Fortnite Missile Launch Event, Watch Here

Fortnite Playground mode LTM

The 50v50 LTM that's replacing Final Fight will have some new guidelines compared to previous 50v50 game modes. Fortnite's Season 5 setup isn't coming for another two weeks, so the rocket launch probably won't do much at all other than launch into the sky, but it's going to be one of those moments you wish you were around for instead of doing other stuff all day. We are holding the release until next week to continue hammering away this weekend. Today, Epic posted a thread to Reddit that said it was still working to resolve the issues and that it would have another update at 12:00 PM Eastern.

Fortnite is already among the most popular games on the planet and it's no surprise Epic Games has a new event to keep the game interesting.

The new mode of play was removed Wednesday to the chagrin of many players.

As of this writing, we have just under 24 hours until launch.

The Final Fight game mode forced teams to travel to a third and final circle, where the storm was halted and a countdown clock began.

Based on the teases so far, Fortnite's next season to be heralded by the launch of rocket in the evil lair near Snobby Shores, and Epic wants to make sure you don't miss the occasion.

Whatever the fate of the missile, hundreds of players will no doubt record the one-time launch for those of us who aren't online at the right time.

Resources gathered grant 10x the normal rate.

It's likely that when the developer finally gets Playground up and running, we'll see the mode extended beyond it's originally scheduled downtime thanks to the delays it's seen.

"This strained the system, which affected matchmaking times for regular game modes too".
