Regardless of whether you are a casual, core, or hardcore gamer, it is almost impossible that you have never heard the name of the game from Innersloth which is actually a 3 person developer – Among Us. This game, which has been available since 2018, has suddenly enjoyed skyrocketing popularity thanks to the help of Twitch streamers who are back to enlivening it. The “light” game format that can be enjoyed at any time and is indeed more fun to enjoy with friends, which also results in collaboration between many streamers, making Among Us a new phenomenon. Their popularity is also reflected in the statistics they managed to reap on Steam.
With the number of users increasing over the past month, assisted by relatively affordable game prices, the popularity of Among Us is unstoppable. Slowly but surely, it starts to successfully lock into the top 10 of Steam’s most popular games every week without difficulty. But last week, he managed to achieve a fantastic achievement. For the first time, the number of players with Among Us broke the 388,385 user mark and managed to beat the number of players at the same time as PUBG, which is currently continuing to decline. This made Among Us touch the third position of Steam’s busiest games after DOTA 2 and Counter Strike: Global Offensive.
The number of Among Us players, of course, has the potential to be much greater than this considering that it is also available in a mobile format which is distributed free of charge. Innersloth itself has not disclosed the exact number about how many active players are, the accumulated PC and mobile versions are currently excited. How about you? How many of you are actively playing Among Us right now?
Among Us was released in 2018 by InnerSloth and is a multiplayer party game. Four to ten players take on the roles of crew members on a spaceship preparing for departure. However, some of the players in the party were randomly assigned the role of rogue aliens. The imposter’s goal is to kill and trap the crew, sabotage the ship, and do it all without being noticed.
InnerSloth also announced that Among Us 2 is in the works, but the team has yet to set a release date. The company stated that its goal was to build a sequel that would survive growth, because of the way Among Us is being made, “it is very difficult to add more stuff without breaking what is already there.” Among Us 2 will also retain the core gameplay of crew mates versus con artists, but the developer plans to change the team balance, improve matchmaking and add more moderation. They also hope to add a new role, but are unable to confirm this at this time.
Among Us 2 is rumored to be free, especially for Android and iOS users. This news is certainly good news for the Among Us game players on Android and iOS. The reason is that the fear of players when the news that Among Us 2 is being developed is whether the player needs to pay to play the game, and in fact it is not, but the developer will provide ads (ads) that must be seen as a substitute for the payment option as in the previous game.
Unfortunately, users who have purchased the game on Steam will have to buy the second version again when it is released in the future. However, InnerSloth will provide a special discount for users who have purchased the previous version so it is not too expensive.
