Among Us – Ver. ???

  • Release date: March 31st 2021 (North America, Europe) / April 1st 2021 (Japan)
  • Patch notes:
  • The 4th map, and the biggest one yet
  • New tasks including jewel polishing, emptying trash (wow fun), and more
  • The ability to pick the room you start in
  • All new areas to explore (or get murdered in)
  • Improved mobility with ladders and moving platforms
  • New free hats including a heart pin, angry eyebrows, unicorn head, rubber glove, and more!
  • Inspired by our other game, The Henry Stickmin Collection
  • Adds an account system
    • Right now it’s focused on reporting and moderation capabilities, but in the future we hope to add a friend system and the ability to transfer your cosmetics between devices.
    • You can only make on account per device – if multiple people are using the same device it’ll be locked for the time being, but we’re planning a hot fix for that soon.
    • You will be able to report if someone in the game is acting inappropriately, including: inappropriate names, inappropriate chat, cheating/hacking, and harassment/misconduct. Consequences can range from temporary to permanent bans (including alternate accounts).
    • Note that reports will be read by people (not bots!) and you will need to provide a reason as to why you are reporting.
    • No linking of multiple accounts yet (Steam account is only on Steam, Epic account is only on Epic, etc.) It’ll be coming soon though.
    • You must create an account to access free chat (without it you will have to use Quick Chat for safety!)
    • You must create an account to freely change your display name. If you do not create an account, there will be randomized names you can choose from.
    • Usernames are not exclusive. Multiple people can have the same username. (So if you take the username “PuffballsUnited”, other people can still use “PuffballsUnited”.)
    • If you are under the minimum age of digital consent in your country (for most countries 13 is the minimum age), you have to get a parent/guardian’s permission to access free chat (which then allows you to create an account), or change your display name.
    • Without an account (or if you’re a minor who doesn’t want to ask your parent/guardian for approval), you can still play via Guest Mode. This locks you to Quick Chat and doesn’t allow you to change your name other than with a randomly generated name.
  • Additional notes: update will be released at 11AM PT / 2PM ET / 7PM BST / 8PM CEST / 3AM JST.

Among Us Nintendo Switch Review

Among Us debuted in 2018 for mobile and PC. This year, however, it became a giant hit thanks to people playing more games during the pandemic and looking for social experiences. The game has a group of players trying to complete tasks while one is secretly a murderous saboteur. It’s up to the non-murderers to figure out who the imposter is.

This is the game’s first release for a console. It will feature cross-play support with other platforms.

Switch Among Us Game

Earlier this year, developer Innersloth was working on a full sequel. When the original Among Us became a huge hit, however, it cancelled Among Us 2 so that it can focus on the first game (and it’s giant base of players). Among Us has become such a hit that it is beginning to attract imitators, with even Fortnite trying to distill its essence into a new experience.
