Playground Mode returns to Fortnite in 1st Birthday update

Last month, Epic Games included a brand new limited time mode (or LTM) called Playground Mode. This peaceful mode allowed players to roam around the world freely, either on their own or in a squad, and build to their hearts content. It’s perfect for practicing for Battle Royale, or if you just want to screw about with your friends. The mode returns tomorrow (25th July 2018) for a limited time with brand new features, such as more supply drops, lowered respawn time, in-game team switching, and more.

That’s not all as today marks Fortnite’s 1st Birthday! To celebrate, Epic have included some exclusive birthday swag. Each Birthday challenge which you complete will unlock a new piece of Birthday gear. You can also find slices of Birthday cake around the world which will increase both your health and shield by 5 points. Finally, there have also been a few cosmetic changes added to the battle bus and supply drops.

Check out the full patch notes from the 5.10 update, which is live now, right after the break!

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
