Among Us’ next update was partially revealed during Live Game Stream on Thursday, and it includes a new map, new colors and cosmetics, new roles and a Hide and Seek mode. There is no release date for this new content yet, and the only part of the map we saw was a small environmental resource.
The new roles are Sherriff and Scientist. In the genre of hidden role-playing games like Among us, these roles are often used to give civilians more power against hidden monsters. Sherriff may be able to take a fraudster out without consensus, and a researcher may be able to test blood types. We need to see how these new roles fit into the current crewmate / deceiver dynamic.
There are also some other nice features to come: new visor cosmetics, new crewmate colors and achievements.
Among us was released in 201
