Epic Games has announced that Fortnite Battle Royale’s Playground limited-time mode will be removed from the game on July 12th, 2018.
The developer promised that the mode will return in the future with a few changes, including the option to select teams, aim assist for controllers, the ability to damage enemies with pickaxes, and more. Take a look at the full list of changes below:
- 1v1s and 2v2s
- Aim assist for controllers
- Editing other player’s structures
- Traps affecting teammates/enemies correctly
- Highlighting teammates on the map
- Damaging enemies with your pickaxe
“The Playground LTM represents our first step into what a full creative mode looks like in Fortnite,” Epic added. “And remember, you will have until the release of v5.0 to access your Playground LTM replays. Thank you and let us know what else you’d love to see in a future version!”
Earlier this week, Epic released a new update for Fortnite that introduced the Drum Gun to Battle Royale and the Lynx to Save the World.
Fortnite Battle Royale is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Nintendo Switch, and iOS.
