More Players — and Probably More Imposters, Too

Get ready to fix a ship with more friends — the much-desired Among Us bigger lobbies are finally in development, and that's not all that's coming in the future from Innersloth.

Among Us has been undeniably popular and its millions of players are certainly hungry for new content. Innersloth previously revealed its plans for 2021 which included the release of a new Airship map and the introduction of an account system. Both of those things are now live as of today, and Innersloth has also revealed what it's working on next.

Among Us Bigger Lobbies Will Mix Up the Game

The Among Us bigger lobbies will increase the maximum player count from 10 to 15. What we don't yet know, however, is how many of those players could potentially be Imposters. It's not quite to the level of crazy stuff like the 100 players mod, but it's a step in the right direction (and probably a fair bit more playable).

That's not all that's on the way, though — a full art style revamp is in the works. This change should make it easier for the developers to animate the characters and it should look a bit cleaner than what's currently in the game, too.

 
 

Finally (and perhaps most critically), Innersloth has promised to be much more transparent about what it's working on in the future.

"One of our big goals is to just show you the development process, what goes on behind-the-scenes, and for you grow with us," read a portion of today's developer log. "We’ve learned so much and don’t want to hide anything from you when it comes to this stuff. It’s weird!"

It's never been a better time to get into the game — you can buy Among Us on Steam starting at $3.99 or your regional equivalent, a 20% discount as part of a weekend deal. You can also get the game on consoles via its official website.

What do you think of the Among Us bigger lobbies? Do you think the game will still have the same vibe with 15 players? Let us know in the comments below!
