Fortnite players meeting at ‘the rocket’ for tomorrow’s first real time mystery event

We're sorry we haven't been able to get you in the LTM, and we know waiting is the worst.

Fortnite fans waited with bated breath for the Rocket at the Snobby Shores Villain's Lair to launch, and, as previously promised, liftoff occurred at approximately 1:30 p.m. EDT. We are holding the release until next week to continue hammering away this weekend.

We'll update you with any additional information on Monday, July 2.

Epic Games have now confirmed that the Fortnite missile will be hitting on Saturday.

Regardless of previous performance, it's a fresh slate for the remaining nations, but now it's win or go home. Germany's World Cup title defense came crashing down in the most inglorious fashion imaginable on Wednesday.

Introduced as part of yesterday's v4.5 update to Fortnite, Playground is a limited time mode where up to four players are able to drop into a map together, experiment with weapons and building, shoot each other with minimal effect, and basically just learn to play the game better without fearing having to start queuing for a match over again from the start.

While Epic hasn't formally announced what will happen this Saturday, something else has been taking place on the island in recent days, and many Fortnite players suspect that the two are related. Part of Fortnite's longstanding appeal is the weekly updates that bring new guns to try out, new items that affect gameplay and weekly challenges to keep players coming back for more.

Epic explained why it was taken offline shortly after the limited time mode was taken off the game.

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. While the usual servers were back up and running within a few hours, Playground mode has yet to be restored.

"This strained the system, which affected matchmaking times for regular game modes too". You gather resources 10x faster than normal, and there are more llamas and chests to loot.
