Fortnite's New Close Encounters Mode Is Now Live After Being Disabled

Epic Games Outlines Future Fortnite Improvements, Including New Playground Mode

So, according to a new State of Development post (V5), Epic Games has been working on a Playground Limited Time Mode that will let players become familiar with the game's mechanics, explore the map, test out loot, respawn immediately, and it will apparently feature lots of llamas.

While they didn't specify what exactly was the problem, they did say that some sort of "issue" was affecting the gamemode on Twitter, which resulted in them having to take it down. "In the meantime, we've enabled Solid Gold", the company said.

Stats won't be kept in Playground matches so that players can't connive their way through the game's weekly challenges. Fortnite is available on PS4, Xbox One, PC and iOS.

Epic is also looking to implement more interesting limited time items like the accidentally leaked storm tracking backpack or the jetpack which was released a few days ago and has already changed the way people are playing.

When the floor plans for E3 2018 appeared online, Epic Games had a pretty big portion of the South Hall and now we know why: Fortnite. The Apple App Store charts have had Fortnite at the top for a while now, which is also good news for Epic Games. Do you think that this game is going to continue to climb in both the downloads and in revenue?

"Never try and make these games shotgun battles, but if you're chasing that high kill game you better get your hand-eye coordination on point, and you better be warmed up."
(Yes, there's a marketplace for hacked Fortnite accounts.) Thankfully, you can protect yourself with two-factor authentication. The battle royale styled game has captivated players all over the world, and is the number one game on consoles and mobile devices.
