'Fortnite' Playground mode has one more week to live

A 'full creative mode' is in the works.

It's no secret that we love Fortnite's 4-player "Playground" mode. Whether you just need a bit of training or want to experiment with the game's features in creative ways, after a delayed launch, it's there for you -- at least for another week. Epic posted on Reddit today that the Limited Time Mode will shut down on July 12th "as we take it back under construction for the next version."

So what will be in that next version? Epic promises team selection, so you can do damage and edit other player's structures while playing 1v1 or 2v2. What players are using now, "represents our first step into what a full creative mode looks like in Fortnite." We'll have to wait to find out exactly what that means, but with skyrocketing popularity and money coming in hand over fist, it appears that esports isn't Epic's only plan to capitalize on its battle royale juggernaut.
