The Fortnite Champion Series is combining with the game's Creative mode for a new kind of competition fueled by player-made creations.

The FNCS All-Star showdown is running from June 11 through June 26, and will pit the top players on maps made by Creative mode users like ImmatureGamer, Enigma, and Dummblond. A cool $3 million prize pool is on the line, too.

Frankly, as someone who believes that Fortnite's Creative mode is a genuinely awesome tool (and it'll get even better when Unreal Engine support gets added), this feels like an awesome to expand the fanbase beyond battle royale. Epic is doing the smart thing by letting regular players access all these Creative mode maps themselves. You can also check out PC Gamer's favorite Fortnite Creative codes here.

Here's a roundup of the different kinds of competitions players will be entering.

Blueprint Battle (June 23): Players will need to edit a course full of obstacles faster than anyone else. It's destruction, without the weapons. CODE: 3840-8537-4348

Bullseye Bonanza: (June 23): Players will have to progress through a map by shooting targets in quick succession. CODE: 9420-6335-1309

High Tier (June 24): It's a downward race, and players will have to use all the fancy building techniques that schlubs like me don't even know the names for. "Tunneling, cranking 90s, and waterfalling" for example. I've never felt older. CODE: 3947-8128-3885

Play for Keeps (June 25): It's a 3v3 mode with the top four teams in each region, but with no building abilities. CODE: 5892-6942-6261

All-Star Trickshot: A map designed for free play, where you can goof off to your heart's content and capture some gameplay clips. CODE: 5332-3250-5319
