PUBG creator decides to drop copyright charges against Epic Games

New Fortnite Map Changes Leak Players paying up to $450 for disc-based copies of Fortnite

Update 2: Fortnite's Playground LTM will remain offline, with Epic Games unable to fix whatever problems it's having with the 4-player creative mode. We'll update as and when we hear back.

Yesterday Epic Games pushed the Playgrounds LTM live along with new weapons and other tweaks, but it wasn't long before the inevitable happened. We've since separated the Playground matchmaker from the one that affects the default modes and made large improvements to assist with the number of players. "We've got multiple teams working to get this mode back into your hands so you can let your imaginations run wild", said Epic on Reddit.

So then, Melendez tells the operator " it's only because we're on vacation " and that's it, he's through. The voice the comedian claims is Trump says he will nominate a new Supreme Court judge in 10 to 15 days.

According to datamined files, there will be a grand total of three Fortnite 4th July skins: Fireworks Team Leader (Epic), Star Spangled Trooper (Uncommon), and Star Spangled Ranger (Uncommon). While you'll still get that chance in the future, there's no sense staying up late to wait for Playground to make a big return now that Epic Games has announced that the mode won't be returning tonight. You can consult the full Fortnite v4.5 patch notes here. Although Fortnite is free to play, gamers can purchase in-game currency to fuel the Battle Pass.

It's unclear how this will affect either game, or whether this will fundamentally change PUBG as a product, but with approximately 1.5 million players entering PUBG's battle royale at any given time, it doesn't seem the lawsuit really matters to players. You could open up a custom Fortnite match where you have a specific amount of private rules to abide by (certain guns, or building particular structures) and then battle it out on the private map.
