Among Us, the game that became a sensation in 2020 thanks to the large number of people who have been playing it since its launch, will be coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 later this year. In official confirmation by Playstation, this a big bet for the interconnectivity between consoles and pc gamers.
The video game has become popular thanks to the participation of important Twitch streamers who have managed to get famous athletes and actors to popularize the franchise among their thousands of followers on social networks.
Among Us is a multiplayer online social deduction game developed and published by American game studio Innersloth. It was released on iOS and Android devices in June 2018 and on Windows in November 2018, featuring cross-play between these platforms.
The game was also ported for Nintendo Switch in December 2020, and has planned releases for Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in 2021. The game was inspired by the party game Mafia and the sci-fi horror movie “IT,” and since the release of its first map, The Skeld, different maps were added to the game. The most recent map, “The Airship”, was released in March 2021.
He especially loved the idea of someone trying to blend in with everyone. That core idea is still present in Among Us, but we wanted to alleviate the need for an interesting house layout and boring wandering, so we made it space-themed and added tasks. The game underwent a lot of design changes to get to what it is now, and we’re glad it resonated with so many of you.Said Victoria Tran Community Director, de Innersloth
We could say a lot of things about Among Us, but the best thing has been watching the community rally around our indie title. From doodles to entire live-action movies and countless streams, we’ve seen a lot of love pour out for our little space beans. Thank you. We look forward to continuing to return that same energy. We have many updates planned for Among Us, and we can’t wait for our PlayStation community to join us on the journey. concludes Victoria
Creator studio Innersloth wants to grow responsibly and focus on taking care of its community members rather than getting too big before it can handle it properly. This means a little more time is needed to test everything and make sure everything works on all the platforms Among Us is and will be on.
