No matter how you spin it, 2020 was an incredible year for Innersloth and you’d have been hard-pressed to escape its hit game Among Us. Despite releasing back in 2018, it slowly became one of 2020’s most successful games and, after a surprise drop following the last Indie Showcase in December, we can finally be sus on Nintendo Switch.
We’ve known for some time they’ll be adding a new map as a free update and now, Innersloth has given us a small update. Detailed via their latest blog post, a lot of it is a retread of last year’s well-earned achievements and launches for other platforms, but they also discuss Among Us’ roadmap for 2021.
The new Airship map is part of this, which was inadvertently accessible on Switch via a glitch back in December. Due to release in “Early 2021” and based around The Henry Stickmin Collection, the Airship uniquely lets you choose which room to start in, alongside new features like ladders and additional costumes. It was revealed during The Game Awards and if you missed it, the trailer is available below:
For the Switch version specifically, Innersloth also addressed that several bug fixes have been worked on, including one which stops particular words being blocked in chat. Furthermore, an in-game account system is also being implemented, adding friends lists and saved stats, but no launch window has been given.
It’s certainly set to be a busy 2021 for Among Us and we can’t wait to see what it brings.
