Fortnite is replacing its Final Fight game mode with a reliable favorite

Fortnite is replacing its Final Fight game mode with a reliable favorite”

EPIC Fortnite Playground mode: When will LTM return to Xbox One, PS4, Switch, PC and iOS?

The highly anticipated Playground mode was released in Fortnite Battle Royale on Wednesday, but soon afterwards Epic Games took the LTM down.

And the preview for the Reddit article shows that a return for the Fortnite Playground mode LTM had been planned for today.

The 50v50 LTM that's replacing Final Fight will have some new guidelines compared to previous 50v50 game modes.

And their latest update about when is Playground mode coming back to Fortnite has raised hopes the LTM could be re-enabled today.

"We're continuing to test our matchmaking service improvements and are still aiming to release the Playground LTM as soon as possible. We've got multiple teams working to get this mode back into your hands so you can let your imaginations run wild", said Epic on Reddit.

Epic Games disabled the game mode shortly after the update, saying 'we are aware of long queue times and some error messages in the Playground LTM'. Epic claims the matchmaking problems are over, although we're still experiencing issues on PS4 and Xbox One. "More details available tomorrow".

Fortnite, the free-to-play game that has captivated gamers and non-gamers alike since it launched in 2017, made a record $US318 million in revenue in May, beating out every game on any platform in the history of gaming.

It's likely that when the developer finally gets Playground up and running, we'll see the mode extended beyond it's originally scheduled downtime thanks to the delays it's seen.

Why is Fortnite Playground down?

"Playground LTM launch was VERY popular and the poor matchmaker was trying to create and allocate matches faster than it could keep up with, so a backlog built up".

The Fortnite Playground status was presumably deemed stable and ready for release during internal testing.
