Fortnite Playground Limited Time Mode Release Date is Soon

Fortnite Playground Limited Time Mode Release Date is Soon

A brand new practice mode for Fortnite Battle Royale could be right around the corner.

In a blog post from right around a month ago, Epic originally teased a "Playground" mode for Fortnite Battle Royale. Now, it appears the mode is right around the corner from releasing into the full game.

The original blog post from Epic reads: "Let your creativity run wild on your own private island. Battle and build to your heart's content with an extended period of time to roam around the map as well as increased resource generation. All treasure chests and ammo crates will be spawned, try droppin’ in different spots and scope out the loot. Friendly fire is on so you can scrimmage with your squad (up to 4 friends per match), but fear not you’ll respawn immediately."

Today, on June 25, Epic again teased the Playground mode for Fortnite Battle Royale, but this time through an in-game message which you can see just above. Although we don't yet know any additional details about when the Playground Limited Time Mode will launch, we do know that it won't be around forever, as the name suggests.

Another upcoming event in Fortnite is the Week 9 Challenges, beginning this Thursday. Playground mode might be added to coincide with these going live in the game. Head over to our Fortnite Week 9 Challenges guide if you want a complete walkthrough of how to complete all seven challenges for the week once they launch.
