Among US Roadmap Revealed

Innersloth has released a new Among Us update. New features include anonymous voting and extra task bar modes. The developer has also revealed a small Among Us roadmap for upcoming content that's coming to the game soon.

What's in this Among Us update?

This news comes via the official Among Us Steam community. The update adds the ability for teammates to anonymously vote, which will show all votes in grey and won't attribute votes to players. There are also three extra Task Bar modes: Always, which works like normal; Meeting, which only updates the bar during player meetings; and Invisible, which removes the task bar completely.

New anonymous voting has been added in the latest Among Us update.

As well as these updates, you'll also notice that on the MIRA map, sabotaging communications will now clear the security logs. Extra symbols have been added to the "Fix Wires" task (which should help for colorblind players), and new cosmetics can be found on the meeting screen. Finally, Innersloth has also added a slew of bug fixes and smaller improvements, none of which are specifically named in the patch notes.

What's coming in the Among Us roadmap?

Developer Innersloth says that although it has "lots of things planned" for Among Us, it has no official roadmap. The studio says it doesn't want to make promises without definitely being able to deliver on them. Innersloth also says it likes to "play things pretty loose" so that it can tackle whatever it thinks is most needed in the game at any given moment. Still, there are things Innersloth says it wants to work on. Here are some big things coming to Among Us in the future:

 
 
  • Accounts - Innersloth says it's hoping to get player accounts into the game "by December". This should help players report toxic accounts or hackers. Friends lists are also coming "at a later date after launch".
  • New map - A new map is on the way and it's "Henry Stickmin-themed", according to Innersloth. It'll be a bigger map than Polus and will be available for free to all players.
  • Translations/localizations - More language translations are on the way, and Innersloth is working with professional translations to deliver this, although the studio isn't ready to share which languages are coming just yet.
  • Colorblind support - This newest patch contains what Innersloth says is a "first pass" on colorblind support, and the studio says it'll continue to monitor this feature to see how it performs.

There are lots more features in the pipeline for Among Us, none of which Innersloth says it's quite ready to share yet. We'll bring you more on Among Us updates as and when we get them. Until then, you can grab the game on PC via Steam and on mobile devices.

Dark Souls changed my life, and I'm here to spread the good news. I like pretty much all sorts of games, but I judge everything by its proximity to our Lord and saviour, Dark Souls.
