How “suspicious” is it? Between us continues to come back into focus. While social reasoning games have fallen out of popularity a bit, the developers are still letting the rest of the players play and enjoy. Also, that last sentence could be a lie, because Between us continues to be the most downloaded game on markets like PlayStation Network. I guess Between us really just dropped in popularity on Twitch.
Either way, Between us received a lot of support over the past year. The game has some new roles like a scientist, a new way to earn and buy cosmetics in the form of a Space Tube and even a partnership with Netflix goliath Arcane. (Based on PC gaming, of course League of Legends.) Now, the developer has revealed a roadmap that discusses plans to continue what they’ve been doing: more roles, more cosmetics, and more collaborations.
A pause route
The developers have released an image detailing exactly what is planned for the future. Quality of life updates will be rolling out, just like the friend system in the game, and we’ll even get a new game mode in the form of hide and seek. Hide and seek in Between us has always been a fan favorite custom game mode, so an official version would be greatly appreciated. Probably my favorite, though, is the collaboration with the slasher franchise, Screaming, as Between us are getting some Ghostface cosmetic cooling.
Developer Innersloth is also working on a new virtual reality version of the game, Among us VR. It is in development and you can see a preview of the game on Among us VR Twitter account here. Personally, I can’t wait to accuse my friends of murder in virtual reality. I wonder if playing the game that way feels more spooky? Either way, stay away from me.
