Fortnite’s Playground Mode has been through something of a rough patch, initially releasing last week only to be taken back down almost instantly.
Since then, Epic Games has been faithfully updated fans about the limited-time mode’s return. Now, at long last, Playground Mode is begin rolled out in certain regions.
As of right now, Asia, Oceania, and Brazil are the only regions where the Playground LTM is active. However, it’s very simple to get into a Playground match simply by fudging the region you’re playing in.
Note: Since this is rolling out across various regions, this could change at the minute. It could go live globally and then all you have to do is choose that mode and get playing. Until that happens, here’s how to get into a different region.
- Simply log in to your game as you always do, then go to Settings.
- In the very first Settings tab right at the top, you’ll see a ‘matchmaking region’ option. (For the longest time, mine was default set to Asia. Go figure.)
- Now all you have to do is switch your region to Asia or Oceania, and voila! You’re ready to hop in and start playing around.
Once you do this, Playground Mode should show up where you select what type of game you’re playing, just to the right of 50 vs 50. If it doesn’t, simply restart your game and you should be good to go.

In any case, have fun practicing your building, shooting movies (to win the latest Fortnite contest!) or just practicing your aim. All of these things should help you step up your game back in the more combative modes.
