A new Fortnite update has gone live on all platforms to address stability and performance issues going into the weekend. Epic Games posted some notes explaining the update on Reddit, which you can also read below.
We’ve released a maintenance patch to address:
-The queuing bug with tournaments
-The “Disable Pre-edit Option” in BR/Creative applying to STW
-The recent performance issues on PC (DX12 still impacted)
-The PS5 stability issues

The maintenance update, labeled patch 2.03, specifically addresses a bug that was preventing players from queuing in tournaments, an issue involving the “disable pre-edit” option, and performance issues affecting players on PC and PS5.
According to Epic Games, running Fortnite in Performance Mode may degrade the game’s texture quality after updating to this new version, which is an intentional feature meant to preserve high framerates.
