Fortnite’s Playground LTM To Become Permanent
It took a bit of extra work on Epic Games’ part, but they finally got the Playground LTM up and running in Fortnite. When it dropped with the recent large update, it was quickly taken offline for some emergency maintenance. Once it arrived in the game, however, players were off to the races with building the craziest of structures without having to worry about someone double-pump shotgunning them in the back.
That being said, it looks like Epic is working on bringing the Limited Time Mode to Fortnite full-time. “Yeah, we are working on a version where we can keep Playground as a mode, not just a Limited Time Mode,” the devs recently said on the Fortnite Twitch channel. Some super-sleuths over on Reddit were able to catch the comment, after which they shared it on the popular forum site.
This is likely great news for fans of the Battle Royale title. Whether you need the practice or not, the Playground is a great place to squad up with some friends, build some epic ramps or giant llamas, and just have a great time without all of the pressure that comes with trying to capture that Victory Royale. Here’s more about the soon to be permanent mode:
“Playground is a low-pressure environment where friends can let their creativity run wild. Build massive structures. Practice with the weapons and items. Fight against your friends. Have fun!”
- You’ll have one hour to create, play and train as you wish. Hop in and try out version 1 of Playground!
- Drop into the Battle Royale map with a squad of friends for an hour
- Friendly Fire is on
- Players respawn on death unless killed by the storm
- The storm doesn’t start closing in for 55m, and takes 5 minutes to close in
- Resources gathered grant 10x the normal rate.
- 100 Llamas will be spawned on the map
- Chests & Ammo Boxes spawn 100% of the time
We imagine the Playground that will be made permanent will have some tweaks added to it, and it’ll likely be taken away before it returns without the LTM tag. We’ll have to wait for Epic to make an official announcement before we know anything for sure.
