Fortnite New Impostors Mode Is An Among Us Imitation

Impostors is a new Fortnite mode that may seem familiar to anybody who has played Among Us. Fortnite has recently been on a roll, with a variety of community modes and innovations being highlighted. Other games will find it tough to compete against the game since it was developed from the ground up to be able to add new features at any moment. Some people, though, have discovered a way to stand apart.

Following the unexpected success of Among Us in 2020, several developers and other businesses sought to cash in on the trend. There were a flood of knockoffs on the market. Toys and other collectibles from Among Us were available in shops. Other AAA games tried to hop on the bandwagon as well. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War debuted its “Double Agent” option earlier this year, which is identical to Among Us but in an FPS format.

According to the official website, Fortnite is now attempting to enter the social deduction genre. Each game in “Impostors Mode” has 10 players: two Impostors and eight Agents. The Agents are in charge of safeguarding The Bridge, while the Impostors are entrusted with sabotaging it. Players can start a “Discussion” to filter out Impostors and eliminate genuine Agents. The game mode is now playable.

Each position has its own set of skills and demands. Certain tasks must be completed by agents. Repairing the Battle Bus to providing reports are just a few examples. They must also be mindful of any comrades who have been eliminated.

These obliterations are, of course, the work of Impostors. Disguising as Peely, deactivating assignments, and even teleporting other players are among his other powers. Agents win when all Impostors are identified or all tasks are completed, similar to the gameplay of Among Us. Impostors, on the other hand, declare triumph after eliminating the Agents. Public voice chat is disabled, as one might anticipate. Party chat, emoting, and Quick Chat, on the other hand, will continue to work.

Even down to the vocabulary, it’s all extremely reminiscent of Among Us. Furthermore, the announcement’s usage of the same vocabulary and general tone makes it apparent that Fortnite is in on the joke.

Imitation, on the other hand, isn’t always a bad thing. Innersloth may be impressed by the copying, which is the ultimate form of flattery. The studio is also no stranger to making references to Among Us. Impostors Mode, on the other hand, has its own original ideas, such as teleporting players.

Nonetheless, others may find it “sus” that one of the most important games in recent years has reduced to such pandering. Fortnite is credited for starting the Battle Royale trend, which has since been imitated by numerous games.

Rumors of a Fortnite-Among Us crossover were also denied lately, making this mode feel much too current. Impostors Mode, on the other hand, might carve out its own niche with unique mechanics and story justification. Although it is unlikely to surpass the most popular game modes in terms of popularity, players should keep an eye on this option – and their teammates.
