On the same day that Among Us makes its way to Nintendo Switch, Epic is including a new limited-time gameplay mode known as The Spy Within. If you’ve played any Werewolf-style game, the broad strokes of the new mode will be familiar.
The new Fortnite “The Spy Within” LTM has arrived, tasking 8 players with trying to whole tasks on a special map while two different players secretly attempt to sabotage their efforts in a game style that is strangely comparable to Among Us.
Each time you begin a new match, you won’t know what side everybody is on. They’ll be two players regarded as spies. Their goal is to put off the different players in the match without drawing suspicion. The eight different people taking section in the game are known as the agents. They have to work collectively to identify the spies, whilst making an attempt to complete a range of other objectives. Where matters get tricky is that the agents can only discuss one another over voice chat when they call a meeting. You’ll be capable to earn some in-game cosmetics, such as a nifty-looking skate deck, by way of finishing the related Spy Within challenge pack.
While it’s only a limited-time mode, it’s hard now not to see The Spy Within as a try by way of Epic to get players to lower back into Fortnite by copying the game everyone’s playing at the moment. The recent Reboot a Friend initiative Epic introduced this week speaks to that same goal. Of course, Fortnite has continually been something of a chameleon in that way.
Before it borrowed from PUBG and became one of the world’s most popular battle royale titles, it was once first-class recognized as a co-op survival game. You don’t last long if you don’t adapt.
