Fortnite's Playground mode will be taking another break next week

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

Unfortunately, Epic stopped short of revealing when this new version of Playground will make its way to the popular battle royale game.

Playground, for those unaware, is a new game mode in Fortnite: Battle Royale that allows players to enter the island alone, with only a couple friends, or as part of a random squad. Unfortunately, as mentioned, Playground is a limited-time event, so it's going away next week.

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

Playground is leaving gameplay rotation on 12th July.

The game mode was originally added on June 27 with the v4.5 update, but it was quickly removed after a slew of matchmaking issues were uncovered.

"The Playground LTM represents our first step into what a full creative mode looks like in Fortnite", Epic wrote. There's also much more loot to find, and it affords opportunities to screw around with the game that you could not in a regular match.

Fortnite Playground mode at last launched properly earlier this week after teething problems with the LTM.

While it sounds like future versions of Playground will allow for even more freedom, Fortnite fans have already done cool things with the tools available. You can spend all that time then safely practicing with the weapons, getting a feel for the map, figuring out Fortnite's tricky construction mechanics, or just goofing off. Playground mode has sparked a creativity in players that recalls Fortnite's Minecraft roots.
