Is ‘Among Us’ on Xbox? Find out the latest exclusively from InnerSloth
2021 is already looking up. It looks like Innersloth’s hit online game Among Us will be available on Xbox! The multiplayer game is well known for its online cross-platform play and with the help of Microsoft, Among Us has finally reached our Xbox Consoles.
Among Us can be played over multiple smart devices like Android, iOS and PC. Digitaltrends claimed that Among Us has grown to have over 100,000 players online every day. Among Us can have a maximum of ten players and can use the cross-play feature to join gamers anywhere around the world.
What is Among Us?
Innersloth’s Among Us is an indie game that started in 2018 but only reached its moment of success in the summer of the worst time of our lives.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Twitch streamers started sharing their Among Us gaming adventures with their 2.8 million online followers in July 2020. Since mid-September Among Us has been played by famous YouTube stars like PewDiePie, James Charles and TikTok influencers.
How Among Us is played
Among Us is a strategic game set in space where players become crew members amongst a one to three randomly selected impostor. Every crewmate must complete a variety of tasks to fix their spaceship, but they must beware of the impostor that lurks amongst them.
The Among Us impostor has to kill all the crewmates without getting caught. To catch the impostor, the crewmates will call an emergency meeting to discuss who’s been acting “sus”, or suspicious. Impostors will try to throw crewmates off their scent by lying or deflecting onto other players. Finally, every player will get an opportunity to vote who they believe the impostor is. Right or wrong, the group’s pick gets jettisoned into space.
Among Us crewmates need to vote the right person off the spaceship in order to win the game. However, if the crewmates vote the wrong person off the spaceship, then they send a valuable crewmate into space while the impostor continues to kill off innocent players. If the impostor defeats all the crewmates without getting voted off, the impostor wins.
