But even more interesting is information posted by Fortnite dataminers Two Epic Buddies. Epic Games has finally acknowledged the launching of a missile with an in-game message.

Despite only being available in the game for a couple of days, Epic says it chose to disable Final Fight after listening to the community's feelings on the mode. "Once we have confirmed that our testing was successful we will begin gradually rolling servers out to all regions and platforms until it's available to all players".

"We've since separated the Playground matchmaker from the one that affects the default modes and made large improvements to assist with the number of players".

Resources gathered grant 10x the normal rate. It's been trying to get the mode back up and running over the past few days, but now it won't be playable until next week.

"We're testing all of this now, and we're working hard to get Playgrounds live again as soon as we think it's ready".
