Fortnite Playground Mode Still Isn't Ready

As previously mentioned, Epic meant to launch Playground mode alongside Fortnite's 4.5 patch last Wednesday; however, shortly after the mode went live, it was pulled from the rotation due to technical issues, and it has remained unavailable since.

"We're continuing testing on our matchmaking improvements and are still aiming to open the Playground LTM as soon as we're confident in our improvements", says Epic on the Fortnite reddit.

Here's the latest from Epic Games, who reports: "We've completed our testing process for the improvements to our matchmaking services and are deploying servers that will bring back the Playground LTM. We're going to closely monitor our stability over this time". In an update that was shared before the start of the weekend when many expected to spend their time in the Playground, Epic Games said that the game mode wouldn't be back until at least the next week. "We have some system performance goals that we believe are required in order to relaunch the Playground LTM", the developer wrote.

"We'll provide another update once we have more information".

"Matchmaker tries its best, but eventually ends up like Lucy at the candy factory". Mostly we've got the usual suspects here, though there is a return for a more specialized incentive, with skydiving rings making their way back after a season three debut.

The 30-year-old will wear the number 5 shirt at the club and also has vast experience on the worldwide stage having made 79 appearances for Greece.

"It's hard to know whether we'll have to make any additional system changes in order to meet our test goals right now", Epic wrote.

"We're already starting preparations on a detailed public postmortem to let everyone peer behind the curtain and into the challenges, mistakes, and breakthroughs we're experiencing as we tackle this issue".

Playgrounds is a sandbox-oriented mode which stretches matches out to a one-hour duration.

Unlike Save the World, Fortnite Battle Royale is a free-to-play mode now available to download on most major platforms.
