Fortnite Playground LTM ends July 12, minor changes coming in next update

Fortnite's Playground LTM ends in a week, Epic teases plans for the next one

Fortnite Playground LTM disappears July 12, but don’t worry

But part of the reason Fortnite has been so successful is because it's a living service, adding exciting new modes to keep players interested including the battle royale mode that skyrocketed it to new heights in the first place.

Each Playground match lasts for one hour, and the storm circle won't begin closing in on the map until 55 minutes have passed.

According to the studio, here are some of the changes they are making: "For the next version of Playground we're hoping to include functionality that would allow team selection options within the Playground itself".

Fortnite Playground essentially acts as a training mode, with the LTM letting players practice building and shooting skills away from the battlefield.

The Fortnite Playground limited time mode finally got underway for real this week and has managed to run along pretty well since.

Thirty minutes of extra time failed to celebrate the sides, before the young England team exorcised the demons of shootouts past with a 4-3 spotkick win.

On Fortnite's Reddit, the game's developers state that they will be shutting down Playground Mode next week to make updates."We appreciate all of the awesome feedback we've received and are beginning work on the next version of Playground", they wrote.

Until there is a set arrival date, players will continue to express their creativity and push the limits of Fortnite: Battle Royale in the Playground LTM. However, it is definitely coming back at some unplanned point in the future, and we know what it will look like when it does.

"Eventually, have a folder where people can download maps made by other users".

Don't worry though - Epic Games know they have a hit on their hands.

"Playground is the most fun I had in this game in the longest time".
