SEATTLE, Wash. — Two developments regarding the game Among Us emerged Thursday night during the 2020 The Game Awards webcast. These two developmental announcements are definitely nothing to be sus about.
Among Us coming to Xbox Game Pass
Subscribers to Xbox Game Pass rejoice! (You know I am, being a subscriber of Game Pass Ultimate.)
While new games are being added to the growing games library, there are some questions as to availability.
What is certain: the game will be coming “soon” to PC, where it is normally a paid title. The only difference is the mobile version is free-to-play.
Joining Among Us are the popular RPG The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and The Yakuza Remastered Collection. Additional games include Neoverse, Killer Queen Black, The Medium, and Cyber Shadow.
With these new additions come questions as to where they will be available.
Skyrim, for example, will only be available for PC beginning December 15.
The mainline Kiryu Yakuza saga will be available in staggered phases. The Yakuza Remastered Collection, which is a remastering of the third, fourth, and fifth chapters, will be available beginning Jan. 28, 2021. The sixth chapter, The Song of Life, will be available on March 25. Moreover, all Yakuza games will be available on PC and Xbox.
There was no official date on when Among Us will be available on PC. The announcement simply stated, “soon.” The game is normally a paid title, unlike the free-to-play mobile version. There is nothing available regarding its availability to Xbox consoles.
Among the other titles, Neoverse will be the only other title outside of Skyrim to be PC-exclusive on the Game Pass.
New map — the Airship — coming in early 2021
Game developer InnerSloth would announce its newest map with an airship theme: The Airship.
With the new map came a new trailer. The trailer would show off new activities for crewmates to try and complete.
In addition, this massive map has multiple floors and contraptions.
The public release date is not available, but the video would state early 2021.
