A Fortnite x Among Us collaboration has launched with a new Back Bling and the 'Distraction Dance' Emote for a limited time. Additionally, some new Among Us VR gameplay has been revealed.
Fortnite and Among Us has had a somewhat shaky relationship in the past. Back in 2020, Fortnite launched The Spy Within LTM -- a game mode that is suspiciously similar to the standard Among Us gameplay. It looks like these two franchises have decided to play nice with the addition of some new Among Us Fortnite items that you can get right now.

How to Get the Fortnite x Among Us Items
You can get the new Fortnite x Among Us items through one of two methods according to a F.A.Q. on the Epic Games Store (via Ryan Brown on Twitter):
- Purchase Among Us on the Epic Games Store
- Purchase an Among Us Stars Pack on the Epic Games Store
As shown in the above tweet from ShiinaBR (which also provides our header image), a Crewmate Back Bling is available in a total of ten colors. Furthermore, Fortnite players will also get the "Distraction Dance" emote which is also shown in the same tweet.
The Fortnite x Among Us items will be available from now until June 3, 2023, at 11:00 AM Eastern Time. That's not the only Among Us news today, though -- we've also gotten a longer look at some gameplay for the VR version.
New Among Us VR Gameplay Looks Great
Aside from the Fortnite collab, Innersloth was also able to reveal a new Among Us VR gameplay trailer (via Reddit). This trailer shows off a few of the tasks you can complete in VR, Emergency Meetings, and more, all done in the quirky comedy style that we've come to know and love.
You can look forward to this game coming to PC and Meta Quest later this year. For now, you can add Among Us VR to your wishlist on Steam or to your wishlist on the Meta Quest Store. Don't forget about that sweet Fortnite collab, either -- you can score some cool Fortnite cosmetics by buying Among Us or an Among Us Star Pack on the Epic Games Store before July 9, 2023, at 11:00 AM Eastern Time.
