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

  • text graphic update
  • updated translations

  • 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.
