"Fortnite" Rocket Will Simultaneously Launch For All Gamers This Afternoon

Fortnite players meeting at ‘the rocket’ for tomorrow’s first real time mystery event

We'll update you as more information on Playground becomes available.

MrPopoTFS on Reddit (a developer at the game) has clarified when we can see an update for Playground mode hit. Has the June 29 update rectified that?

The exact reason why is not clear, but it seems that Epic was extremely keen on letting everybody know - perhaps to ensure that a bunch of gawkers don't show up on Sunday for the glorious spectacle that is a crushing wave of realisation that you missed the actual glorious spectacle. The term means users don't need to make any purchases to get the gaming experience, but games like Fortnite do offer in-game purchases like outfits, characters, tools, and even dance moves so creators can make a profit off of players.

Fortnite fans could see the mode re-enabled later today, but some new features in the past have been delayed for a number of days and the size of the Playground Mode could see a similar situation happen again.

Along with the sandbox-style Playground mode (which now remains offline while Epic irons out issues that cropped up shortly after it launched), this week's Fortnite: Battle Royale update marked the start of another limited-time event, Final Fight Teams of 12.

"Yesterday we launched the Playground LTM". Unfortunately, Final Fight has attracted significant criticism in both of its variants: Teams of 20 and Teams of 12, the latter of which just went live on Wednesday.

The Final Fight game mode forced teams to travel to a third and final circle, where the storm was halted and a countdown clock began.

Resources gathered grant 10x the normal rate.
