Fortnite prepares for next-gen warfare with glossy PS5 gameplay teaser


Battle Royale Beyond

Inevitably, Epic Games' phenomenally popular Fortnite will be making the leap into the next-generation of gaming hardware. Of course it will be, given that the battle royale extravaganza still boasts hundreds of millions of players worldwide.

Fortnite will launch on PS5 and Xbox Series X on each platform's respective release day, meaning that there will be no wait in boarding the Battle Bus for a whole new generation of wall-building, loot-gathering, head-popping multiplayer mayhem. Players will be able to carry their current-gen accounts over onto the new platform, retaining all in-game purchases and progression.

Publisher Epic Games has released a short teaser trailer, which you can check out below, demonstrating Fortnite in action on PlayStation 5 hardware. Developed in Unreal Engine 4, everything looks suitably shiny and glorious, securing the immediate future of one of the most popular video games of all-time. Where we dropping, fellow kids?

Fortnite is available now on PS4, PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
