Epic Games has introduced the Fortnite Creative Builders Challenge, a new event allowing players to have their say on the challenge theme and then vote on maps created by influencer teams. By participating in the challenge, players can earn in-game rewards such as the “Cuddle Cube” and “Lil’ Sweeties.”

The Creative Builders Challenge is divided into three phases. First, players vote on the challenge theme, followed by influencers working with creators to design maps based on the chosen theme. Finally, players play all the maps and cast their vote for their favorite one. The winning map will be announced once all votes are counted.

To participate, players must sign up with their Epic Games account on the challenge website. They can then vote for the challenge theme and receive the in-game “Cuddle Cube” reward. Influencers will have 12 days to create maps with the help of creators, based on the winning theme. Players can then play all the maps using the provided island codes and vote for their favorite, earning the in-game “Lil’ Sweeties” reward. The Creative Builders Challenge winner will be crowned on May 13th.

The challenge is open to individuals aged 13 or older with a valid Epic account. Eligible minors between 13 and the legal age of majority in their jurisdiction must have parental or legal guardian permission to participate. Players with Cabined Accounts are not eligible for the Creative Builders Challenge.

The “Cuddle Cube” in-game cosmetic emote can be earned by signing up for the challenge and voting for the theme from 09:00 am ET on April 17th through 09:00 am ET on April 20th. To earn the “Lil’ Sweeties” in-game cosmetic Pickaxe, players must play all six available maps during the voting phase and vote for their favorite one between 09:00 am ET on May 6th and 09:00 am ET on May 12th.

Both the “Cuddle Cube” emote and “Lil’ Sweeties” Pickaxe rewards will be granted directly to participants’ Epic accounts within three weeks of the challenge’s completion or as reasonably required by Epic.

Players can start choosing their favorite theme from 09:00 am ET on April 17th through 09:00 am ET on April 20th, with map voting taking place from 09:00 am ET on May 6th through 09:00 am ET on May 12th. While players must play all maps to vote, they can only cast a single vote for their preferred map.
