'Among Us' Adding Friend's List And Quality Of Life Updates Soon, As Well As More Cubes, Roles, Collabs And More

by Rainier on Jan. 17, 2022 @ 11:25 a.m. PST

Among Us is an online and local party game of teamwork and betrayal for 4-10 players...in space!

Join your Crewmates in a multiplayer game of teamwork and betrayal!

Play online with 4-15 players as you attempt to hold your spaceship together and return to civilization. But beware – there may be an alien Impostor aboard!

One or more of your Crewmates has been replaced with dangerous shapeshifters – Impostors. Their goal is to eliminate the rest of the crew before the ship reaches home. The Impostors will sabotage the ship, sneak through vents, deceive, and frame others to remain anonymous and kill off the crew.

When the game begins, players stay quiet and try to complete their task… until the Impostor strikes! Once a body is reported or someone suspects something, the surviving crew openly debate who could be Impostors and possibly eject a crew member from the game. Meanwhile, the Impostors try to pretend they’re Crewmates and confuse everyone! If Impostors remain after the crew votes, everyone goes back to maintaining the ship until another body is found. If all Impostors are eliminated or the Crewmates complete all their tasks, the crew wins!


Our main priority at the moment are a Friend’s List and quality of life improvements.

I know I know, you’ve been asking for a Friend’s List for ages!! It’s happening!! Finally you’ll be able to keep in contact with any Crewmates you get along with … or keep tabs on your greatest enemies, I guess? We know a ton of you have found some lifelong friendships from this game and that’s really cool – we want to allow you to keep in touch and continue playing games together!

As for quality of life updates, many of you have found some of the account creation, Cosmicube redemption, chat choice, and other aspects of the game flow a bit confusing. Understandable! You’re basically experiencing the building of Among Us and our adjustment to its popularity with us haha. That being said, confusing you isn’t the goal, so making improvements to the UX is also coming up next. Thanks for being patient with us!

Additional Fun Things

  • Ghostface cosmetics are coming to Among Us soon! These will be free and more info out soon. Some great streamers played together to celebrate, which you can see here.
