Accounts

We had all been looking forward to creating accounts in the game. With this additional feature, now players can add people on their list as friends and play with them. Additionally, this feature will also help the game to weed out disruptive players from the game. In other words, if you are a trouble-maker within the game, players can easily report you and show you the door.

Languages

InnerSloth is also looking to localize this popular party game. Therefore, this update will also include different language options, such as German, Dutch, and Russian, to name a few. They have also announced that they will add more languages, but for now, their key priority is to create accounts for players.

Removal of ads

Anybody who has played Among Us knows the inappropriate ads that appear in-between games. Many people have reported and even paid money for their removal. As a result, InnerSloth has announced that they have removed all ads from the game till 2021.

“Think of it as a small thank you for all the support you’ve given us.”

New Map

InnerSloth dropped a trailer giving a sneak peek into the new map on the official Among Us Twitter handle. We can hope to receive a release date at The Game Awards.
