Among Us – Ver. 2024.6.18

  • Release date: June 18th 2024 (North America, Europe) / June 19th 2024 (Japan)
  • Patch notes:
New Crewmate Role – Tracker
  • Grab your bandana or maybe a shrub to hide behind as you keep tabs on a Crewmate. The Tracker has the ability to well… track a Crewmate’s location via the map for a limited amount of time. Catch those Impostors in a lie about where they’ve been and save the crew – or not…
New Crewmate Role – Noisemaker
  • AAaaaAaAAAaaaAHHHhhh No, the Noisemaker doesn’t actually sound like that, but they do sound off when they become the poor victim of an Impostor kill. There’s also a visual indicator of their death that appears on screen so your fellow Crewmates can run to catch the Impostor red handed (even if it’s not Red).
New Impostor Role – Phantom
  • If you’ve ever wanted to just up and disappear when you’re the Impostor, I have great news. Our new Impostor role, the Phantom, has the ability to turn invisible! Want to escape after the perfect kill? Activate your ability and sneak right by those dum Crewmates. Just remember it’s for a limited time so plan your escapes and appearances well!
Lobby Settings
  • When you spawn in the lobby you’ll notice that there’s a big empty space where the lobby settings used to be! Our user interface expert, Lucy, worked really hard with our programmers to make the settings look beautiful and only a button click away. The right side of the screen now has a menu to clearly display the room code, map, number of Crewmates, privacy, and game setting presets – more on that later.
  • When you’re a Crewmate waiting for the host, you’ll be able to view the settings that are applied by selecting ‘View‘ to pop out a handy overview menu so you can see what the host has set up.
  • If you’re the host, you’ll have a slightly different menu to tweak and dial in the settings for the next round when you select the ‘Edit‘ button.

Game Presets:

  • Core Settings – for those looking for a classic Among Us feel with no extra roles. Just you, your fellow Crewmates, and some Impostors.
  • Roles Galore – for those looking to spice up their lobbies by adding in roles to the mix (mmmmm, rolls). You can set the chances of the Tracker, Engineer, Scientist, Guardian Angel, Shapeshifter, and Phantom to be in the game.

Game Presets for Hide N Seek:

  • Pitch Dark – for those courageous Crewmates who want to hide in the darkness without a flashlight.
  • Flashlights – for those who like shining the light on things… like your Crewmates killed by the Seeker.
Patch Notes
  • The Fungle – Crewmates wont be stuck in the ladder climb animation if a Mushroom Mixup happens while climbing a ladder
  • Shapeshifters who are climbing a ladder when a meeting is called will no longer get stuck in the climbing animation
  • Airship and The Fungle as Shapeshifter – The Shapeshift duration timer now counts down correctly under all conditions
  • Classic and Hide N Seek – Desolation of Skeld Pet will now appear in the actual game and not guard their hoard in the dropship
  • Quick Chat – Text in the chat field will have the same colors as the quick chat builder
  • iOS – The “Pending Account Deletion” message is no longer hidden by the Friend List bar
  • Child Accounts that become old enough to be full accounts will now receive permissions correctly
  • Scientist – The battery duration timer is is no longer blocked by the settings icon on some resolution settings

Known issues

  • Lobby – Lobby updates may be shown with the incorrect icon and color under certain conditions
  • Lobby – Controller buttons may overlap the Game Settings update text when opening certain menus
  • Lobby – Description text may flicker when opening and closing the edit window
  • Skeld/Polus – A controller button icon may show up during Inspect Sample task Part 1 when not using a controller

  • Additional notes: this update is not compatible with older versions of the game.

Patch Notes

The team has been swatting mosquitos and other in-game bugs that may have been impacting your time in The Fungle or Among Us experience in general. Here are a few items that have been fixed:

  • [The Fungle] – Mushroom Mixup sabotage now randomizes skins
  • [The Fungle] – Some layering and animations have been fixed

  • [The Fungle] – The Zipline SFX no longer plays continuously if a Crewmate is on it when a meeting is called
  • [The Fungle] – Campire SFX no longer plays during the intro sequence. Save the fire for the Impostors 🔥

Among Us – Ver. 2023.10.24

  • Release date: October 24th 2023 (North America, Europe) / October 25th 2023 (Japan)
  • Patch notes:

Work with your fellow Crewmates to repair the communication channels after crashing into a deserted island! But it’s never that easy is it? Crewmate life is full of dread and chaos.

Deal with an all new sabotage, fix the old ones, and figure out who the Impostors are before you become on of their victims! I wouldn’t stand so close to that vent if I were you…There’s a boatload of new tasks for you to try too like:

  • Playing frisbee
  • Fishing
  • Roasting marshmallows
  • Lifting weights
  • Many more!

There are a ton of other surprises for you to find here – hope you like ziplines and the new ejection animation. And don’t worry, if social deduction isn’t your thing, The Fungle is also great for Hide n Seek mode!


What would a brand new map be without some brand new cosmetics? There’s a ton of fresh and Fungle combinations in the shop for those of you saving up beans and a Fungle Cosmicube for 70 Stars.

Because they were in such a pinch, the Crewmates opted for a crustacean layout for the new Cosmicube! There’s plenty to get hooked on. I’m a big fan of the bucket hat personally, but I’ve seen how feral you’ve been for the crab!

Patch Notes
  • Chat box will be selected when opening it in Free Chat – no more needing to click and then type!
  • Tweaks to audio files which should reduce load times on lower end devices

  • Pets of dead players will no longer sit idle – they’ll go back to being heartbroken that you’re dead
  • Guardian Angels can no longer protect Crewmates during Comms Sabotage
  • When creating or finding a game, Impostor count no longer defaults to 3
Known issues
  • [Fungle] – The sound effects for the zipline may play continuously if a meeting is called while a player is on the zipline.
  • [Fungle] – The campfire sound effect may play during a game’s intro sequence.
  • [Fungle] – Invisible collision may block player movement around the Labs.
  • [Fungle] – The map label for the dock may not be correctly displayed at times.
  • [Fungle] – The orange fish may be caught at a much higher rate than the others during the fishing task.

Among Us – Ver. 2023.3.28

  • Release date: March 28th 2023 (North America, Europe) / March 29th 2023 (Japan)
  • Patch notes:
Fun Stuff
  • New Cosmetics! Check out the in-game store for several new cosmetics including hats, nameplates, and visor. Better yet, they’ll only cost BEANS! And lucky you – an Impostor sabotaged some of the pricing on the nameplates so they’re cheaper than they should be. We’ll get that fixed up in the next update but for now, enjoy!
  • APRIL FOOLS DAY IS COMING. Can you hear it? The sounds of hooves echoing in the halls of the Skeld and across the alien landscape of Polus? That’s right – an improved Horse Mode is returning for April Fool’s from March 31 – April 2! That’s a whole weekend of HORSE! In case you missed it last year, we turned all the Crewmates into Horsemates. That’s it. It started from a joke tweet we made 2 years ago and spiraled wildly out of control because we laughed wayyyy too much at the idea of it. The best part? We’ve added a whole new Horse Wrangling mode to it… AKA Hide n Seek mode will turn into a horse-y surprise. Make sure to check back around April Fools to see what we have planned.
Patch Notes

  • [All Modes] – Players will no longer see lobbies mixed with assets from the Skeld

Among Us – Ver. 2022.12.8

  • Release date: December 9th 2022 (North America, Europe) / December10th 2022 (Japan)
  • Patch notes:
  • Adds a new game mode: Hide ‘n Seek
    • If you’re a Crewmate, your goal is to complete tasks to run down the timer and survive until the time is up to win. If you’re the Impostor, your goal is to eliminate all the Crewmates!
    • Do tasks – they make the timer go down faster.
    • Watch your danger meter! If the Impostor is far away, the danger meter will be empty. The closer an Impostor is, the more the bar will fill up (red means they’re REALLY close) and the louder the music gets! Crewmates get a limited number of vents in this mode, so use them wisely to escape.
    • FINAL HIDE! These are the last few moments of the game where the Impostor gets a power boost, special Seek map, and a directional ping to where any surviving Crewmates are. CRYING. SCREAMING. TERRIFIED.
    • Show Names options. There’s a new setting only for Hide n Seek called “Show Names”. This shows usernames above the heads of players. Turning this off can make it more difficult for Impostors to find Crewmates if they are hiding behind certain objects!
    • Choose the Impostor (private lobbies only). You can pick who the Impostor is via a player’s username or select “Round-robin” and let the game cycle through the players who are it. Choosing Impostors is only for private games so hosts can’t abuse this in public lobbies!
    • Flashlight Mode. If set to “On”, Flashlight Mode will be activated and all players will have to control a cone of vision. If set to “Off”, all players will have radial vision (they will be able to see in a circle around them.)
Other Notable Changes: 
  • New game filter options 
    • When looking for public lobbies or creating one, you are now required to designate what kind of lobby it is. Currently, there are four options: 
      • Beginner: Best for new players.
      • Casual: Best for players just looking to have fun and not take the game too seriously.
      • Serious: Best for players looking to win and play more deliberately.
      • Expert: Best for players who know Among Us well.
    • Note: Filters will display with the exact options chosen. E.g. “Beginner” and “Serious” will find you lobbies tagged as BOTH those items. It will NOT list lobbies listed as only “Beginner” or “Serious”.
  • Pet your pets! You can now pet your lovable companions in-game and in lobbies. Stand near your pet and hold down the button to pet them. 
  • New Haunt button. Died? Wish you could track your friends or enemies easier to watch the end of the game? Our handy new Haunt button for ghosts allows you to do just that. Track any alive Crewmate, Impostor, or haunt your fellow ghosts!

  • more cosmetics can now be bought with beans
  • adds a nugget pet
  • nowflake and Snowbean Cosmicubes are back until January 1st

Among Us – Ver. 2022.3.29

  • Release date: March 31st 2022 (North America, Europe) / April 1st 2022 (Japan)
  • Patch notes:
Friends List 

Here are all the Friends List features you can expect from this free update, v2022.3.29 on all platforms: 

  • A unique friend code  
  • Ability to send and receive friend requests (duh)  
  • Invite friends to your own lobby  
  • See who you recently played with  
  • Ability to block players 
  • Ability to show/hide your Friend Code (good for anyone streaming!) 
  • Ability to turn off/on lobby invite notifications (toggle this in the game Settings)

Notes about the Friends List: 

  • No offline/online status for friends yet  
  • You can turn on/off lobby notifications  
  • Child accounts will need additional permissions from their parent/guardian to access their Friend’s List 

But that’s not it! Here are some other things you can expect with this update: 

  • Removed the ability to link/unlink existing accounts – this is temporary! We need to fix up the system here since we’ve heard it can be a confusing process, so for now we are turning this feature off until the next update. 
  • Cosmetics are arranged in a different order 
New Items 

You’ve waited and they’re finally here – new collab cosmetics just dropped!  


Ghostface Cosmetics (all platforms until April 30th)
  • Scream Mask 
  • Scream Robes 
  • Known Issues:
  • Known bugs from this Friends List update – We’re currently aware of some release bugs that are present in this new update (v2022.3.29). We will be working on getting these fixed, but for now, they are present in the new build. The biggest ones we’ll note here are:
    • Friends List does not update in real time – needs to be refreshed
    • No error message when attempting to send a Friend Request while being offline
    • “Recently Played With” and “Blocked Players” tabs do not update properly when blocking/unblocking players
    • Friends List requests are not received after adjusting the ‘Friend & Lobby Invites’ option multiple times in Settings
    • Significant shadow and texture issues – noticeable during Lights Off sabotage phase
    • Crew color Cosmetics and Crewmate displayed as the Preferred color rather than current Crewmate color in Lobby Wardrobe
    • Cosmetics may be slow to load in
    • When a new player joins the game, it can take half a second for their cosmetics to load in with the player as it does the spawn animation
  • DLC Grants Ongoing – Account linking borked some accounts in November, this is true. We have been steadily and diligently rolling out grants to those of you who lose your DLC, and a huuuge chunk have been resolved at this point. As I said in the last Bug Corner, this is a manual process that takes time, so we definitely appreciate your patience!
  • SSL Bug – this was a funny little bug that our backend programmers took a flyswatter to. It was a few days of disrupted play, but all should be well now.
  • Account Reset Bug – we know this has been happening to a fair number of you, and we hope that the changes to account linking should resolve this. As always, contact [email protected] if you’re still having account/inventory issues. 
  • Age Verification – We partnered with SuperAwesome in 2021 to implement an age verification process that makes it so our younger players have a safe and fun experience playing Among Us. This process isn’t foolproof (we err on the side of safety), and sometimes our adult players end up being asked to verify their age if they enter their birth year incorrectly. Please know that we hear your feedback, and we are hoping to streamline this process soon. 

Among Us – Ver. 2022.3.15

  • Release date: March 15th 2022 (North America, Europe, Japan)

Among Us – Ver. 2021.11.09

  • Release date: November 9th 2021 (North America, Europe) / November 10th 2021 (Japan)
  • Patch notes:
New Roles

A whole new level of gameplay is here. These 4 brand new Roles add a ton of complexity and new gameplay to the social deduction mechanics you know and love! More information can be found in the Lobby Settings, but here’s a quick rundown:


Crewmate Roles

  • Scientist: Access vitals at any time. Complete tasks to recharge your battery.
  • Engineer: Can use the vents.
  • Guardian Angel: Cast a protection shield around the remaining Crewmates.

Impostor Role

  • Shapeshifter: Disguise yourself by morphing into any other Crewmate.

And like most of our game settings, these Roles are completely customizable! Add or remove whatever you like, change the probability, and even alter individual abilities



You: Wants more cosmetics, collabs with other games, and progression.

Us: Wants to give everyone more things, needs to survive and pay for server costs, and do more cool stuff. 

Cosmicubes are a new way for you to get exclusive cosmetics and show off your gear! Space bean drip, as they say.

Here’s what this includes:

  • Brand new customization options – both free and paid. Visor cosmetics and special name plates make it even more fun to change up your look, plus additional pets, hats, and skins. 
  • Cosmicubes and unlockable cosmetics. Even more themed items are now unlockable via our new branching Cosmicube system! Play the game, gather resources, and reap the rewards of your murde– uh, I mean, tasks. Cosmicubes are a special feature for Among Us! There will be both paid and free varieties, and have more premium sets of themed items. 

How exactly does it work?

There are several different types of resources you can gather, and each one does something special:

  • Cosmicubes: Special cosmetic cubes that have themed items you unlock via a branching path. These items tend to be more special or detailed. Different Cosmicubes are bought using Beans or Stars, but their contents can only be unlocked by earning Pods through gameplay.
  • Beans: Resource awarded through normal online gameplay! Use it to redeem cosmetics and some Cosmicubes in the store. Free and very bean shaped.
  • Stars: This is our Premium Currency resource, bought with cold hard cash. You can buy these in the game and use it to purchase special items and some Cosmicubes.
  • Pods: Gathered through gameplay IF AND ONLY IF you have a Cosmicube activated. Each Cosmicube has a different type of Pod associated with its contents, and Pods cannot be transferred between Cosmicubes.
  • XP: Experience given based on playtime – will only be used for character leveling, which provides multiplier bonuses for Beans and Pods earned whenever you gain a new level.

Currency can always be stored for later, and we’ll be constantly releasing new items as we get more updates and partnerships in the future.


Achievements, and More

New items and XP means a need to be able to aggregate and link your Among Us account to different platforms! For most platforms, you’ll be able to log in, link, and save your progress and cosmetics using the same account.

Please read the in-game instructions VERY carefully to make sure you don’t overwrite the wrong account!

Exception: Stars purchased on Nintendo Switch™ will only be usable on that system. In the future, Pods & Beans earned on Switch can be shared across most systems. It’s not currently available with this update, but we’re working on it!

Additionally, there are some controller changes in this update.

  • The Vent action is no longer attached to the main action button. In order to vent, press V on the keyboard, or Right Shoulder Button on controllers.
  • Sabotage is no longer attached to the main action button. In order to access the sabotage map, Impostors can simply open up their map, using the Tab key on keyboards or Left Trigger on controllers.
  • If you have a special role, the action for that role is accessed via the F key on keyboards, or Right Trigger on controllers. This includes the Engineer’s vent ability.

Among Us – Ver. 2021.6.30

  • Release date: July 7th 2021 (North America, Europe) / July 8th 2021 (Japan)
  • Patch notes:
New additions: 
  • Added vent cleaning task. Cleaning the vent will prevent any impostors from using that specific vent, but Impostors can still use other vents and the vent will be usable once it’s cleaned. If an Impostor is already camping out in a vent and then you start cleaning that vent, it’ll boot them out with a dramatic sound and you’ll see who it is. Surprise!
  • New languages. Traditional and Simplified Chinese and Irish localization added. Thanks to Úna-Minh, Brian, Cormac, and Mike for the Irish translations. 
Bug fixes
  • Getting stuck in place after a meeting is fixed. This was the biggest issue with the latest update, so run free now!! Be free beans!! 
  • Scaling on “SHH” screen fixed. YES I read your comments on the SHH screen. The absolute hate that poor screen got, my goodness. I had to give it 3 tubs of ice cream to feel better. It’s okay though, the world is aligned once again, the proportions have been fixed after it got weirdly borked. 
  • Geoff eyepatch is now (sadly) back to being a mask. :( 
  • Clouds in the Airship no longer move in the wrong direction. No more backwards progress! Onward! 
  • Upload Data phone colors fixed. I have no clever caption for this. 
  • All major buttons are now localized. Yeah I’m really running out of fun ways to make this content interesting. 
  • Other minor visual and localization bug fixes. Our programming and QA team did a really great job please give them a psychic high five.  

Among Us – 15 Player Update

  • Release date: June 15th 2021 (North America, Europe) / April 16th 2021 (Japan)
  • Patch notes:
  • An improved art style (subtle, but cleaner and easier for us to animate)
  • 6 brand new colors: Tan, Gray, Banana, Rose, Maroon, and Coral — I have seen absolute blood baths in the comments section of people claiming Rose and Banana for their mains. Be safe out there. The pastel stans are thirsty for their cute colours, and rightfully so. (Also I know these colours are not super colourblind friendly – we want to move away from colours being the main way people identify Crewmates, so hang tight!)
  • A new kill screen meeting menu that indicates who died between roundsYeah that’s right I know you don’t keep track of who dies!! This is a call out to you Steve. (I don’t know a Steve but whoever is named Steve must be really freaked out right now.)
  • Ability to honk horn added to The Airship😀 If you have the “Stabilize Steering” task, bop the horn to honk it. Most important update in my humble opinion.
  • The shop works in multiple languages again 
  • Right Hand Man skin kill animation makes the WEEEEH sound again 
  • Kick/Ban icon remains persistent on screen if chat is open after voting ends 
  • Made it more clear you can change the chat type (Free Chat VS Quick Chat) in the game settings if you are logged in 
  • Various localization fixes 
  • Players will stop moving when meetings are called

Among Us – Ver. 2021.4.12

  • Release date: April 12th 2021 (North America) / April 13t 2021 (Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:
  • account login flow reworked
  • multiple users can now log in to the same device (no more “MismatchedProductUserIDs”)

  • Additional notes: none.

Among Us – Ver. ???

  • Release date: March 31st 2021 (North America, Europe) / April 1st 2021 (Japan)
  • Patch notes:
  • The 4th map, and the biggest one yet 
  • New tasks including jewel polishing, emptying trash (wow fun), and more 
  • The ability to pick the room you start in 
  • All new areas to explore (or get murdered in) 
  • Improved mobility with ladders and moving platforms 
  • New free hats including a heart pin, angry eyebrows, unicorn head, rubber glove, and more! 
  • Inspired by our other game, The Henry Stickmin Collection
  • Adds an account system
    • Right now it’s focused on reporting and moderation capabilities, but in the future we hope to add a friend system and the ability to transfer your cosmetics between devices.  
    • You can only make on account per device – if multiple people are using the same device it’ll be locked for the time being, but we’re planning a hot fix for that soon.
    • You will be able to report if someone in the game is acting inappropriately, including: inappropriate names, inappropriate chat, cheating/hacking, and harassment/misconduct. Consequences can range from temporary to permanent bans (including alternate accounts). 
    • Note that reports will be read by people (not bots!) and you will need to provide a reason as to why you are reporting.  
    • No linking of multiple accounts yet (Steam account is only on Steam, Epic account is only on Epic, etc.) It’ll be coming soon though.   
    • You must create an account to access free chat (without it you will have to use Quick Chat for safety!) 
    • You must create an account to freely change your display name. If you do not create an account, there will be randomized names you can choose from. 
    • Usernames are not exclusive. Multiple people can have the same username. (So if you take the username “PuffballsUnited”, other people can still use “PuffballsUnited”.) 
    • If you are under the minimum age of digital consent in your country (for most countries 13 is the minimum age), you have to get a parent/guardian’s permission to access free chat (which then allows you to create an account), or change your display name. 
    • Without an account (or if you’re a minor who doesn’t want to ask your parent/guardian for approval), you can still play via Guest Mode. This locks you to Quick Chat and doesn’t allow you to change your name other than with a randomly generated name. 
  • Additional notes: update will be released at 11AM PT / 2PM ET / 7PM BST / 8PM CEST / 3AM JST.
