Fortnite’s Playground mode is disappearing just as quickly as it appeared.

Epic Games added a post on Reddit first announcing the change. According to the post, this update comes so that the developers can revise the next version of Playground mode.

In addition to improved functionality, the next version of Playground mode will most likely include team selection options, 1v1s and 2v2s, and controller aim assist. It will also allow players the ability to edit other structures, damage enemies with a pickaxe, highlight team members on the map, and create more effective traps.

Playground mode has been a popular feature with fans since it debuted on July 3rd. The relaxed mode gives players one hour on the island to practice building, mastering new weapons,  before they’ll need to take shelter from the storm. Playground mode also lets players loot every gold chest while exploring the island with up to three other friends. Although friendly fire is enabled, players respawn instantly from the battle bus with the chance to drop down anywhere on the island.

Although Epic has not confirmed if the Playground feature will be available again soon, the team did confirm that they’re working on a permanent “creative mode” for the game. Based on the developer feedback, fans might be able to expect a mode similar to Minecraft in the future.

Playground mode will be available until July 12th.
