Fortnite's Spy Within Mode Is Basically Among Us

The new mode is based off Fortnite Creative maps.


Fortnite's new mode, The Spy Within, recreates Among Us in the third-person shooter. It's now available in-game as a special limited-time mode. A Twitch stream featuring Sarah Silverman will showcase the mode and Fortnite's Houseparty video chat system today.

The mode is featured in a playlist with several different takes on the murder mystery formula, each made by a different Fortnite creator. The playlist will feature maps from DolphinDom, KKSlider, Bunni_, Wert, Blanky, jstKamui, MackJack, Ritual and Snownymous.

The mode has 10 players broken up into two teams: eight agents and two spies. The agents must try and complete their objectives before getting killed by the spies. The spies need to eliminate agents while remaining undetected. Sound familiar?

A handful of Twitch streamers, including big names like Ninja, Dr Lupo, Timthetatman, and Pokimane, will be streaming the mode using Fortnite's new Houseparty video call feature. They'll be joined by Sarah Silverman, David Dobrik, and few other streamers. The stream is live on Twitch at the time of this writing.

The stream is meant to showcase the new mode and Fortnite's Houseparty video call system that lets players across multiple platforms connect for video chat. The system is currently available on PC, PS5, and PS4. Players who want to use it will also need an iOS or Android phone with the Houseparty app installed.

Fortnite also received a big update today that brought enhancements to next-gen consoles and a new performance mode for lower-end computers.
