The Port Among Us PS4 / PS5 will arrive in 2021.
Among Us is coming to PS4 and PS5 this year with exclusive Ratchet & Clank skins for the platform, Sony and developer Innersloth announced today.
What was not revealed was an exact release date for the PlayStation Among Us port; only that it will arrive in 2021. A short trailer was shown during the PlayStation State of Play livestream on Thursday, where we got a glimpse of Ratchet & Clank’s new form of jellybean. You can see what the duo looks like in-game in the image at the top of this article, and there’s a bit of filmmaking at the end of the teaser showing Ratchet floating alongside an alien Clank from outside the Among Us spaceship. The aesthetic is understated and cartoonish, as you’d expect from Among Us, but it’s a nice little treat for fans of the Insomniac platformer. Also, Clank’s cartoon is adorable.
With the surprise explosion in popularity of Among Us last year, Innersloth has been open about wanting to port the multiplayer game to the PlayStation and Xbox consoles, as well as introduce a number of improvements. Yesterday the studio introduced a new art style with cleaner lines and improved animation that is being planned for a future update. We also know that plans are in the works for more color options, larger lobbies and “a new introduction when meetings are called that accentuates the information between the reporter and who exactly died between rounds.”
