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 at this time.
The hide-and-search mode teaser confirmed one of many sport’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 to unlock achievements as you play, which Amongst Us lacked. The Summer season Recreation Fest teaser confirmed off a “kill 5 gamers” achievement for instance, however there’s no phrase on what number of aims you’ll be able to tick off or how assorted they’ll be.
The smallest bit of information, and I imply that actually not disparagingly, was a couple of new map. The video confirmed just some 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 fully. However apparently that’s all that may very well be revealed in the intervening time!
There will 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 sport. It’s additionally unclear if they are going to be restricted to sure modes.
And, in fact, we’re getting extra beauty choices. The colours coral, rose, banana, grey, tan, and maroon have been revealed, with the latter two already being proven off on Twitter forward of the announcement. We additionally acquired to see some visor equipment like a bunch of goggles and sun shades, a mustache, and a scar (uncertain 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 at this time’s announcement, the crew has been going at full pace main into the summer time. Amongst Us was a latest Epic Video games Retailer freebie, and there’s summer time merch popping out for the sport. Plus, within the largest inform of extra to return, Innersloth revealed that it employed a brand new individual, 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 have been in a position to unlock it by watching at the least 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, certain. But it surely will get the folks going, and it gave us a giant trace that we’d see some Amongst Us information at this time.
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 arising this week and subsequent.” In addition to Summer season Recreation Fest, the crew is making the rounds with one other gaming pageant, Guerrilla Collective. Guerrilla Collective’s large E3 present takes place on June 12 if you wish to tune in for much more Amongst Us. It’ll be attention-grabbing to see if and the way Innersloth areas out bulletins.
So whereas I, and certain 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.
