Fortnite adds movement with gyroscopes on PC, PS4 and PS5

While this gyroscope feature already existed on Nintendo Switch and Android , Fortnite  has just implemented it on Playstation 4 and Playstation 5 consoles , and for PC users .

This feature will allow the player to control the camera in Fortnite just by moving the controller. In this way, gyroscope controls can be combined with the traditional ‘stick’ to improve precision and movement within the video game.

Epic Games also worked with flick stick creator Julian “Jibb” Smart to add more gyroscopic controls and the flick stick option , which will quickly move the camera in a desired direction.

Currently, there are separate combat and build modes, which will allow players to be able to customize their experience with the gyroscope controls, whether to aim or disable the option when building.

The official Fortnite page also left a guide for the user, who will be able to customize the settings to his liking. The guide is located on the official page of Epic Games .

How to test this function?

Users who want to use this gyroscopes feature in Fortnite  should remember that it disables aim assist. PS5 DualShock 4 and DualSense controllers will be able to support PC gyro controls.

On the other hand, Nintendo Switch players will be able to continue to experience the gyroscope in Fortnite, either with the Joy-Con or the Pro ControllerAlso, Android gamers will still be able to use the gyroscope, depending on the smartphone they are using.
