Another week, another Fortnite update. The Fortnite 7.30 update adds a host of new features to Epic Games' battle royale title for Android, iOS, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC. These include support for controllers for Fortnite Android and iOS, 60Hz on select Android smartphones and the Solid Gold Limited Time Mode (LTM). Also there's a new weapon called the Chill Grenade. However the most meaningful additions are those that add controller support and 60Hz for Android. Reason being, it gives the game a massive advantage over PUBG Mobile that doesn't support either feature officially, forcing players to use low-tech options like triggers in lieu of controllers. The Fortnite 7.30 update download size has not been revealed yet, but if it's like past versions, expect it to be around 150MB on iOS.
Furthermore, the Nintendo Switch version of Fortnite sees a welcome number of improvements too. These include more efficient memory allocation to prevent crashes, an increased texture pool size to reduce blurry textures, and an improved resolution on the Nintendo Switch as well.
"Things like frame rates and overall performance are things we are constantly working on optimising across all platforms," a post from an Epic Games employee reads.
