Fortnite x Among Us collaboration brings exclusive in-game items, including an emote
According to the official announcement, the collaboration will bring exclusive in-game items to the Among Us franchise. It will include an emote and back bling. The emote is called the Distraction Dance and is from the Henry Stickmin Collection. The other item is a Crewmate Back Bling which comes in a set of the crewmate colors in Among Us. The colors are red, blue, green, pink, orange, black, white, yellow, brown, and purple.
Fortnite players who purchase Among Us or Among Us Stars packs from the Epic Games Store between June 9, 2022, to June 9, 2023, will receive the back bling and emote devoid of any additional charges. Players who have already purchased Among Us beforehand can buy a Stars pack and the items will be automatically transferred to the player account in Fortnite.
Fortnite keeps on doing amazing collaborations
Fortnite has always been the game to get the biggest collaborations with pop culture franchises or the game which invests the most into cosmetic items. In the past, we have got collaborations with Avengers: Infinity War, Spider-Man, Naruto, and other popular media.
However, on the downside, players have often complained that the game developers are way too inclined to make visual and cosmetic changes in the game rather than gameplay revamps and new events. Thus, this collaboration across all platforms will be yet another test to see if the game meets the player’s expectations.
