Among Us introduced it’s getting a brand new hide-and-search mode, achievements, a brand new map, and tons of cosmetics at Summer Game Fest as we speak.
The hide-and-search mode teaser confirmed one of many recreation’s resident beans roaming with a map with only a small circle of sunshine emitted round it. Only when one other participant was inside that gentle would they be seen, much like when the lights go off within the regular imposter mode we have already got.
You’ll additionally quickly be capable to unlock achievements as you play, which Among Us lacked. The Summer Game Fest teaser confirmed off a “kill five players” achievement for instance, however there’s no phrase on what number of aims you may tick off or how assorted they’ll be.
The smallest bit of information, and I imply that actually not disparagingly, was a couple of new map. The video confirmed only a few pixels value of…one thing. I’m nonetheless attempting to discern whether or not it was a battery or a button or a swap or one thing else totally. But apparently that’s all that might be revealed in the mean time!
There will even be new roles for gamers, together with a sheriff and a scientist, however who is aware of what on earth these roles will truly play within the recreation. It’s additionally unclear if they are going to be restricted to sure modes.
And, after all, we’re getting extra beauty choices. The colours coral, rose, banana, grey, tan, and maroon have been revealed, with the latter two already being proven off on Twitter forward of the announcement. We additionally obtained to see some visor equipment like a bunch of goggles and sun shades, a mustache, and a scar (uncertain the way you get a scar on a visor, although).
Heat has been selecting up across the Innersloth-developed indie hit Among Us. Prior to as we speak’s announcement, the staff has been going at full velocity main into the summer time. Among Us was a recent Epic Games Store freebie, and there’s summer time merch popping out for the sport. Plus, within the greatest inform of extra to return, Innersloth revealed that it employed a brand new individual, which is critical if you understand this brings the variety of staff to 9. Yes, they nonetheless can’t fill a 10-person foyer on their very own, a element famous within the announcement.
Geoff Keighley additionally revealed that the in-game masks of his face will probably be obtainable once more. This time, gamers have been capable of unlock it by watching at the very least 15 minutes of Thursday’s Summer Game Fest Kickoff.
In case you’re unfamiliar, the masks is a photorealistic recreation of Summer Game Fest host Keighley’s face that you simply put on in your little bean imposter/crewmate. It’s somewhat horrifying, certain. But it will get the individuals going, and it gave us a giant trace that we’d see some Among Us information as we speak.
The Among Us Twitter account additionally divulged on June eight that extra participant colours (together with maroon) and different information can be revealed on the occasion, however that was much less thrilling.
On the identical day, Innersloth teased, “Lots coming up this week and next.” Besides Summer Game Fest, the staff is making the rounds with one other gaming pageant, Guerrilla Collective. Guerrilla Collective’s big E3 show takes place on June 12 if you wish to tune in for much more Among Us. It’ll be fascinating to see if and how Innersloth areas out bulletins.
So whereas I, and probably others, have placed on my spacesuit a bit much less since Among Us took over final summer time, I’m guessing it’s time to vent again in.
