A message sent from the official Fortnite Twitch channel has confirmed that the popular Playground mode will be a permanent addition to the game, not simply a Limited Time Mode.
The Playground mode was a heavily requested feature since Fortnite Battle Royale first gained popularity, allowing players to practice their building without the pressure of a real match.
The mode also features respawns, increased resources and a ten minute time limit making it extremely different from any other mode in the game.
But, with other new modes in Fortnite, fans feared it would only be available for a limited time, similar to other popular modes like 50v50, which come and go in the game.
But it looks like Playground is here to stay permanently, which will make a lot of fans very pleased considering it’s incredible popularity.
It did take some time to fine tune the mode for full release, but now that it is in the game, fans are pushing it to its very limits and going wild with the creativity it fosters.
This message from the official Fortnite Twitch account is the only confirmation we have so far, stating they plan to have Playground remain permanently.
This image was posted to Reddit immediately, and fans on the dedicated Fortnite Battle Royale subreddit have been responding very positively to the news.
From the wording of the message, it sounds like Playground is not in it’s final ‘version’, and so it is expected there will be changes made in the future which may lead to it being temporarily disabled.
