Among Us had built quite a huge fanbase over the last year. The 2018 title found a rejuvenated and massive popularity last year, due to its fun, simple, and minimalistic gameplay. However, with huge popularity, the community started demanding more from the game. As a result, we ended up seeing the emergence of quite a huge number of community-made mods in the game that introduce new characters and abilities. And now, after a long wait, developers at InnerSloth are here with a much-awaited update.

The Among Us Airship update has brought not only a new map but also a full art style revamp and more

Before we delve into the others, let us talk about Airship for a while. According to the official announcement from InnerSloth, this one is the biggest map in the game as of now. In addition to this, this new update includes a lot of additions:

  • New tasks including jewel polishing, emptying the trash (wow, fun!), and more
  • The ability to pick the room you start the game in
  • All new areas to explore (or, more likely, get murdered in)
  • Improved mobility with ladders and moving platforms

Furthermore, new free hats will include a heart pin, angry eyebrows, unicorn head, rubber glove, and more. Now you will be looking fresh as you proceed to waste an unfortunate crewmate. But that is not all!
