Fortnite just lost its popular Among Us-inspired Impostors mode and fans aren’t happy.
In Chapter 2 Season 7, Fortnite added what would turn out to be one of its most popular game modes of all time. Fortnite Impostors was brought about by the popularity of Among Us, a game that pitted a ship full of Crewmates against the deadly Impostors.
The ‘trust nobody’ gameplay became a viral hit, and it wasn’t long before more Among Us-style games began taking off. And at the height of the game’s popularity, Epic Games added a very similar mode to Fortnite Battle Royale.
However, after having the mode available ever since it launched, Fortnite Impostors is now missing in action for the first time. And many fans of the mode are already calling for its return.
Fortnite Impostors was one of the best ways to earn XP and level up for several seasons. Thankfully, we’ve got a few more tips and tricks to help you finish your Battle Pass in Fortnite now that it’s gone.
Fans Call for Impostors Mode to Come Back to Fortnite
Just hours after the game mode left the Battle Royale, Fortnite fans are calling for Impostors to return.
“Good modes get taken out while god awful Party Royale stays forever,” Reddit user Tony_BasQue writes.
But some players seem to be more understanding about the game mode’s disappearance.
“I saw it coming,” J-TheGreat admits. “I liked playing it at times but the teaming was getting out of hand.”
Given that players could enter the mode as a party, some users would work together with their friends, effectively defeating the point of the game mode altogether.
Why Is Impostors Gone From Fortnite?
According to Epic Games, Impostors is being vaulted as their team shifts focus to “other Fortnite projects.”
However, a number of Impostors Prefabs and Galleries have been added to Creative mode to allow players to create their own experiences with the assets.
And though Impostors may be gone for now, the mode’s removal does make room for some new additions. Here’s how to complete all the new Fortnite Fall Fest quests for some free rewards!
Plus the latest update also hints at VR support coming to Fortnite soon. Sadly, this would have been a perfect addition to Impostors, so we can only hope it returns one day.
