Fortnite is available on the PlayStation Store to be downloaded for free. Nothing extravagant is required to play this free game. Just a good internet connection is required to play the game.


The only drawback of gaming on PlayStation 4 is that the FPS is locked on 30 which sometimes can cause insufficient rendering of graphics. Otherwise, the PlayStation provides one of the best gaming experiences in the world.

PC

Not every PC is adequate for playing Fortnite

Playing Fortnite is a little bit different for pc players. Console players have an easy life when it comes to playing Fortnite. They just need to download the game and they can enjoy the game.

But for pc players, they need to have a computer with the specifications to support the game.



In order to run Fortnite at a minimum:

  • you’ll need a 2.4GHz processor on Windows 7/8/10 or Mac, 4GB of RAM
  • and at least an Intel HD 4000 video card or equivalent

Playing Fortnite with these specifications won’t give you the best gaming experience but it will allow you to play the game.

If you really want to experience the world of Fortnite with adequate smoothness and enhanced gaming experience than your pc should be equipped with Core i5 2.8GHz processor or greater, at least  8GB of system RAM and at least 2GB video card such as the NVidia GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7870 equivalent DX11 GPU. With these specifications, you can enjoy an enhanced gaming experience.

  • Mac Pro
