Fortnite freezing on GeForce Now PC and Mobile seems to be caused by the latest update released on April 11. The Epic Games team tweeted that they know the increased crashes and freezes for players using GeForce Now PC and are investigating a fix.

However, you can also do a few things to ensure you are playing Fortnite on GeForce Now PC and Mobile with the proper setup while you wait for an official communication regarding the issue.

Make sure you are playing on a GeForce now supported browser:

  • Chrome: This browser can used if you are playing on a Chromebook, PC, or Mac
  • iOS Safari: This browser can be used if you are playing on an iPhone or iPad
  • Edge: This browser is currently in beta, so it is recommended you use Chrome instead, if possible

Ensure your internet is running properly as GeForce Now requires specific speeds to function properly:

  • 1080p at 60 FPS: 25Mbps+
  • NVIDIA Data Center Latency: 40ms

Ensure your television is supported by GeFroce Now:
