Fortnite’s Creative mode has allowed players to build a variety of impressive maps for different custom modes, including the popular Escape mode.
Escape tasks players to find their way out of a location by solving a series of puzzles and avoiding dangers that may be included in their path. Some of these maps are to be played solo, while others cater to a small team.
Some of the maps created by the community include a series of levels with challenges that get increasingly more difficult as you proceed.
