Epic Games is working a new performance mode for Fortnite Battle Royale that will target 60 FPS on consoles.

The developer revealed in its State of Development post that this optional mode will be tailor-made for each console (Xbox One, Xbox One X, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 4 Pro) to “maximize frame rate while minimizing loss of visual quality.”

This new mode is scheduled to go live before the end of this month.

Last week, the developer pushed live the first shooting test for Battle Royale. This test gives players thew chance to try out one of the two new shooting models that Epic is considering using as a default for the mode. With this model, all weapons have a first-shot accuracy bonus that is indicated by a red glow on the reticle. This bonus is granted when standing still, aiming down sights, or when the weapon hasn’t been fired in a while.

Fortnite Battle Royale is available now as a free download on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
