The popular addition to Fortnite Playground Mode is coming to an end this Thursday, July 12th. However, considering the mode’s popularity it will return at a later date.

Epic stated

Heya folks,

We appreciate all of the awesome feedback we’ve received and are beginning work on the next version of Playground. We’ll be turning off the Playground LTM on Thursday, July 12th as we take it back under construction for the next version.

For the next version of Playground we’re hoping to include functionality that would allow team selection options within the Playground itself. Here’s a few things you would gain with the ability to select teams:

  • 1v1s and 2v2s
  • Aim assist for controllers
  • Editing other player’s structures
  • Traps affecting teammates/enemies correctly
  • Highlighting teammates on the map
  • Damaging enemies with your pickaxe

The Playground LTM represents our first step into what a full creative mode looks like in Fortnite. And remember, you will have until the release of v5.0 to access your Playground LTM replays.

Thank you and let us know what else you’d love to see in a future version!

Fortnite is now available in early access on Xbox One, PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch, and iOS devices. An Android version is coming later this summer.
