Epic Games has introduced gyro-based motion controls along with a new flick stick option. While this feature was already available on the Android and Nintendo Switch versions of Fortnite, this time Epic has brought in these features on PC, PS4, and PS5. The PlayStation and PC community will now be able to enjoy these sophisticated features.
Fortnite is an online battle royale game developed by Epic Games and it is available on almost every platform. Powered by Unreal Engine 4, Fortnite is one of the most popular battle royale games of this era.
Even though the gameplay becomes shady sometimes, the gyro controls let players control their POV just by turning the controller. Your aim will become very accurate once you get habituated with the gyro controls.
However, if you are wondering what the flick stick is, it is a feature that lets you quickly flick your POV to a certain direction within a blink of an eye.
We've added new and improved gyro controls along with flick stick on the platforms that support it.
Made in collaboration with input specialist and flick stick creator @JibbSmart, check out the video for all of the details of what's new!
