In two weeks, the next massive Fortnite Battle Royale event kicks off and features some of the biggest names.
While the World Cup will showcase the best players in the game, the Summer Block Party on June 15th and 16th is dedicated to the mainstream crossover.
Fortnite has crossed into celebrity culture like no game ever has, just last Friday rapper Tory Lanez was on Instagram talking about he was smacking players in Fortnite Fridays.
The Summer Block Party is separated into two parts. First is the Celebrity Pro-Am – which Ninja and Marshmello won last year – and second is the Creative Showdown.
The Celebrity Pro-Am is almost ready to go with athletes like Juju Smith Schuster and Kenneth Faried, musicians like RL Grime and Dillon Francis, and actors like Hannibal Buress and Jimmy O. Yang set to compete.
The Creative Showdown is still being announced and the second group has been decided as Pokimane, Cizzorz and EDM group Lost Kings.
The trio, plus an unannounced Golden Ticket winner, will be competing as the Sunshine Soldiers.
Check out the next team for the #SummerBlockParty Creative Showdown: #SunshineSoldiers!@pokimanelol + @cizzorz + @WeArelostkings + ?— Fortnite (@FortniteGame) June 3, 2019

The only other trio currently announced is CouRage, Loserfruit, and Jordan Fisher who will be representing the Llama Record Company.
There are still six more groups set to be announced and with only 12 days till the start of the event as of this announcement, we can expect a group nearly every day from here on out.
With the 32 celebrities competing in the Celebrity Pro-Am (so far), and the eight blank celebrity spots there will be at least 40 huge names competing.
Tickets are still available for seats around the bowl and start at $35.00 each. You can grab tickets through Ticketmaster if you live close to Inglewood, California or just watch on Twitch, YouTube or Mixer.
Fortnite Creative player recreates iconic Mario Kart track
A talented Fortnite Creative player has recreated an iconic Mario Kart track in the world’s most popular battle royale game.
A seasoned Creative player has brought an unofficial Nintendo collab to Fortnite with their recreation of an iconic Mario Kart track.
Fortnite’s Creative mode is one of the game’s most versatile modes. Sweaty player use it to grind and get batter. Artistic players use Creative to build beautiful and interesting maps. And it’s used by Epic Games to host unique crossover events.
However, players can also create their own game modes in Creative. In fact, some players recreate portions of their favorite games in Fortnite Creative.
That’s the case for Reddit user itsZayowo who recreated an iconic Mario Kart map inside of Fortnite. And you can play on it right now!
Fortnite x Mario Kart Creative map
User itsZayowo posted their recreation of Donut Plains 3 to the r/FortniteCreative subreddit. The near-perfect recreation of the iconic track comes complete with water features, multicolor walls, and hazards.
You can play on the map by using Island Code 9469-2123-7106. If you don’t want to cough up $60 for Mario Kart 8, grab a few friends and hit up this astounding track.
Donut Plains has made an appearance in three Mario Kart games. It first appeared in Super Mario Kart in 1992, and is also in the most recent title Mario Kart 8.
However, the Fortnite Donut Plains 3 map resembles the Super Mario Kart track more than its most recent iteration. While it does miss some ornaments, players can see various Toad statues dotted around the map.

Desert Zone Wars Chapter 2: 1811-9621-1739
Those who have been playing zone wars maps for a long time are probably familiar with Jotapegame’s desert zone wars maps. However, this is the latest installment in the series that incorporates the changes made in Chapter 2. Enjoy the classic desert-themed zone wars with modern weapons and items.

How to earn free Creative Mayhem cosmetics in Fortnite
Fortnite has launched the Creative Mayhem competition, and participants can easily earn two free cosmetic items.
A new creative competition has launched in Fortnite called Creative Mayhem. Players who sign in and participate in the challenge will earn the free Creative Mayhem cosmetics.
Every so often, Fortnite will launch a special creative event. These challenges pit players against one another but not in the same way that the Battle Royale does. Previous creative events have featured community-made obstacle courses and team game modes.
Creative game modes aren’t always favored by the community, so Fortnite throws in a few free cosmetic items to draw players in. These are earned by spending time in the featured game modes, finding hidden objects, and completing challenges.
Unlocking the free Creative Mayhem cosmetics
There are two cosmetic items that players can earn during the Fortnite Creative Mayhem event. The Golden Flopper Spray is earned by visiting creativemayhem.fortnite.com and signing in to your Epic Games account. The spray will be given to the player the next time they launch Fortnite.
Next, players will need to spend 30 minutes on the Creative Mayhem Regional Qualifier map. The code for the map is 1994-6642-9073. After 30 minutes, return to the lobby and you will be rewarded with Piranhas Pickaxe.
The Creative Mayhem map is a parkour obstacle course that times players as they run through it. Players can upload and submit their best runs to the Creative Mayhem website for a chance to move on to the next round. There are also monetary prizes for those who place high enough throughout each round of the competition.
For most players though, free cosmetics will be enough. The Golden Flopper spray is a reminder of the elusive fish, and the dual-wielded pickaxe is a nice addition to any collection. Participating in the event is also a great way for players to learn more about how their characters move and interact with objects.
If this event doesn’t seem too interesting, Fortnite is always cooking up something new for players. The basketball themed event should be here sometime next week. But in the meantime, players should make sure to claim their free Creative Mayhem cosmetics.
