Fortnite has by no means shied away from its popular culture references (and stealing issues from different creators) so it is not vastly stunning that their new mode, Fortnite Impostors, does somewhat little bit of each.
The mode is… properly, it is similar to Amongst Us: as much as ten gamers are assigned both an Agent or Impostor function, with the Brokers having to finish assignments to maintain The Bridge operating, and Impostors making an attempt to win by sabotaging assignments, teleporting gamers, and manipulating folks into considering they’re Brokers, too. Impostors may even full assignments to look much less suspicious.
After all, voice chat is disabled, however there’s nonetheless textual content chat, which can allow you to talk in emotes or through the use of the Fast Chat menu, and you’ll both play with simply buddies in Personal or Buddies Solely, or be a part of a full get together in Public.
Oh, and if you determine who the Impostors are? You simply name an emergency assembly — er, “Pressure a Dialogue”, by both reporting a useless physique or urgent the “Dialogue” mode within the central room. You will then must eject the suspect from The Bridge, but when they’re really an Agent, you have simply made the Impostors’ job simpler.
Brokers can win by finishing all of their assignments or voting out all the Impostors, and Impostors can win by eliminating all the brokers.
In the event you’ve at all times wished to play Amongst Us, however with extra dance emotes, and fewer permission from the unique builders, then now’s the time: Fortnite Impostors is out as we speak.
Stealing is dangerous, however what are your ideas on Fortnite’s less-than-original Impostors mode? Tell us within the feedback.
