No matter how you spin it, 2020 was an incredible year for Innersloth and you had been hard pressed to escape the hit game. Among us. Despite the release in 2018, it slowly became one of 2020’s most successful games, and after a surprising fall after the last Indie Showcase in December, we can finally be buzzing on the Nintendo Switch.
We have known for some time that they will add a new map as a free update, and now Innersloth has given us a little update. Much of it is detailed via their latest blog post, and it is a new retreading of last year’s well-deserved achievements and launches for other platforms, but they are also discussing Among Us̵
The new airship map is part of this, which was inadvertently available on Switch via a bug in December. Due to the release in “Early 2021” and based around The Henry Stickmin Collection, the airship allows you to uniquely choose which room you want to start in, along with new features such as ladders and extra costumes. It was unveiled during The Game Awards, and if you missed it, the trailer is available below:
For the Switch version specifically, Innersloth also addressed that several bug fixes have been worked on, including one that prevents certain words from being blocked in chat. Furthermore, an in-game account system is also implemented that adds friend lists and stored statistics, but no launch window is provided.
It will definitely be a busy 2021 for Among Us, and we look forward to seeing what it brings.
