    Did Fornite: Impostors copy Among Us?
    19-08-21

    Fortnite: Impostors is a new game mode that rolled out on August 17th 2021, one that might sound a bit familiar to anyone who’s played Among Us (one of the other incredibly popular online games right now).

    Fortnite Impostors sees 10 players, eight agents and two impostors play out their roles on a submarine. Like in Among Us, the agents carry out routine assignments, while the impostors sabotage the facility and eliminate players. Impostors can also teleport players to cover their tracks and disable assignments.

    In other words: it’s a Fortnite version of Among Us, with the serial numbers lightly filed off. There are a few differences, of course: everything has been decked out in a Fortnite-themed veneer, with tasks like fixing the Battle Bus or preparing llama supply drops. Impostors don’t kill players, but teleport them away into a rift.

    As news of the new mode spread online, some of the people behind Among Us expressed their disappointment on social media. Innersloth's lead Unity programmer, Adriel Wallick, expressed her disappointment via Twitter:

    Gary Porter, a developer for Among Us, also pointed out the similarities between the map that Fortnite uses and Among Us. “It’s okay though they flipped electrical and medbay and connected security to the cafeteria,” joked Porter on Twitter. “I wasn’t even around for the development of Skeld [the first Among Us map] and I’m still kind of offended.” He also tweeted:

    @Walter I have a feeling we would be betraying Among Us 🤣

    Thanks for the tag @Tamara - saw the news earlier this week. Disgusting but unsurprising move with this franchise. Started out as a tower defence game, saw PUBG was doing so well so completely ripped them off. Now we can't move for battle royale games. Oh look, among us is doing amazingly well and no one gives a toss about fortnite anymore? Let's rip them off next.

    Epic continue to disappoint me - UE5 may look amazing but it's getting delayed all the time. This is why I stick with Unity.

    @Tamara quite controversial indeed. I might try Impostors, just out of curiosity, but Among Us will always be my favourite. I have good memories playing with my sisters during the worst of the lockdown, and it really helped us to stay in touch.

    @Raine I agree, definitely not the first time they do this! Among Us developers were so disappointed😥

    @Paty it's definitely worth trying but I'm pretty sure there will be nothing like Among Us - the original😅
