Fortnite has never shied away from its pop culture references (and stealing things from other creators), so it’s not too surprising that their new mode, Fortnite Impostors, does a bit of both.
The mode is … well, it’s very similar to Among Us: up to ten players are assigned an agent or impostor role, with agents having to complete missions to keep The Bridge running, and impostors trying to win by sabotaging missions, teleporting players and manipulating people into believing they are agents too. Impostors can even complete missions to appear less suspicious.
Of course, voice chat is disabled, but there is still text chat, which will allow you to communicate by emoticons or using the Quick Chat menu, and you can either play with friends only privately or with friends only, or join a full party in public.
Oh, what if you guess who the impostors are? You’ve just called an emergency meeting – uh, “Force Chat”, either by reporting a dead body or by hitting “Chat” mode in the central room. You’ll then need to kick the suspect out of The Bridge, but if he’s actually an agent, you’ve just made the impostors’ job easier.
Agents can win by completing all of their missions or eliminating all impostors, and impostors can win by eliminating all agents.
If you’ve always wanted to play Among Us, but with more dance emotes and less permissions from the original developers, then now is the time: Fortnite Impostors is out today.
Stealing is bad, but what do you think of Fortnite’s less-than-original impostor mode? Let us know in the comments.
