The hit multiplayer indie game Among Us will support 15 player lobbies, thanks to a recently announced update.
Unveiled at Microsoft’s Xbox and Bethesda Showcase, the update will expand its maximum amount of players from 10 to 15. The upgrade will also feature new content such as new colours, hats and mobile controller support.
At last week’s Summer Games Fest event, Innersloth also revealed a road map for Among Us, with updates that will roll out over the coming months. Here’s a list of said updates, courtesy of Innersloth’s website:
- A new map – Map 5! Very secret. What’s it gonna be on? Don’t ask me! I’m sworn to secrecy, I’m bad at secrets, and I would like to keep my job.
- Achievements. For anyone who wants to prove they are pros at the game. AKA not me, I’m a very anxious Impostor.
- Account linking between platforms. All your save data and cosmetics, available on your platform of choice.
- New roles and ways to play. VERY SECRET. OR MAYBE I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT’S UP.
- Hide n’ Seek mode. Come out come out wherever you areee.
- Visor cosmetics. Even more ways to fix a ship in style! Yes it may block your vision but at least you’ll be fashionable.
- Consoles (Xbox and PlayStation). I get it, you want to know when. I can’t tell you. I’M SORRY. When I can I will!!
Hopefully, the upcoming Among Us updates signify that the game is here to stay for a little while longer. Previously, the party game’s developers cancelled their plans for a sequel after the original swiftly became a sleeper hit.
The brand new Among Us update is arriving console and PC on the 15th of June 2021. The game will also be heading to Xbox consoles later this year.
