Playground Mode in Fortnite returning to Switch tomorrow

Test your building skills in a safe space with friends

Fornite's 4.5 patch brought the new Playground Mode to Nintendo Switch, enabling players to join their friends in a map that's not constrained by the traditional Battle Royale rules. This gives players new to the game a chance to learn the building mechanics without being in high pressure situations.

Only a couple hours after the launch of the new mode, Epic decided to pull it from the game due to excessive queue times and error messages that made it a nightmare to get started. Epic decided to pull the mode while it found a workaround.

Patch 5.10 for Fortnite is slated to launch tomorrow on all platforms and with it will come the return of Playground mode. Epic will release the full patch notes tomorrow. Are you looking forward to the return of Playground mode?
