Among Us is currently the most hyped game of 2020. It is an online multiplayer murder-mystery game in which you’ve to find the imposters bent on murdering everyone on the spaceship. You can play this game with 4-10 players online and locally both. The game was developed back in 2018 by InnerSloth. In the game, you have to perform the necessary tasks and eliminate the imposters. As the current version of Among us is not stable, so the developers canceled the Among Us 2 and are working on improving the current version of the game.
The game is available on iOS, Android, and Windows. It has over 100,000,000+ installs on Google Play Store. Back in September Among Us Surpassed PUBG with almost 400,000 concurrent Steam Players. However, for the pc version, you have to pay but on smartphones, the game is completely free to play.
Among Us is the best party game as there is no rank in this game. So, it does not matter if you win or lose. The game depends on your deductive skills and your skill to deceive the crewmates. If you are killed by an imposter, you can still play the game as a ghost and talk with other ghosts which make this game a lot more interesting. However, there are some features this game lack.
The game really should introduce a Voice chat feature since most of the users play the game on their smartphones, and it is hard to type each detail. Most of the people use discord to communicate with each other using voice chat. The game lacks this feature so players have to rely on a third-party application. Moreover, most users use discord to cheat in the game, after getting killed they expose the imposter by telling their friends on the discord which is totally unfair. Among us should introduce this feature and restrict third-party applications.
Add Friend Feature
Most of us play online games to meet new people and make new friends. There is no option of login/signup in the game hence people can’t add each other in the game. So, if you played with someone it’s highly unlikely you’ll be playing with them again unless you know them personally.
Developers are not focusing on this matter. There are mods and hackers in this game now, even though the game is based purely on luck. However, there are hackers that can snatch the imposter role and can remove the kill cooldown. Hence, they win the game easily. There should be an anti-cheat system like the other online games.
Among Us Features that are coming soon
Among Us recently started a public beta testing on PC/steam for it’s upcoming big update. If you have bought the game through steam you can also become the beta tester for the upcoming update:
- Open Steam.
- Right click on Among us from your library.
- Go to Properties and Click on public beta.
Some amazing features are coming to Among US soon. One of them is anonymous voting which will allow you to vote someone anonymously, without them knowing. So, if you want to kick someone out you can do it without actually knowing it. Another great feature which favors Imposters is, you can now remove the taskbar so imposter can fake task easily. Just like visual tasks, you can turn it on and off too.
We are excited for the new update, are you?
