Introducing a New Fortnite Experience: Impostors
Will you ensure the safety of The Bridge or follow in Jones’ footsteps to enforce his demise? Everyone has a role to play Fortnite impostors.
Impostors is a brand new Fortnite experience where players assuming the role of agents aim to maintain order in the top secret installation of IO: The Bridge. An impostor (or two imposters in 8-10 player matches) seeks to disrupt him.
Secure victory as an agent
It is up to the Agents of the Imagined Order to operate The Bridge at full capacity. Take part in unique missions, such as clearing the battle bus, providing storm reports, or smashing buttons on the arcade machine. Be on the lookout for eliminated allies as you complete your missions!
Get your homework done in a hurry, Agent. You never know which dubious impostors lurk in the shadows waiting to strike (or transform into Peely). When you complete your missions, be on the lookout for your eliminated allies. Find the fragment of an ally? Report it! Agents will then be called to the bridge to uproot the impostor.
It is up to the crew to report any suspicious behavior, but be on your guard! Any other agent could pose as an impostor.
Disrupt the flow as an impostor
Who’s up for some chaos? Impostors must do everything in their power to stop the agents from protecting the bridge, before their true identities are revealed. Close homework, get everyone around and even throw a Peely Party! All of these are means by which the impostor can put an end to the agents’ plans.
- Temporarily stop any progress on homework. This will give you more time to take down The Bridge.
- Teleport Players – The good old switcheroo. Move all agents and impostors elsewhere on the bridge. This confusion should be enough to cover your steps.
- Peely Party – For a short time, turn all Agents and Impostors into Peely, so you can blend in with the crowd and go your separate ways !!
Impostors will also have a list of missions they must complete, if they are to gain the trust of the agents; but don’t be too diligent with your work. Completing missions will bring officers closer to accomplishing their goal.
Communication is the key!
Communication is the key to securing a safe bridge, agent. While public voice chat is turned off to keep the game fair, you can still chat with your group in the group chat and use the newly added Emotes and Quick Chat menu to communicate with your fellow agents (or imposters).
Select the “Private” option when queuing in Impostors if you only want to play with your group of friends. This option requires at least four players from your party to start this custom version of Imposters. For the best experience, we recommend a full party of ten or fill your party in a public hall.
Matches of four to seven players will have only one impostor, while eight or more will result in two imposters to disrupt The Bridge. Additionally, you can change your party settings by selecting the gear icon from your friends list. There are a few options here that can allow you to customize the number of players you let into your party.
Eliminate the impostors!
Be sure to have discussions with the group to check on other agents and discuss the impostors’ infiltration efforts. Discussions can be called up by discovering and reporting eliminated agents, or by interacting with the chat panel in the central room of The Bridge. Agents and imposters can communicate with each other through emoticons and the Quick Chat menu. It’s up to officers to ask the hard-hitting questions and blame the right suspect – before they kick them out.
At the end of each discussion, agents and impostors will vote to either kick someone out or ignore the vote. Listen carefully to what your fellow agents are telling you, as they might be trying to cheat on you! If the kicked player was in fact an agent, then the impostors are one step closer to eliminating everyone and taking over the bridge. (To note: Playing with a keyboard plugged into your console? Players using QWERTY keyboards or keyboard shortcuts other than the default will need to join a Fortnite Impostors game to adjust their keyboard shortcut settings for that game mode.)
The fate of the bridge depends on you, the agents (or impostors). Choose wisely in this new mode !!
