Among Us is one of the hottest games at the moment, and the hype is still growing. The game was first released on steam back in 2018 but didn't take to the spotlight until 2020.
Where is the game going now? We're here to fill you in on the next chapter for Among Us.
LATEST - Among Us Coming To PS4 & PS5
The long-awaited PlayStation port for the game is finally here, but that's not the only news. Along with the game's release, there will be an exclusive Ratchet & Clank skin available to PlayStation players.
What Is Among Us?
If you don't know, Among Us is a 4-10 player party game where players attempt to prepare your spaceship for departure, but one (or more) random player among the crew is an Impostor bent on killing everyone!
KEEP IT SECRET, KEEP IT SAFE: Don't let a soul know if you're the Impostor!
The crew can win by completing tasks or discovering who the Impostor is, but the Imposter can disrupt their progress and sabotage tasks.
Will Among Us come to console?
The game is the big title of the moment with streamers, so if developers Innersloth want to capitalise on their momentum getting it onto console will be crucial.
Among Us is coming to PlayStation consoles later this year. Though the game isn't exactly new, its recent success and attention have inspired PlayStation to optimise the game for their consoles.
This was announced in the most recent State of Play event that took place last night, April 29.

ACT CASUAL: Hiding in plain sight is the key
"...we'd have to write a system for quick comms. It'd basically be for randoms, like Rocket League. I don't know if we'd be able to implement console voice chat or not. I know one of the first things we want to add is a friend's list-type account system".
There is not quick way to type messages on console, and we all know that voice chat can be a real problem.
Communication is so important in Among Us that it might be impossible to play without risking the abusiveness that can come with console voice chat.
The silver lining
Thankfully, you don't need some mega PC build to play Among Us.
It only costs £3.99 on Steam and the minimum PC requirements are very low:
- OS: Windows 7 SP1+
- Processor: SSE2 instruction set support
- Memory: 1 GB RAM
- DirectX: Version 10
- Storage: 250 MB available space
Not only that, it's available on iOS and Android!
So if you haven't tried it, what are you waiting for!
