An exact date or time of when players can expect the Playground LTM to become available hasn't been announced.

It remains offline now, with Epic promising an update today.

"We're continuing testing on our matchmaking improvements and are still aiming to open the Playground LTM as soon as we're confident in our improvements", screamed Epic into the numb faces of fans. "Our next update is scheduled for 12pm ET".

The Playground is basically what it sounds like, a sandbox mode where players can get their bearings by playing around in the world of "Fortnite", without competing in any matches.

And their latest update about when is Playground mode coming back to Fortnite has raised hopes the LTM could be re-enabled today.

The 50v50 LTM that's replacing Final Fight will have some new guidelines compared to previous 50v50 game modes.
