Welcome aboard the Airship.
While I don’t play Among Us, I have long since come to terms with the fact that its influence is utterly inescapable. Players of all ages, and especially streamers, have come to love its deceptively simple brand of on-the-fly murder mysteries. Even if you don’t play the game yourself, you’ve probably seen at least one video or stream of someone else doing it, and with the new content additions to the game, I imagine that won’t be stopping any time soon.
InnerSloth announced yesterday that Among Us‘ newest and biggest map, the Airship, has finally been implemented into the game in the latest update. The Airship, a neat little reference to the Henry Stickman series for you fans of classic Flash games out there, is the largest map added to Among Us so far, and features a variety of new tasks for crewmates and new murder possibilities for impostors. The map also includes a nifty little feature that allows you to select where you want to spawn in at the start of a match. A bevy of new hats and skins have also been added to the game alongside the Airship.

Besides the new content, InnerSloth has added a new account system to Among Us to aid in the game moderation process. With the account system in place, players can now report jerks for things like griefing, cheating, or inappropriate behavior. You can make an account by pressing the new button on the top left of the screen, though currently it’s one account per platform (one account for Steam, one account for Epic, etc.). InnerSloth is hoping to add cross-platform functionality and cosmetic transfer in the future. If you don’t want to make an account, you can play as a guest, though guests can’t freely type in the in-game chat, being limited to the new quick-chat feature instead.
InnerSloth has said that their next big goal for Among Us is to increase the lobby size to 15, as well as revamp the game’s art style.
