Epic Games has officially confirmed the return of the new Playground Limited Time Mode in Fortnite.

The mode was fully reinstated into the game late in the day on July 2nd, and players across all servers now have access.

The news was announced via a post on FortniteBR Reddit page, along with a tweet from Fortnite.

Playground LTM – Available Now!
Success! We’ve completed deploying our servers containing the improved matchmaking changes. All players can now join in on the fun in the Playground LTM.
Please remember to change your region back to “auto select” and verify you’re on your preferred region. There is the possibility that you may encounter an error, as many players are attempting to join this game mode. Just attempt to requeue until you find a match.
We’ll be releasing an in-depth and detailed postmortem in the near future to go over the obstacles that we encountered during the process of trying to enable this Limited Time Mode. But for now, drop in and let your imaginations run wild!

The confirmation that the LTM was back online actually came close to two hours after it had already been enabled in-game.

Earlier on July 2nd, players connected to Asian, Oceanic, and Brazilian servers began reporting that they were able to load into the mode. This was later followed by reports that the mode was available across all servers, despite still no official word from Epic.

Many in the game’s vast player-base will be thrilled and relieved to see the Playgrounds LTM reinstated into the game after its lengthy delay.

It was briefly released as part of the v4.5 game update on June 27th but got disabled nearly two hours later, remaining that way until July 2nd. 

The LTM was highly anticipated because it offers players the chance to play alongside their friends and do whatever they like in a private, low-pressure environment with the full Fortnite map at their disposal. 

We will keep you updated on the developments when Epic provides a full breakdown of what caused the downtime to be extended for so long.

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Chapter 2, Season 4 challenges has arrived and one of the tasks requires you to catch fish at Heart Lake. Here’s what you’ll need to complete this challenge.

The Fortnitemares event is finally underway once again and Midas has returned to take control over the Agency, appearing for the first time in-game since he flooded the island with the Device event in Season 2.

Along with many of the new changes that have been added for the Halloween event, Epic Games has now also released the final week of challenges for players to tackle in-game.

Fortnite players can expect to see plenty of straightforward tasks in Week 10, similar to ones that we have had in previous weeks, but there is one challenge that can be quite frustrating to complete if you don’t know where to go.

While some of the tasks are based around gathering materials or searching chests around the map, Epic have added one which requires you to Catch fish at Heart Lake, a new unnamed location that can be tricky to find.

Here’s what you’ll need to find Heart Lake and complete the weekly fishing challenge.

How to Catch Fish at Heart Lake in Fortnite

  1. Find and loot a Fishing Rod or Harpoon Gun in Fortnite.
  2. Make your way to the lake near the new Stark Industries POI, in Upstate New York.
  3. Catch a fish from the lake using the Fishing Rod or Harpoon.
  4. Repeat this process until you have caught the three fish needed to complete the task.

So, there you have it, once you catch all three fish you should be rewarded with XP to help you complete the Season 4 battle pass. You can also find the rest of the Week 10 tasks on our challenge hub.

Although this is meant to be the final set of challenges, with Fortnite’s v14.50 update on the way next week, it is possible that even more challenges will be added before the season ends.
