The popular social deduction game, Among Us, will get a new lease on life as developers, Innersloth showcased a brand new project at The Game Awards. The developer, in collaboration with Schell Games and Robot Teddy, will take Among Us into virtual reality.
Here’s everything we know so far about Among Us VR including its release date, platforms, gameplay details and more.
When will Among Us VR be released?
Since the announcement of Among Us VR at The Game Awards, Innersloth is yet to provide details regarding the game’s release date, stating only that it “will be announced at a later date.”
Which platforms will Among Us VR be released on?
Among Us VR will be compatible with most VR headsets including PlayStation VR, Meta Quest 2 (formerly Oculus Quest) and Steam VR. This means that any player with a compatible VR headset should be able to play Among Us VR upon launch.
Among Us VR gameplay details
Innersloth has revealed the game will shift away from 2D to a “new 3D experience” that “will place you and our suspicious spacebeans in the heart of the Skeld with all of the core mechanics of teamwork and betrayal you know and love”. This VR experience will still be a multiplayer experience, supporting up to 10 players in a lobby.
While the game will retain the essence of what made the original game successful, it will be moving from a third person to a first-person perspective for players to truly “see life on the Skeld through the Crewmate’s visor”. Furthermore, the developer has stated that Among Us VR will not be compatible with the original version of the game.
More Among Us news
Innersloth has launched a new merchandise collection for their official store, the Among Us Holiday Collection, available now. Players can shop for their suspicious loved ones from a variety of holiday-themed items including hoodies, beanies, mugs and more.
And in time for the holidays, console players will get to experience all the love and betrayal as they drop in on The Skeld. Among Us will finally be arriving on consoles with a PlayStation and Xbox port launching on 14th December 2021.
And that’s everything we have to say during this emergency meeting! We hope we don’t get sussed out for using the button but we’ll be seeing you on The Skeld on 14th December 2021, Crewmates!
