Playground Mode gives players unprecedented creative freedom in the battle royale portion of the game, and while some fans would like to see it become a permanent part of the experience, Epic has announced that it's removing the mode on Thursday, July 12.

Do not despair. Playground will return with some minor changes and tweaks, although there's no mention of making structures or creations permanent. Some of the craziest structures ever built were constructed in Playground Mode, as players spent hours just experimenting with new methods.

Confirmation came on the official Epic Twitch account, plus more details were provided on Reddit's FortniteBR subreddit, where the company said that it is already working on "the next version" of Playground.

Fortnite Playground essentially acts as a training mode, with the LTM letting players practice building and shooting skills away from the battlefield.

You can check out the full post from Epic Games here in regards to Playground Mode getting turned off and what the new version will include in the future. There's a reason Playground is referred to as a limited time mode, though. However, it is definitely coming back at some unplanned point in the future, and we know what it will look like when it does.

Another adds: "Yeah, it would be cool to be able to save some of these maps so they can be used again". 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.

"Playground is the most fun I had in this game in the longest time".
