Fortnite Admits Among Us Inspiration

After a great deal of scrutiny, Epic has admitted inspirations from Fortnite’s new Imposter Mode came from Among Us. Imposter Mode is essentially the same gameplay as the indy hit Among Us but far bigger and with far more polish. The news comes from new patch notes on Epic’s site. “v18.20 brings improvements to Impostors, the game mode inspired by Among Us from Innersloth!” the notes read. 

Among Us developer Innersloth never wanted compensation, even admitting the idea is not original but did want to collaborate with Fortnite. Team members took to Twitter to discuss their feelings on the situation.

 

Well, the tides may be turning. After the patch notes were released, a Twitter conversation between the companies began. First Among Us used the eye emoji showing they noticed the shout-out in the notes. After some back and forth, Fortnite says, “Big fans! We never got to talk about how you inspired us. What do you think about working on something fun together sometime?” Among us responded with, “yesssss have ur Agents contact our Crewmates.” Fans replied to the conversation with excitement as two games’ fandoms can finally celebrate together. 

We will discuss the new crossover on the next Geek Freaks News!
