Epic Games couldn’t have enough of making controversial changes to Fortnite. The latest change comes from a single paragraph from the latest Fortnite update blog.

Epic has announced that they would be banning custom resolutions moving forward. However, it isn’t as simple as it reads. Epic has announced that these changes would be made for the upcoming tournament where none of the players would be able to play in custom resolutions but would be forced to play on their native 16:9 resolutions.

In the near future, we will be updating how we handle custom resolutions on PC. When using a custom resolution, vertical FOV will be locked. Horizontal FOV will be unlocked in all modes, but in competitive playlists (e.g. Arena and in-game tournaments) we will be locking the aspect ratio to 16:9.

The update is going to make its way later to the rest of the PC players where folks would be able to play stretched, but would not be able to enjoy the vertical FOV advantage they once had. However, Epic is expected to add custom FOV sliders to the game to increase your FOV is that’s something that you crave for.

Pro Fortnite players and streamers are finding themselves in a horrid position as the upcoming Fortnite World Cup looms around the corner. Professional Fortnite players have been playing on these custom resolutions for quite a while and have become accustomed to the feel of the resolution, leaving many to be concerned how this would affect their performance at the upcoming tournament.

If taking advantage of the vertical FOV is Epic’s concern of banning the resolutions, we hope they could add an option that allows players to choose where their character is on the display. Unlike CS:GO, another popular title where players often play stretched, Fortnite’s 3rd-player view forces the in-game character in the middle of the display rather than on the right or left. Fortnite’s closest rival, PUBG has made these changes in the past as well and has instead offered an excellent section of options to compensate for the changes, allowing players to have their character on the right or left side of the display.
