After some initial teething troubles, the Playground mode was finally made open for business earlier this week, allowing players to jump into a completely free map with nothing but their own imagination for company. At its core, the mode is a private space where up to four players can interact independently of others.

This image was posted to Reddit immediately, and fans on the dedicated Fortnite Battle Royale subreddit have been responding very positively to the news.

JustMooney1 said: "We appreciate all of the awesome feedback we've received and are beginning work on the next version of Playground".

Epic said it hopes to deliver a "full creative mode" inside Fortnite someday, and Playground is the "first step" towards that. However, it is definitely coming back at some unplanned point in the future, and we know what it will look like when it does.

Fortnite's newest limited time mode, Playground, will leave the game on Thursday, July 12, developer Epic Games has announced. Epic has alluded to this possibility before when it expressed interest in making Playground a permanent part of the game, as opposed to the Limited-Time Mode that it is right now. As we all know by now standard Battle Royale has one hundred players falling onto the map to hunt each other until there is only one team or individual left standing. There's also much more loot to find, and it affords opportunities to screw around with the game that you could not in a regular match.
