I’ve played Among Us before and thought, “Man, I wish I could play this in real life.” No? Well, anyway, Among Us VR has just been announced at the Game Awards.
The first trailer has just dropped, showing what it will be like to ride around a spaceship with a serial killer after you – but immersive. Unsurprisingly, that sounds pretty terrifying, as this new perspective makes it much harder to see if the impostor is sneaking up behind you, ready to attack.
Development for the VR version will be led by Schell Games, rather than original developer Innersloth. Schell is a US-based company known for its virtual reality offerings, so it’s taken care of by an experienced team in the genre.
“We are grateful to the community who continue to share our game with our friends and family and support us,” said Victoria Tran of Innersloth. “Schell Games are used to creating award-winning VR titles, and we couldn’t be more excited to create a whole new Among Us experience for our existing fans and new players. We can’t wait for players to become teammates in a first-person environment ”.
According to the sounds, Among Us VR will only launch with one map, The Skeld, as a press release regarding the announcement only mentions that location. But given the live nature of the game, it’s possible that more will be added later.
Among Us VR is coming to PlayStation VR, Steam, and Meta Quest VR (yes, that’s what they call Oculus Quest now, I’m afraid). No release date has been announced, with Innersloth saying it will be announced at a “later date.” Development for the social deduction game shows no signs of slowing down and is also slated for release on Xbox and PlayStation on December 14. This is in addition to its availability on mobile, PC and Nintendo Switch.
