Epic Games has revealed that the current run of Fortnite’s Playground LTM is set to come to an end next week. The Playground mode will be turned off on Thursday, July 12, as the team take it back under construction for the next version.
Speaking in a Reddit post, one of Fortnite’s Community Managers broke the news, and also gave players a look at what they can expect from the next version of Playground. The most notable tease is that the next version of Playground will include team selection options. As detailed in the post, this feature would allow players to do the following:
- 1v1s and 2v2s
- Aim assist for controllers
- Editing other player’s structures
- Traps affecting teammates/enemies correctly
- Highlighting teammates on the map
- Damaging enemies with your pickaxe
Playground is a limited time mode that allows players to practice strategies without the threat of being killed by other players. It’s a training mode of sorts, in which the storm stays still for the majority of the round, allowing players to try out building techniques, gunplay, and generally get to grips with the game. The Playground LTM has allowed players to create awesome structures using the game’s building tools. You can check out our picks of the best builds in Fortnite Playground here.
