EPIC GAMESFortnite Playground mode- Hopes raised LTM could return to Battle Royale today
Since Playground was been removed, players have been clamouring for the return of the experimental game mode, asking Epic when the sandbox take on Fortnite is likely to return.
Later Thursday night, a tweet revealed that more testing on matchmaking would be needed before releasing the mode again. That's an update on the status of the mode, not an actual update to the game.
The mode was initially launched Wednesday morning with the game's regular weekly update, but was taken offline by developers at Epic Games shortly afterwards, along with all other Fortnite modes, when the influx of players caused a crash in the game's matchmaking software.
"We know you want to get back out to the Playground LTM". "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".
The preview for the article said: "Hey there, We're continuing testing on our matchmaking improvements and are still aiming to open the Playground LTM later today". This marks the first time Epic Games will be using a one-time only live event. "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.
The development team have now confirmed that fans will have to wait until later today (June 29) to hear more on when the popular LTM will be coming back on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch and iOS.
It came after Fortnite fans were hit by long queues and error messages when trying to play the Playground mode soon after the latest addition to Battle Royale went live. "More details available tomorrow".
As previously mentioned, the limited-time Playground mode also suffered from a series of issues following its launch and still hasn't returned to the rotation.
