EPIC games announced on Reddit today that there will come some changes to the Playground.
The LTM Playground will go offline on July 12 to update the game for the next version of Playground.
Players can look forward to be able to team up with friends and fight against each other in the future update.
On Reddit they wrote:
For the next version of Playground we’re hoping to include functionality that would allow team selection options within the Playground itself. Here’s a few things you would gain with the ability to select teams:
1v1s and 2v2s
Aim assist for controllers
Editing other player’s structures
Traps affecting teammates/enemies correctly
Highlighting teammates on the map
Damaging enemies with your pickaxe
The Playground LTM represents our first step into what a full creative mode looks like in Fortnite. And remember, you will have until the release of v5.0 to access your Playground LTM replays.
