There are no details on how these might work. But let’s hope this will be explained in the coming days.

How to play?

To play the Hide and Seek mode, you will need a fully cooperative playgroup. This particular game mode can not be enforced through the rules of the game. The game needs to have a single imposter, who will announce their role at the beginning of the game itself.

To announce their role, the imposter can call in an emergency meeting. After this the imposter needs give a countdown to other players. And before you start searching for other members in the game, you  need to announce “ready or not, here I come” and then begin the seeking.

The Among Us Hide and Seek mode is not at all about discovering the imposter. On the contrary, it’s about being the best at hiding. The game lasts till only one crew member remains or till the game stops and says that the imposter wins.
