Editor’s Note (December 17, 2020): We’ve updated the title of the post to reflect the availability of Among Us on Xbox Game Pass for PC, and noting its upcoming availability in 2021 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox Game Pass for Console.
One of the biggest gaming hits of 2020 is coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC, as we’re excited to announce that InnerSloth’s Among Us will be coming to the service soon.
Need a primer on a game that’s been dominating the world with over half a billion players? We got you. Among Us is an online, 4-10 multiplayer game that has you and your friends attempting to prepare your spaceship for departure. Work together and complete your tasks quickly but beware… there may be impostors aboard!
That’s right, there’s a twist: One (or more?!) of your crewmates has been replaced by a dangerous impostor who wants to eliminate the rest of the crew before the ship reaches home. Whether it’s sneaking through vents, sabotaging the ship, or even secretly killing off members of the crew, it seems you can’t trust just anyone in your group. Call an emergency meeting if you suspect something, but the Impostor can easily frame other players too…
Among Us is all about communication, teamwork, betrayal, and deceit. While everyone is fixing up the ship, no one can talk. However, once a body is reported or a meeting is called, the surviving crew will openly debate who they think The Impostor is. Meanwhile, The Impostor’s goal is to pretend they are a member of the crew and blame someone else. If The Impostor is not voted off, everyone goes back to maintaining the ship until another meeting is called. If The Impostor is voted off, the crew wins!
We’ll have more to share on Among Us coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC.
