The latest game the team at Digital Foundry have taken on is Fortnite for the Nintendo Switch. The game launched on Tuesday and has already amassed over two million downloads from Nintendo Switch owners. The game runs at 30fps but dips down to 20fps depending on the amount of players and the location. The resolution is 900p when docked with dynamic resolution which can go as low as 729p. When Fortnite is played in handheld mode it is 720p with dynamic resolution which can go as low as 360p. Here’s a roundup from Reset Era member mario_0.
- 30fps ceiling. Drops to the 20’s depending on location and number of players.
- All the major geometry is there. Feels like the entire package. Looks surprisingly good despite the drawbacks.
- Docked mode: 900p with dynamic resolution (goes as low as 729p).
- Portable: 720p with dynamic resolution (goes as low as 360p (rare)).
- Draw distance is cut with lots of grass pop-in.
- Poor texture filtering makes it look blurry.
- Some noticeable network lag over wifi.
