Playground mode has quickly become one of Fortnite Battle Royale’s most popular limited-time modes in the few short days that it’s been live, and developer Epic Games is looking at how it can keep the creation mode in the game for good.
At least, that’s according to a screenshot of a comment from Fortnite‘s Twitch account. Responding to another commenter, the Fortnite Twitch account said that Epic is “working on a version where we can keep Playground as a mode, not just a Limited Time Mode.”
If you haven’t tried it yet, Playground mode lets a four-player squad drop into the map alone and just start building without fear from enemy players. Resource gathering is at 10x the normal rate and, on top of that, all chests and ammo boxes spawn on the map, as do 100 llamas.
Best of all, friendly fire is on, letting players scrimmage while they practice building with their friends without any real consequences. Players instantly repsawn when they die, so there’s nothing really to worry about except for the storm, which only starts in the last five minutes of the hour-long time limit.
Epic hasn’t stated how long Playground mode will stay in its current iteration, though most limited-time modes only last for a week before another one replaces them. However, given its current popularity and meme potential, we have a feeling that Epic will work on bringing Playground mode back as soon as it can.
Besides Playground mode, Fortnite Battle Royale made headlines recently for its one-time rocket launch event that has since created strange tears in the fabric of the map’s space-time continuum. Players are still anticipating how the aftermath of the launch plays out, though they probably won’t have long to wait, considering season five kicks off July 12th.
Fortnite is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile.
