During The Game Awards on Thursday, Indie developer Innersloth unveiled its fourth map, The Airship, for the online social deduction game Among Us, following the game’s win for the best multiplayer title of the year.
The Airship features new tasks to be performed by players and is much more elaborate than previous maps, including ladders and elevators to be used by players to access various parts of the ship.
The new map will also provide players after a meeting with several spawn points, allowing them to avoid grouping up (and avoid being easily picked off by any imposters.)
The map, first teased by the official Among Us Twitter account last month, has a higher color and information level than the current maps the game has had since its quiet release in June 2018, two years before it became a viral phenomenon in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
WE WON BEST MULTIPLAYER?? 😭😭😭
Thank you everyone, we're literally in tears. You helped make this possible, and while awards aren't necessary… it's just really nice. Thank you for supporting the 4 of us.#TheGameAwards https://t.co/TaSxVgLiQa
