Among Us VR Coming Soon

Video Game Launch on November 10th

Among Us is a video game that gained immense popularity during the pandemic lockdown. It is a type of social deduction multiplayer video game which puts a group of players in a unique scenario where they have to find a hidden bad guy amongst a group of regular good guy players.


During a regular game, all players have to do a number of tasks to progress the gameplay, while the "bad guy" has to kill all the players one by one before they can finish all their tasks. As the other players keep finding the potential dead bodies, they get multiple chances to hold a town square-style meeting, where they work together to discover the culprit in a limited time.

The bad guy has to bluff his way out of these voteouts by making up alibis and "marinating" other players to believe that they are not the imposter. Among Us added a special space theme to this format, which became insanely popular thanks to its easy-to-understand gameplay mechanics, free-to-play access, and, mostly, the cute spacemen avatars each player could customize to fit their personalities.

Popular YouTube and Twitch streamers helped popularize the game further by adding new mods and custom maps to the game to make it more interesting and watchable. Now, the company itself is getting in on the modifications by announcing the launch of an official VR version of the popular game.

This new VR version will be launched in collaboration between Innersloth, Schell Games and Robot Teddy and will be available to play from November 10th on the Meta Quest 2 and Steam platforms. While they have not mentioned anything about a Playstation VR version, we expect it to be in the works as well.

The new game will follow the same core concept but add a new dimension to the gameplay, as the first-person VR experience will severely limit the visibility of both the players and the imposter. Thus, enabling more chances for deception and discovery. It will also introduce new ways of interacting with tasks and sabotage functions, which are usually portrayed as 2D overlays right now.

Last but not least, the game will also support hand gestures so that players can be more expressive during voteout meetings, in addition to the existing proximity and regular voice chat features. Only time will tell if this version becomes as popular as the original one and if the modding community accepts it as a new platform for future shenanigans.
