Fortnite's Playground Mode Vanishes on 12th July, But It Will Be Back

Nichole VegaJul 07, 2018

Playground, which allows players up to one hour in a relatively casual environment, will become a permanent game mode in Fortnite: Battle Royale, according to the game's official Twitch account.

Fortnite's Playground Limited Time Mode, despite its rough start, has been met with insurmountable success and player adoration. "We'll be turning off the Playground LTM on Thursday, July 12th as we take it back under construction for the next version", the team stated in a recent Reddit post.

"The Playground LTM represents our first step into what a full creative mode looks like in Fortnite", it said. Now, Epic Games has announced that they will be suspending the popular game mode. The note on the Playground LTM entry revealed that Epic would only make the mode available for a limited amount of time, adding it to the roster of other things it would introduce, only to later remove.

However, the prospect of losing access to Playground in the near future resulted in Internet begging, with fans requesting (and demanding) that Epic leave Playground as a permanent installation.

Although there's no fixed date for when Playgrounds will return, Epic has detailed a bunch of changes for the next version.

From the wording of the message, it sounds like Playground is not in it's final "version", and so it is expected there will be changes made in the future which may lead to it being temporarily disabled. Have you been enjoying Playground mode?

In Fortnite Playground v2, Epic Games is hoping to give players the ability to choose teams, in groups of 1v1 or 2v2.
