When is the Fortnite Playground LTM coming back?

Saturday, 30 Jun, 2018

With more resources, every chest spawning in for every game, and the option to play together with friends with friendly fire and unlimited respawns, Playground Mode is the closest thing to a private practice lobby that Fortnite has offered so far.

Epic Games released the Playground Mode on Wednesday, but it was taken down due to glitches. When Thursday rolled around though, there we no updates on the situation and PlayGround Mode was still down.

Fortnite Playground was launched during yesterday's update but was quickly taken down after various issues prevented players from starting a game. "Once we have confirmed that our testing was successful we will begin gradually rolling servers out to all regions and platforms until it's available to all players". Epic said in its most recent update on Reddit that it is continuing to test required improvements, and promised to post another update "shortly".

Currently, the Fortnite Playground status is still "delayed". Epic claims the matchmaking problems are over, although we're still experiencing issues on PS4 and Xbox One. This marks the first time Epic Games will be using a one-time only live event. "More details available tomorrow".

Akash Ambani, Shloka go traditional for pre-engagement bash
Former cricketer Sachin Tendulkar also stepped in with his wife Anjali Tendulkar in a red Indian attire to share the greetings. Guests at the bash included actress Priyanka Chopra , who reportedly took singer Nick Jonas as her date to the Ambani house.

"We've since separated the Playground matchmaker from the one that affects the default modes and made large improvements to assist with the number of players". 24 hours later the mode was still not re-enabled but Epic stated that "We're still testing these changes but are aiming to return this mode later today".

It's likely that when the developer finally gets Playground up and running, we'll see the mode extended beyond it's originally scheduled downtime thanks to the delays it's seen.

Epic developers took to reddit to explain what Fornite's latest LTM needs, and why it's proved such a strain on the server. But now we know that whatever is going to happen is going to happen live.
