Do you think you can trust your friends? Think again! Our social deception game, Among Us, is coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 later this year. Board the spaceship with 4-10 players via online play and get to work. Keep in mind that there may be one or more impostors on board ready to sabotage your work and take a fatal blow to you.
Among Us originally launched as a local, mobile-only teen game, and we’re so blown away how far we’ve come. Now we’re even more excited to say it’s coming to PlayStation! Wahhh ?! We can’t wait for more people to join our space crew… and potentially eject some of them. With all four maps available to play – from Skeld to Airship – it will be a fun chaotic moment together.
Our game was partly based on a game that one of our co-founders, Marcus, used to play as a kid where you would draw role cards and walk around a house aimlessly while another person ” secretly killing players by running a finger down their neck. He especially liked the idea of someone trying to blend in with everyone. This basic idea is still present in Among Us, but we wanted to alleviate the need for an interesting home layout and boring wandering, so we designed it with a space theme and added some chores. The game has undergone a ton of design changes to get it where it is at, and we’re glad it resonated with so many of you.
There’s a lot we could say about Among Us, but really the best part has been seeing the community come together around our indie title. From doodles to entire live-action movies and countless streams, we’ve seen a lot of love pouring out for our little space beans. Thank you. We hope to be able to continue to give back this same energy! We’ve got plenty of updates planned for Among Us, and we can’t wait to take our PlayStation community with us.
Thanks for reading and we would love to hear about your excitement for the PS4 and PS5 launch, coming later this year!
