    Epic Games has announced that it will no longer support Fortnite for players who use Windows 7 or Windows 8. Fortnite has undeniably grown in popularity over the years. It’s a game that’s constantly getting maintenance patches, hot fixes, and content updates to keep it bug-free and as entertaining for its fans as possible.

    After a few years, Fortnite has reached entirely new heights, especially when compared to its first chapter. The competitive Fortnite scene, as well as the creative game modes, have both taken off and reached new heights.

    These enhancements, however, have made it much more demanding on the systems that run it. Chapter 4 Season 2 was just released, and to kick off the season, the game needed a massive update for all platforms.

    This new season has added a massive POI called Mega City and made significant changes to the map that necessitate a lot of processing power from certain computers. As Epic Games previously stated, some changes would be required in order to support legacy operating systems.

    The gamers using Windows 7 or Windows 8 on their computers will be unable to play Fortnite because the game no longer supports older operating systems.

    There is another way to play the game, so all hope is not lost for players who want to keep their current systems. Players can use Nvidia GeForce Now to continue playing Fortnite on their Windows 7 and Windows 8 PCs via streaming. Of course, it will be a slightly different experience than native game support, but it is still a great alternative way to play the game. Nvidia GeForce Now is a cloud-based streaming service that offers a variety of membership options. This service even provides a free version for gamers to try out before making a purchase.
