Epic Games has provided another update regarding the downtime for the new Playground Limited Time Mode in Fortnite: Battle Royale and it is more bad news for those waiting to try it out.

The developers have announced that the downtime will be extended through the weekend, meaning that the mode will not be enabled again until the start of next week at the earliest.

This update was provided via two tweets posted on the official Fortnite Twitter page on June 29th.

We’re still unable to resolve issues preventing the launch of the Playground LTM. We are holding the release until next week to continue hammering away this weekend. We’re sorry we haven’t been able to get you in the LTM, and we know waiting is the worst. 

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

Although Epic mentions July 2nd as the next date for when they will provide additional information, there appears to be no set timetable for when the downtime will actually end and and the mode gets reinstated.

Unfortunately for those who have been eagerly waiting to play the highly anticipated LTM, the initially announced one day delay period has grown further and further ambiguous.

Launched alongside the v4.5 update early on June 27th, the Playground LTM offers players the chance to play alongside their friends and do whatevery they like in a private, low-pressure environment with the full Fortnite map at their disposal.

For full details on the new mode, you can read its description as provided by Epic Games in the v4.5 patch notes here.

Fortnite Baba Yaga skin release date leaked

The release date of Fortnite’s Baba Yaga skin has been leaked ahead of time, and it’s not all that too far away.

With Halloween being just around the corner, Epic Games have activated their annual Fortnitemares celebrations. The yearly event has brought changes to the battle royale island, as well as the ability to play as a shadow while your teammate is still alive in a match. 

Though given its Halloween, and players want to dress in new skins, the devs have brought back some classic looks – including the Skull Trooper – while also releasing some brand new cosmetics like Party Trooper and the Bone Squad.

Yet, one of the spookiest skins, Baba Yaga, is still yet to hit the Item Shop. The skin takes its name and look from the classic eastern European folk tale about a terrifying-looking old woman.

The skin was leaked prior to the recent Fortnitemares update by a number of data miners, though, the wait has been on ever since, with players hoping to see it in the Item Shop.

Well, that wait isn’t going to last all that much longer, as leaker ShiinaBR posted that, according to their reliable source, it will be available as a part of the Item Shop rotation on Monday, October 26. 

In the leaks, the skin is labeled as being ‘Rare’ so, it should set you back around between 1200 and 1600 V Bucks. 

Obviously, while Shiina has posted tonnes of reliable information in the past, the final say, of course, goes to Epic Games and they could very well change their mind and put a different skin in the Item Shop.

That might seem like a bit of an extreme move, changing dates just because one has been leaked, but there are plenty of skins that have been leaked in the past that are still nowhere to be seen.
