Fortnite is receiving a ton of new and exciting content in Update 14.40. At the same time, the game's file size is being reduced by over 60 GB!

Let's go over the latest Fortnite update, and what it brings to the table.

File Size

Fortnite has been one of the most demanding games on file size that gaming has embraced in recent years. Previously the game sat at roughly 90GB, taking up space that players would've loved to use for other games or important programs.

DOWNSIZING: Fortnite will be much more PC-friendly with a huge file size reduction

This has been a similar problem with Call of Duty Warzone, which is notorious for massive 50-60GB updates.

But for Fortnite, this is now a problem of the past, as Update 14.40 reduces the game's file size by over 60GB! This is roughly 2/3 of the initial file size gone, all while adding new content.
