  • Fortnite's Playground mode to go offline

Some of the craziest structures ever built were constructed in Playground Mode, as players spent hours just experimenting with new methods.

"The Playground LTM represents our first step into what a full creative mode looks like in Fortnite", it said.

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

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. Today Epic announced that the Playground will stay open until July 12-right when Fortnite Season 5 kicks off-at which point it will be taken down and reworked for a future LTM release.

It did take some time to fine tune the mode for full release, but now that it is in the game, fans are pushing it to its very limits and going wild with the creativity it fosters.

After suffering some critical issues that resulted in the mode being shut down and then delayed, the Fortnite Playground mode finally launched and it's the best thing ever...

"My buddies and I had so much fun in Playground".

Another adds: "Yeah, it would be cool to be able to save some of these maps so they can be used again".

However, the prospect of losing access to Playground in the near future resulted in Internet begging, with fans requesting (and demanding) that Epic leave Playground as a permanent installation.
