Among Us emulates the feeling of enjoying party games with friends through its gameplay, the premise of which is akin to that of the popular party game “werewolf/mafia”.

With its massive popularity, the community started demanding more from the game: more new roles, and new rules. The devs at InnerSloth had scrapped their work on the sequel to the title in order to add new content to the game. Last year, devs added a new map to the game.

The Nuke mod grants the imposter the power of detonating a nuclear bomb. The impostor has to choose a particular area in the spaceship to set the bomb off in. Note that this particular area can comprise one room or several.

Upon detonating, the bomb gives a certain amount of time to the crewmates to get themselves to safety, all the while not knowing exactly where the Nuke will set off. Not to mention the fact that the nuke will kill all the crewmates present in the chosen area.
