FaZe Clan has announced it is running a tournament for the extremely popular title, Among Us. The tournament has been humorously dubbed the ‘Among Us In-Vent-Ational’ and is planned to run for one day on October 19 at 14:00 PT / 22:00 BST.
There are 40 spaces in total open for content creators, streamers, and celebrities. So far, confirmed participants include, Yousef ‘FaZe Apex’ Abdelfattah, Josue ‘FaZe Sway’ Sway, and LeBron James’ son, LeBron ‘FaZe Bronny’ James Jr. with more competitors to be announced shortly. Each player will have extra incentive with a cash prize of $25,000 on the line.
The tournament will be a solo competitor game which will create a free-for-all environment among players where no one can be trusted and everyone is sus. FaZe Clan will air the Among Us In-Vent-Ational livestream on their official YouTube and Twitch channels, and to reward viewers for tuning in FaZe Clan merchandise will be given out to selected lucky viewers.
With the recent Among Us Steam beta allowing players to vote anonymously and without a taskbar, competitors will find it much easier to fake tasks and vote strategically.
