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.

Fortnite Playground mode was meant to be the big Battle Royale release this week but the LTM was taken offline soon after launch.

The Playground is basically what it sounds like, a sandbox mode where players can get their bearings by playing around in the world of "Fortnite", without competing in any matches.

We will of course update you all if the mode returns, but for now you're just going to have to learn Fortnite the same way as the rest of us, by dying a lot and enduring some matchmaking times.

Fortnite Playground was launched during yesterday's update but was quickly taken down after various issues prevented players from starting a game.

We'll update you as more information on Playground becomes available. In a statement on Twitter, the game developer said "We need to continue testing our matchmaking improvements" and revealed that more details will be available "tomorrow".

MrPopoTFS on Reddit (a developer at the game) has clarified when we can see an update for Playground mode hit.

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

"We plan to push these changes and improvements live later today to bring the Playground LTM back online".

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

"This strained the system, which affected matchmaking times for regular game modes too".

"We know you're eager to get out there but due to this, we'll be unable to release this game mode tonight". Epic is now gearing up for another event, but you might only have one opportunity to see it live.
