Fortnite’s Playground mode will be coming back on July 25, this time with even more for Battle Royale fans to enjoy.
According to a tweet from the official Fortnite game account, you can ‘set up battles with new team select options, skirt around in an ATK nd gear up with lots more loot.’
After some downtime today at 9am BST, patch 5.10 went live with a bunch of new changes. Playground mode will be following tomorrow.
Fortnite is a year old today, and as a nice treat, Playground Mode is coming back tomorrow
Patch 5.10 marks Fortnite’s first birthday, although it’s the anniversary of when the base Fortnite game was released, not the Battle Royale version which everyone plays. That was released in September last year.
Some of the changes include an update to Slurp Juice, which now gives 75 points (2hp/s), prioritising HP first. If HP is full then it will go onto your Shield.
A new SMG is coming too, according to the in-game news feed. The ‘Compact SMG’ with epic and legendary rarity should be great for up close and personal fights. If you’re wondering which real life weapon the Compact SMG is modelled after, it looks very similar to the P90.
It’s one of the replacements for the old Tactical SMG, which Epic Games recently removed from the game.
Short range combat is often dominated by the shotguns in the game, due to their high damage and reasonably large spread. It appears as though Epic is trying to increase the amount of variety.
Some of this could be stemming from the professional play that has been getting more and more popular recently with the introduction of the Summer Skirmish tournaments. We’re getting to see how Fortnite’s best players play, and new additions to the game could be focused on improving the watchability.
As for Playground mode, it had a rocky start to life after its release on June 27. It had to be taken down almost immediately. It then made a return earlier this month, before being taken down once again.
This time around, we’re getting more features added to Playground. Previously, Epic has said it’s going to include 1v1 and 2v2 options, the ability to edit other player’s structures, being able to damage enemies with the pickaxe, and your teammates should be highlighted on the map.
Epic hasn’t yet confirmed whether all of this will be in the latest edition of Playground, but either way, fans will be pleased they can once again start practicing the game and play around with the mechanics with little to no consequences.
