Fortnite Season 10 starting in August will require a DirectX 11 graphics card


Fortnite has always been accessible with versions on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and even iPhone and Android. However, the PC version still is the best way to play the battle royale.

Season 10 Requirements

Epic Games is making the requirements to play Fortnite on PC a little tighter. Fortnite season 10 will require a DirectX 11 graphics card, as it’s said in a blog post from Epic Friday.

“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.”

It’s unlikely that you’re currently using a computer with a 10 years old graphics card, but you might want to still check if your card supports at least DirectX 11. There is how you do it:

  1. Press the Windows logo key and the R key simultaneously to open Run
  2. Type dxdiag into Run and press OK or hit the Enter key
  3. Wait for the DirectX Diagnostic Tool to open
  4. Navigate to the System page and your version of DirectX should be listed

Seeing as Season 9 is set to end on August 1st, Fortnite Season 10 is due to start somewhere around the start of August.
