Fortnite Imposters is pretty much Among Us

Ironically, Epic Games has announced Imposters with the tagline "trust nobody".

Fortnite Imposters is a new mode within the popular game, and players have been quick to notice it plays a lot like Innersloth’s Among Us.

Fortnite Impostors is a mode for a maximum of ten players: eight Agents maintaining The Bridge and two Impostors out to overtake it,” Epic Games said of the new mode on its website.

Mirroring Among Us, the Imposters must do everything in their power to sabotage and eliminate Agents, who in turn are tasked with assignments neccesary to trigger a winning state on their side. Eliminations occur by way of a vote to determine which players have been suss.

Speaking with IGN, Innersloth said it had no input into Fortnite Imposters.

“We didn’t work with Epic on it, although we would have loved to collab, and found out about it the same time as everyone else,” the studio said. “We’ve been working on some really cool collabs with other indie developers that we can hopefully share soon though.”

This isn’t the first time Fortnite has borrowed from other titles. Back in 2019, it borrowed Apex Legends‘ ping system, and Epic itself has faced a number of lawsuits over in-game dances that originated elsewhere. Ironically, Epic Games has announced Imposters with the tagline “trust nobody”.

Fortnite is available on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5 and Switch. On a brighter note, Wonder Woman heads to the game later this week.
