The Game Awards has offered a sneak peek at the new map for Among Us, as the game wins best multiplayer and mobile game.
It was a big night for indie developer InnerSloth on Thursday, as their game Among Us picked up two major awards at The Game Awards and they unveiled the multiplayer title’s latest map.
The success of Among Us is unusual because it was first released two years ago but only became popular this year when various high-profile streamers started playing it during lockdown.
A variation on party game Mafia, the game involves completing mundane repair tasks while trying to discover who amongst the other players are imposters trying to sabotage the map.
Currently there are only three maps (a spaceship called the Skeld, a headquarters building called MIRA HQ, and a planetary base called Polus). The new one is called The Airship and you can see a brief glimpse of what it’ll look like in the reveal trailer.
The airship is taken from another of InnerSloth’s games called The Henry Stickmin Collection and has new features such as being able to pick your starting room and using ladders and floating platforms.
There are also new mini-games, including polishing crystals and taking out the bins, and new skins. There was also a Geoff Keighley mask announced on the night but we’re not sure how long that’s going to be available for.
There’s no exact release date yet but the new map will be available sometime in ‘early’ 2021.
As for the awards, Among Us won not only best mobile game but also beat out competition from the likes of Call Of Duty: Warzone and Fall Guys to win Best Multiplayer Game.
