Epic Games has released a brand new update for Fortnite. According to the developers, Update 14.40 significantly reduces the size of the game on the PC. To be more precise, the team was able to reduce its PC size by 60GB, something that will please a lot of PC gamers.
Please note the patch size will be larger than normal on PC (approx. 27 GB). This is to make optimizations on PC resulting in a massively reduced Fortnite file size (over 60 GB smaller), smaller downloads for future patches, and improved loading performance.

Furthermore, this new version of Fortnite will allow for smaller downloads for future patches and improved loading performance. However, the download size of Update 14.40 is around 27GB. Still, this is great news for all those gaming on SSDs, so here is hoping that Activision will follow Epic Games’ example for all the future COD games.
Speaking of Fortnite, and as we’ve already mentioned, Epic Games’ title supports Ray Tracing and DLSS 2.0. Epic Games used Ray Tracing in order to improve Reflections, Shadows, Ambient Occlusion and Global Illumination.
