Fortnite stole "Among Us" idea and now they are working together - How to get the new items

The popular imposter mode came into play in Fortnite in 2021. Upon closer inspection, however, it was found that the mode was hard copied from Among Us. Now that the developers of Among Us and Epic Games have exchanged ideas, a cooperation should take place soon and that’s why we’re showing you the items and how to get them.

What was stolen from Fortnite? Not only was the gameplay designed in a similar environment, but the map was also copied. The tasks and sabotage could also be traced back to the deduction game “Among Us”. Gary Porter, a Twitter user, posted a comparison showing how similar the two modes look.

After this dilemma, the developer of Among Us explained on social networks that he would have preferred to enter into an official cooperation than let it get out of hand like this.

Fortnite then answered online itself on Twitter with the “Among Us” tag, asking if they would not like to cooperate.

This has now been realized and many players have been waiting for the items to finally be made available in Fortnite for a long time. We’ll show you what they are and how to get them.
