"Fortnite" Developer Epic Games Shutting Down Playground Mode

Each Playground match lasts for one hour, and the storm circle won't begin closing in on the map until 55 minutes have passed.

Playground, for those unaware, is a new game mode in Fortnite: Battle Royale that allows players to enter the island alone, with only a couple friends, or as part of a random squad.

The LTM mode has only been running for a few days but Epic Games have already revealed an end date for Fortnite Playground.

"We'll be turning off the Playground LTM on Thursday, July 12th as we take it back under construction for the next version". That would enable 1v1 and 2v2 games, the ability to edit structures built by other players, traps that react properly to enemies and teammates, highlighting teammates on the map, and being able to do damage to enemy players with your pickaxe.

Soon, it seemed that nearly everyone on the plane was rooting for them, with one young toddler waving at them continually. Eventually, the flight ended, but the man and woman stayed together as they went through baggage claim. .

The mode, as we know it, is described as the "first step into what a full creative mode looks like in Fortnite", so expect to see a whole lot more creativity spilling out in the future as players are given more and more tools to play around with.

The mode also features respawns, increased resources and a ten minute time limit making it extremely different from any other mode in the game.

On the plus side, Epic Games has said that it has heard fans' pleas for the Playground mode to become a permanent game type. Well, aside from the upcoming Fortnite Playground v2 mode, which promises improvements and changes that will make for even more fun.
