Amongst Us introduced it’s getting a brand new hide-and-search mode, achievements, a brand new map, and tons of cosmetics at Summer season Recreation Fest right this moment.
The hide-and-search mode teaser confirmed one of many recreation’s resident beans roaming with a map with only a small circle of sunshine emitted round it. Solely when one other participant was inside that mild would they be seen, much like when the lights go off within the regular imposter mode we have already got.
You’ll additionally quickly be capable of unlock achievements as you play, which Amongst Us lacked. The Summer season Recreation Fest teaser confirmed off a “kill 5 gamers” achievement for example, however there’s no phrase on what number of goals you possibly can tick off or how different they’ll be.
The smallest bit of information, and I imply that actually not disparagingly, was a few new map. The video confirmed only a few pixels value of…one thing. I’m nonetheless attempting to discern whether or not it was a battery or a button or a swap or one thing else totally. However apparently that’s all that may very well be revealed in the mean time!
There may even be new roles for gamers, together with a sheriff and a scientist, however who is aware of what on earth these roles will truly play within the recreation. It’s additionally unclear if they are going to be restricted to sure modes.
And, after all, we’re getting extra beauty choices. The colours coral, rose, banana, grey, tan, and maroon had been revealed, with the latter two already being proven off on Twitter forward of the announcement. We additionally received to see some visor equipment like a bunch of goggles and sun shades, a mustache, and a scar (not sure the way you get a scar on a visor, although).
Warmth has been choosing up across the Innersloth-developed indie hit Amongst Us. Previous to right this moment’s announcement, the staff has been going at full pace main into the summer time. Amongst Us was a current Epic Video games Retailer freebie, and there’s summer time merch popping out for the sport. Plus, within the greatest inform of extra to return, Innersloth revealed that it employed a brand new particular person, which is critical while you notice this brings the variety of workers to 9. Sure, they nonetheless can’t fill a 10-person foyer on their very own, a element famous within the announcement.
Geoff Keighley additionally revealed that the in-game masks of his face shall be obtainable once more. This time, gamers had been capable of unlock it by watching no less than quarter-hour of Thursday’s Summer season Recreation Fest Kickoff.
In case you’re unfamiliar, the masks is a photorealistic recreation of Summer season Recreation Fest host Keighley’s face that you just put on in your little bean imposter/crewmate. It’s a bit of horrifying, positive. However it will get the folks going, and it gave us an enormous trace that we might see some Amongst Us information right this moment.
The Amongst Us Twitter account additionally divulged on June 8 that further participant colours (together with maroon) and different information could be revealed on the occasion, however that was much less thrilling.
On the identical day, Innersloth teased, “Heaps developing this week and subsequent.” In addition to Summer season Recreation Fest, the staff is making the rounds with one other gaming competition, Guerrilla Collective. Guerrilla Collective’s massive E3 present takes place on June 12 if you wish to tune in for much more Amongst Us. It’ll be fascinating to see if and the way Innersloth areas out bulletins.
So whereas I, and sure others, have placed on my spacesuit a bit much less since Amongst Us took over final summer time, I’m guessing it’s time to vent again in.
