Among Us may have come out in 2018, but it didn’t get its chance to shine until October of this year following the rapid success of Fall Guys (another jelly bean adventure) and the power of Twitch streamers. With a new lease on life, Among Us has a chance to spread its sus little wings and fly off into even more success, and that starts with a new map on the way.
Developer InnerSloth recently shared a first look at the new map over on the game’s Twitter page, saying “don’t show the imposters!” with the below sneak peek:
Hungry for more? Keep an eye out for @thegameawards on Dec 10 👀 It’s getting reaaaaal suspicious over there.

A full reveal will be dropping during this year’s Game Awards hosted by Geoff Keighley. This new map will mark the game’s fourth, adding a different layout for those suspicious little astronaut jelly beans to take on tasks and try not to die. This also gives imposters new hunting grounds to dominate.
While the above screenshot doesn’t reveal a whole lot, it does look like a cockpit for a different space ship. Some in the comments thought it might be a boat, which we’ll see for ourselves next month with the Game Awards.
The new teaser shot also shows off a few different areas in the cockpit for imposters to shift behind in order to wait for a new victim. And look at that, a vent right smack dab in the middle! How convenient.
Due to the random burst of love for this game, we recently reviewed Among Us after the indie title escaped our radar at launch. It’s surprisingly addictive, infinitely more so with friends. You can check out our full review here, with a small blurb below:
Developed by InnerSloth, the foundation of Among Us is simple: a social deduction game where a player is either a crewmate or the lone imposter. The imposter must pretend to do the assigned daily tasks in the game while stealthily killing off each crewmate one by one. If a body is discovered, a crewmate can call an Emergency Meeting to have a group chat trying to figure out who the imposter truly is.
Diving into Among Us, I see the charm despite its simplicity, and I can’t help but to love the way this game makes me look at everyone as if they are super sus. Among Us is what it is, and unapologetically so. This year may be bad, but having fun experiences definitely isn’t; Among Us provides a much-needed reprieve from reality without taking itself too seriously.
