Next-gen console platform support (Beta)
We’ve added initial support for Sony’s PlayStation 5 and Microsoft’s Xbox Series X consoles as first-class platforms, and throughout the year we will be updating the 4.25-Plus branch with optimizations, fixes, and certification requirements. Platform-specific functionality includes next-gen audio features, together with initial support for Online Subsystems and for TRC and XR certification. 
Production-ready Niagara VFX
The Niagara visual effects system is now production-ready—and already production-proven on Fortnite—with a polished new UI and significant performance and stability improvements. New features include the ability to create complex, large-scale particle effects such as flocking and chains, and to have particles react to music or other audio sources—all in real time.
Chaos physics and destruction system updates (Beta)
The Chaos physics system is now in active use on shipping seasons of Fortnite. With this release, Chaos supports destruction, static mesh dynamics with collisions, cloth, hair, rigid-body skeletal control for items such as ponytails, and scene queries.
