Hey all,

Starting with Season 10, the PC version of Fortnite will require a graphics card capable of running Microsoft DirectX 11.

While a DirectX 11-capable graphics card has always been one of Fortnite’s system requirements, we’ve kept support online for players with older graphics cards – so they could keep playing!

However, when Season 10 begins, Fortnite will no longer be compatible with these older graphics cards. This allows us to focus our development and testing efforts to further optimize the Fortnite experience for all players.

Thank you for the continued support!
