The new store will now contain hats, skins, pets, visors, nameplate panels, and many new cosmetics. The game will now reward players with XPs, pods, and beans as they keep playing. Beans are the in-game currency that can be obtained by playing games or using real-life money. Beans can be used to unlock store items.

The player roles are quite interesting updates that will add up more thrill to the game. Four roles- Engineer, Scientist, Guardian Angel, and Shapeshifter were added in this update, which provide players with unique abilities. Scientists can access vitals at any point in the game thus helping crewmates to complete tasks. Engineers have the ability to use vents at any given point in the game. And the Guardian Angel might be the most useful in crucial moments. They can use a protective shield on the remaining Crewmates.

The most interesting role here has got to be the Shapeshifter, which allows the imposter to disguise themselves as other crewmates. Inner Sloth has offered details on this update on their official blog.

This update might bring a much-needed twist to the game, adding many thrills for players.
