Fortnite’s Playground LTM delayed until next week

Epic Games has confirmed that the long-awaited Playground LTM for Fortnite is delayed until next week. Originally added in a patch this past Tuesday, the mode was only available for a scant few hours before being pulled. Despite early reports that the issue would be resolved quickly, it appears the delay will last for at least a few more days.

Eagerly anticipated by fans, the Playground LTM (limited time mode) provides players a chance to play hour-long private matches with their squads. Among other changes, players can mine resources more quickly and are also able to respawn. The full list of changes includes the following:

  • You’ll have one hour to create, play and train as you wish. Hop in and try out version 1 of Playground!
  • Drop into the Battle Royale map with a squad of friends for an hour
  • Friendly Fire is on
  • Players respawn on death unless killed by the storm
  • The storm doesn’t start closing in for 55m, and takes 5 minutes to close in
  • Resources gathered grant 10x the normal rate.
  • 100 Llamas will be spawned on the map
  • Chests & Ammo Boxes spawn 100% of the time

However, it’s unknown whether or not all of these changes will still be in place when the mode returns. It seems the community was a bit too eager in testing the limits of near-limitless building abilities. Within hours of the modes release, players were already sharing videos of previously-impossible feats, like destroying popular location Tilted Towers with a single, well-placed bullet. Epic realizes the popularity of the mode and is committed to solving the issue. Shortly after their initial tweet, they provided a promising follow-up: “We’ll update you with any additional information on Monday, July 2.”
