Among Us — the popular mobile video game based around a whodunnit mystery — will be expanding to allow more players to play at once.
What is the latest on Among Us?
New Among Us lobbies
In Among Us, players join together in a lobby and compete in a whodunnit mystery game. Normally, the game will put 10 players together, and two will be selected as imposters, who are tasked with killing others on board.
- Now, three imposters will be chosen out of 15 players in a single lobby.
New Among Us colors
The company also announced it will add new colors for its character skins — called beans. The new colors include banana, tan, rose, coral, maroon and gray.
Among Us update
As I wrote for the Deseret News, Among Us became a widely popular game during the coronavirus pandemic. The game has had more than 500 million users across the world. This has led to a slow rollout of updates for the developers.
- “When a game becomes unexpectedly popular it’s great, but it brings a whole slew of other problems we were extremely new to,” the company said in a blog post. “That being said, we’re extremely grateful for all of the success we’ve found.”
