Epic Have Already Turned Off Fortnite Battle Royale's New Playground Mode


"You may have seen the timer update in-game, which means we are giving you two more days to complete Season 4!"

This will be the first time Epic Games will incorporate a real-time game event that couldn't be seen by players after its initial introduction.

We'll update you with any additional information on Monday, July 2.

The new mode of play was removed Wednesday to the chagrin of many players. We are holding the release until next week to continue hammering away this weekend.

Fortnite's heralding a pretty important event tomorrow, and if you're planning on being out of the house for a bit, you may want to rethink those plans.

Paul George indicates he feels obligation to Thunder
It's obviously still possible that the Lakers could land George in free agency, but two other stars appear to be more-likely gets. George has spoken out about the free agency process and said his decision will be based on multiple factors.

A handful of streamers and YouTubers were able to record their Playground sessions before the mode was taken offline, so at least we can all watch other people have fun while we wait.

"An update will come closer to 10am Eastern Time today, June 29th". Epic Games has finally acknowledged the launching of a missile with an in-game message.

The back and forth between Epic and fans has been slightly confusing, as Epic said on Thursday that they had "made major improvements to our matchmaking service in order to handle the amount of you wanting to hop in the Playground LTM", according to the official "Fortnite" Twitter account. While the usual servers were back up and running within a few hours, Playground mode has yet to be restored. You gather resources 10x faster than normal, and there are more llamas and chests to loot.

"We're testing all of this now, and we're working hard to get Playgrounds live again as soon as we think it's ready".
