Burned out by Fortnite's battle royale? Try your hand at the game's creative mode World Cup instead

Launched in 2017, "Fortnite" has become one of the most popular games in the world.

(CNN)If Fornite's knock-down, drag-out battle royale style isn't your speed, there's now another way you can get props for your gaming prowess.

The massively popular video game is hosting its first-ever World Cup later this year, and Fortnite developer Epic Games has announced that players will now be able to compete in a category for the game's creative mode, which is a less competitive style of play.
From April 29 to June 7, Fortnite will host five "showcase events." Each week, players will complete a creative challenge and submit their best clip through YouTube.
Fortnite captains will review the submissions and choose the top 15 players to compete in the World Cup Creative on July 26, the game developer said.
    While battle royale is a competitive mode in which players are dropped onto a map and fight multiple opponents until one person or team remains, creative mode allows players to explore the game's building mechanics for a more free-form gaming experience.
    World Cup Creative's prize pool is worth $3 million, while the battle royale competition's stands at a massive $30 million.
      The World Cup tournaments are part of Epic's efforts to continue generating enthusiasm for the multiplayer game and cultural phenomenon.
      The game is free to play, but it makes money from in-game purchases. Fortnite has been so successful that its creator, private startup Epic Games, is now worth $15 billion, according to research firm CB Insights.
