Love is in the air with Fortnite's latest Creative Mayhem event. But what is it?

If you've logged into Fortnite these past few days, or checked in with the community, you likely would have seen plenty of talk around the game's Creative Mayhem event. Aside from a possible Valentine's Day theme, you might not be privy to much information regarding the content.

Well, Creative Mayhem sees players attempting to speedrun through a Creative map. After submitting their time, players' submissions are then reviewed to determine who qualifies for the main competition. All Fortnite players have a chance to showoff their speedrunning skills, face off against some of their favorite Fortnite influencers, and try to make it to the Global Finals with a grand total of $100,000 up for grabs.

So how does it work, and what do players need to know?
