After Being Pulled After Its Release, ‘Fortnite’s ‘Playground’ Mode Is Finally Back

Fortnite Season 4

Source: Epic Games / Epic Games

Since its release last week, Fortnite’s Playground Mode got off to a very shaky start resulting in it being quickly snatched down. Epic Games has been keeping fans in the loop with updates as to when Playground Mode will return. We are happy to report, it has begun to roll out but in specific regions.

If you live in Asia, Oceania, and Brazil the Playground LTM is active right now for you to take part in. Don’t worry US Fortnite players you can play too. Since the mode is being rolled back out gradually, if you want to play you will have to take specific steps until its global launch. Here is how you can get in on the action:

  • Login into your Fortnite game as usual and go to the settings option.
  • Once in the settings tab, click on the ‘matchmaking region’ option.
  • Change your location to either Asia or Oceania and boom Playground Mode should be available.

If you don’t see Playground Mode yet after going through the steps, don’t panic a simple restart of the game should fix that issue. The limited event allows players to join up to three free friends for an hour of free-play. You can practice your building or your shooting skills on your friends, and yes friendly fire mode is turned on. So don’t hesitate to use your friends as target practice in while playing. The storm doesn’t begin to close in for 55m and takes an additional 5 minutes to close in.

If you happen to die, you will respawn immediately after putting your right back in the game. If you get killed by the storm, you will not be able to respawn. So go ahead and start building, improving your accuracy and shooting those movies. Remember this mode is only around for a limited time.

‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’ Revealed, New Battle Royale Mode To Rival ‘Fortnite’ & ‘PUBG’

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Reveal

Today (May 17), Treyarch unveiled what they are calling the most in-depth and most engaging Call of Duty experience ever with Black Ops 4.

Rumors have been swirling for months about the latest chapter in the most played series in the Call of Duty franchise, the biggest one being there would be no single-player campaign. Based on the reveal trailer that shows off a revamped multiplayer mode, that indeed seems to be the case.

Instead, Call of Duty’s 200 million plus players on October 12th will be treated to a multiplayer experience that Treyarch promises that will raise the bar. Along with a gritty, grounded and all-out combat experience, Black Ops 4 multiplayer will focus on tactical and player choice.

Treyarch is also looking to take on Fortnite and PUBG (Players Unknown Battleground) with a new one-of-a-kind game mode uniquely exclusive to Black Ops called Blackout. This massive battle royale will include iconic characters and locations from all four Black Ops games and will the feature the biggest map ever built in Call of Duty history. Players will have the option to either team-up or battle solo to engage in the most diverse combat ever that will allow combatants to utilize land, sea and air vehicles.

It wouldn’t be a Call of Duty game if there weren’t a Zombie Mode. Black Ops 4 is promising to deliver the most substantial Zombies Mode ever. On day one, fans will be treated to three fully-featured IXVoyage of Despair and Blood of the Dead in celebration of the fan-favorite mode’s 10-year-anniversary.

Black Ops 4 Zombies will feature more in-depth gameplay, tons of easter eggs and a new feature called Zombie Rush that will streamline gameplay and introduce new challenges to seasoned veterans.

Treyarch also announced it will be co-developing with Beenox while working closely with Blizzard to optimized Black Ops 4 for Battlenet for PC gamers. Black Ops 4 marks the largest development team ever assembled for a Call of Duty title on PC. Here is what players can expect:

“Black Ops 4 on PC will have uncapped framerate, 4K resolution and HDR support for ultra-wide monitors and the ability for players to extensively customize the performance and visual quality for their specific hardware. In addition, players will be able to select from pre-set control options, including options for left-handed players, or fully customize the keyboard and mouse controls to their preference. In addition, Treyarch and Beenox worked closely with the team at Blizzard to incorporate Battle.net’s social systems, security, and server stability into Black Ops 4, to prepare for the release on Battle.net on October 12.”

Black Ops 4 sounds like it’s going to be the biggest title in the franchise ever. This is a massive endeavor for the company, but it’s clear Treyarch is fully confident they have a game that can be even more popular than Fortnite and PUBG.  They have the fans to help pull this off. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is available for pre-order, and as a bonus, you gain access to the upcoming beta for being pro-active.  Checkout the games intense multiplayer reveal trailer below.

Woke Mode: Oakland Raiders’ Marshawn Lynch Sits During National Anthem

Marshawn Lynch might need to change his nickname from Beast Mode to Woke Mode, this after the Oakland Raiders running back remained seated during the playing of the National Anthem. During a preseason contest with the Arizona Cardinals, the 31-year-old NFL star sat on a cooler during the playing of the song but the decision was cleared with his coach, Jack Del Rio.

ESPN reports:

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said he spoke with Lynch after the game and was not aware that he planned to sit.

“[Lynch] said, ‘This is something I’ve done for 11 years. It’s not a form of anything other than me being myself,’” Del Rio said. “I said, ‘So you understand how I feel. I very strongly believe in standing for the national anthem, but I’m going to respect you as a man. You do your thing, and we’ll do ours.’ So that’s a non-issue for me.”

Photos circulated on social media Sunday showing Lynch standing for the anthem during his Seahawks days, including for Super Bowl XLIX.

Raiders quarterback E.J. Manuel said the team supports Lynch, adding the decision was “more of a personal thing” for him.

While Lynch’s seating may or may not be a silent protest, he has mentioned free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick‘s politically-charged stances in the past.
