Currently, everything you build in Playground is wiped after an hour.

Next week, Playground mode will go offline, with plans to return it to the playlist momentarily, complete with extra options including 1v1 and 2v2 battles, the ability to edit other player's constructions, aim assist options, new traps and more.

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

When Epic Games finally launched a map where players can practice, it came with one glaring warning: "Limited Time Mode".

"Yeah, we are working on a version where we can keep Playground as a mode, not just a Limited Time Mode", the Twitch message reads.

The purported Geekbench scores for the "MacBookPro15,2" are 16607 in the multi core test and 4448 in the single-core one. Whether this benchmark indicates the 2018 13-inch MacBook Pro will have a substantially better processor is not known.

On the plus side, Epic Games has said that it has heard fans' pleas for the Playground mode to become a permanent game type.

Playground is leaving gameplay rotation on 12th July.

"The Playground LTM represents our first step into what a full creative mode looks like in Fortnite", the developer wrote in its announcement.

This image was posted to Reddit immediately, and fans on the dedicated Fortnite Battle Royale subreddit have been responding very positively to the news. Now, Epic Games has announced that they will be suspending the popular game mode. Well, aside from the upcoming Fortnite Playground v2 mode, which promises improvements and changes that will make for even more fun.
