Among Us’ journey to the top was similar to Mediatonic’s Fall Guys. Streamers around the world suddenly started playing the Indie games and to say the least, fans loved their chaotic meta. While Fall Guys has witnessed a significant downfall in its user base over the past few months, Among Us is still one of the most-watched/played games on the internet.

InnerSloth is consistently rolling out updates now. They primarily focus on bringing new maps, play styles, and tasks for the players. Hence, it is safe to assume that Among Us will continue its glorious run in 2021 too.

The release of Airship had further aggravated these demands. It is the largest map in the title’s history, and 10 players often struggle to find each other in it.

The developers have finally listened to the community’s feedback, and the next ‘big update’ will introduce 15 player lobbies in the award-winning multiplayer game.

A recent tweet by the game’s official Twitter handle informed the players about the upcoming update.

InnerSloth also planning to improve the art style

The simple graphics and animations in Among Us have always been one of its biggest highlights. From the looks of it, InnerSloth will improve them even further now.

When asked about these improvements, the developers clarified they won’t change the art style drastically. Instead, it will simply be a little cleaner, which will make it easier for them to animate on the backend.
