A new in-game message confirms Fortnite's rocket will launch tomorrow

According to popular YouTuber Muselk, not only do you have to be in-game at the time but also at the rocket location to be able to witness the event.

Matchmaking issues and queue times lead to the decision to remove the Playground LTM from the game while developers worked on the various issues. When noon rolled around, the only thing Epic had to say was, "We're continuing to test improvements that are needed to enable the Playground LTM". The reason why Playground mode is so intriguing to players is because it's essentially a sandbox where you can build, explore, and practice fighting to your heart's content. "Once we have confirmed that our testing was successful we will begin gradually rolling servers out to all regions and platforms until it's available to all players". The term means users don't need to make any purchases to get the gaming experience, but games like Fortnite do offer in-game purchases like outfits, characters, tools, and even dance moves so creators can make a profit off of players.

We can (hopefully) still expect the mode to hit today, June 29, but the issues may roll into the weekend.

If you're invested in the game, it sounds like you won't want to miss this.


The mysterious announcement is likely referring to the launch of a missile, which many fans theorise will change the game forever.

The Fortnite Playground Mode, much like 50 v 50 and Final Fight, is now down, pending fixes.

"We're testing all of this now, and we're working hard to get Playgrounds live again as soon as we think it's ready".
