How to enable 120 FPS in Fortnite on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S

In a competitive battle royale game like Fortnite, FPS plays a vital role in deciding the outcome of any battle. With cross-platform enabled, many PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S were always at a disadvantage against PC players as they were locked at 60FPS. Thanks to the latest Fortnite V 20.40 update, both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S can run 120 FPS on their respective consoles. You can enable 120 FPS on your devices by visiting your in-game graphic settings.
