Fortnite Dev Working on Permanent Version of Playground

Epic Games doesn't want the popular mode to be just another limited time mode.

The story of Fortnite: Battle Royale’s limited time mode Playground is an intriguing one. Meant as a mode for up to four players to simply build and battle to their hearts’ content, it was eventually taken offline due to a large number of players queuing. It recently returned and has had a positive reception. However, Epic Games announced that it would be taking down Playground once again in order to retool it and add new features.

The developer does have other plans though. Screencapped by Reddit user FoxPUBG, the official Fortnite Twitch chat revealed that the development team was working to make Playground permanent. “We are working on a version where we can keep Playground as a mode, not just a Limited Time Mode,” the devs said.

Considering the popularity of Playground and the amount of work Epic Games has put into it, a permanent version makes sense. Currently, the developer is looking into features like highlighting teammates through the map, editing teammates’ structures, controller aim assist and even hosting 1v1s and 2v2s.

Fortnite also has more content on the way with the launch of Season 5. It will start on July 12th at 1 AM PST and has thus far been preceded by mysterious rifts popping up around the map, swallowing a few structures whole in the process.
