Fortnite: Battle Royale's Playground LTM Coming Very Soon

The Fortnite Fate skin is now available on PS4 Xbox One and Switch

Fortnite's new Playground mode will finally be available inside Battle Royale this week, giving players the ability to hone their skills in a more forgiving game type.

There's still no exact date on when the new mode will debut in Fortnite but we can at least get excited about the fact that it's just on the horizon.

Playground mode, which will be added in this week's content update, is where you'll finally get a chance to practice without the painful cycle of being constantly eliminated and having to wait to get into another game.

In a development update from about a month ago, Epic explained that Playground will feature extended match times, and increased resource generation. Instead of learning to play in Save the World, which is completely different from Battle Royale, you'll be able to explore the map learn the ropes on your own island. All of the game's treasure chests and ammo crates will spawn. "Friendly fire is on so you can scrimmage with your squad (up to 4 friends per match), but fear not you'll respawn immediately". Players have been asking about it for a while now, too with the "Playground when?" question often showing up in one form or another on Reddit and Twitter. This is a mode Epic mentioned a while back, but it has only just been confirmed by way of an in-game message.

"Me too! You have no idea how excited we all are to see the insane awesome things folks do with this mode", the Epic Games member said.

It is a limited-time mode, so we're not sure how long it will be sticking around.

Look for more on the Playground mode, likely with some sort of a trailer, to come from Epic games soon.
