it out and see what else has changed.

I’ve not played in a very long time and the game is transformed with the change in graphics engine.

The game looks so good and plays very well.

It’s still crazy to me that I reviewed this game just before it exploded… (I still have my Save the World review copy lol).

Edit : I found it


Taken from my Series S, and the update still looks amazing even on this little thing.


How big is the game now? I might have to actually play it :sweat_smile:.
