GeForce NOW News: Fortnite Rips Off Among Us, GFN Rewards, Release Highlights & 9 More Games

This week's GeForce NOW news brings us Fortnite's new game mode which rips off Among Us. GFN Rewards for Eternal Return players. Version 2.0.33 release highlights & nine more games including 4 day & date releases.




Fortnite Blatantly Rips Off Among Us


The new “Imposters” mode was released on August 17th and you can play in matches between four and ten players of Agents versus Imposters on a brand new map called - The Bridge. Agents win by completing minigame assignments to fill their progress bar or revealing all Impostors hiding among the team by calling discussions and voting out suspicious behaviour. While keeping their identity a secret, up to two Impostors will seek to eliminate enough Agents to overtake The Bridge. They can hide their status by completing assignments, which will benefit the progress of the Agent team and have sneaky sabotage abilities to create chaos.


I know what you’re all thinking, yes this is exactly what Among Us plays out like and yes Fortnite has ripped them off big time with this new game mode. To the point where I don’t even have any words to describe such shithousery.
