Epic Games Aims to Re-Release ‘Fortnite’ Playground Mode ASAP

Fortnite players meeting at ‘the rocket’ for tomorrow’s first real time mystery event When is the Fortnite Playground LTM coming back?

"We're continuing to test our matchmaking service improvements and are still aiming to release the Playground LTM as soon as possible".

The 50v50 LTM that's replacing Final Fight will have some new guidelines compared to previous 50v50 game modes.

That rocket has remained a mystery in the weeks since its appearance, but we may finally know what's up starting tomorrow.

Fortnite Season 5 starts on July 12th, you have that in-game countdown clock to forever remind you, so this double XP is a great way to make one final push during Season 4.

The long-awaited Playground mode notably went live earlier this week on June 27th, but then was promptly taken offline due to substantial server issues.

England are in wrong half of draw, says former coach Eriksson
His pass completion rate stands at 95 percent, and he's brought an air of calm assurance to England's backline. The knockout game is the biggest game for a decade, so we had to make sure our key players were preserved.

That means anyone in the United Kingdom can expect to hear more about the mode at about 3pm today.

He also confirmed that the game mode would be unavailable throughout the night and Fortnite fans should expect another update on the progress some time today. Epic Games is up to something and no one knows for sure what will happen. The company plans to have an update today on the feature, when and if it will return, but now we're left in the dark. The other team has to take down the Leviathan before it's too late.

"We've been working on major matchmaking improvements over the last 24 hours, and we've also isolated Playground matchmaking to its own cluster so if it gets backed up, the worst that happens is longer Playground matchmaking times while the regular modes are unaffected".

The Fortnite Playground status was presumably deemed stable and ready for release during internal testing.
