Playground Mode + New Content Live In Fortnite

Epic games has final­ly worked the kinks out of Fort­nite’s Play­ground mode and opened it up to all play­ers. Play­ground is a mode where play­ers can team up with their friends and explore the bat­tle royale map. If you hap­pen to die, you will just respawn. You are free to build, explore and prac­tice with all the loot while in a Play­ground lobby.

  • You’ll have one hour to cre­ate, play and train as you wish. 
  • Drop into the Bat­tle Royale map with a squad of friends for an hour
  • Friend­ly Fire is on
  • Play­ers respawn on elim­i­na­tion unless downed by the storm
  • The storm does­n’t start clos­ing in for 55m, and takes 5 min­utes to close in
  • Resources gath­ered grant 10x the nor­mal rate.
  • 100 Lla­mas will be spawned on the map
  • Chests & Ammo Box­es spawn 100% of the time

On top of Play­ground going live, Epic Games also released some more free con­tent for Fort­nite, both Bat­tle Royale and Save The World PVE modes.
