Epic Have Already Turned Off Fortnite Battle Royale's New Playground Mode

He also confirmed that the game mode would be unavailable throughout the night and Fortnite fans should expect another update on the progress some time today.

Within a couple of hours of going live, Playground was taken offline, with Epic citing server strain as the issue. When Thursday rolled around though, there we no updates on the situation and PlayGround Mode was still down. With the Playground mode giving players the ability to explore their own private island, with up to three friends and increased amounts of loot, it's understandable why users might be disappointed and hungry for more information.

Fortnite has remained as one of the most popular games in the world for several reasons. "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, " Epic posted to the "Fortnite: Battle Royal" subreddit.

The tweet linked to an article on the Fortnite Battle Royale Reddit page.

Currently, the Fortnite Playground status is still "delayed".

The 50v50 mode was meant to be enabled this morning to take the place of the Final Fight LTM, which "isn't quite in a state where we want it to be" just yet. "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. "More details available tomorrow".

Epic explained why it was taken offline shortly after the limited time mode was taken off the game.

"We've since separated the Playground matchmaker from the one that affects the default modes and made large improvements to assist with the number of players".

"When you make matches for every 1-4 people, it requires between 25x and 100x as many matches as normal per 100 people depending on their party size", the statement reads.
