Fortnite Is Adding Among Us Crewmates As Backpacks

Get ready for a collaboration of Epic proportions as Among Us just announced that it's invading the world of Fortnite in a brand-new team-up. This includes a new Among Us-themed back bling, as well as the Distraction Dance emote.

The official Among Us Twitter revealed the collaboration by sharing a short blog post detailing the new items. This was accompanied by a quick 15-second video that'll give you a taste of the new Distraction Dance emote as one player uses it to…well distract another, leaving them open for attack. It also shows off the new Crewmate back bling that comes in a variety of crewmate colors.

The collaboration will run from now until June 9 at 11 AM ET and any player who purchases Among Us from the Epic Games Store (or an Among Us Stars Pack) will receive the back bling and emote for free. Plus, if you already own Among Us, then you can grab any Stars Pack and it will automatically be available to you.

Rumors of this collaboration have been swirling for a while. In fact, prior to the official announcement, several Twitter users posted some leaked images of the items included. Leaker @ShiinaBR shared images of both the back bling and the emote earlier this morning, while @iFireMonkey shared that the back bling will be reactive.

This means that players who get a kill while wearing the bling will hear the impostor kill sound from Among Us. A feature proved true in the announcement video.

There's no word yet on whether Among Us will be including any Fortnite-themed items in the social deduction game. So for now, crewmates and imposters will have to settle for terrorizing and distracting one another in the world of Fortnite.
