Since Among Us is available on multiple platforms, it will support cross-platform play. “There are lots of updates we have planned for Among Us, and we can’t wait to take our PlayStation community along for the ride,” said the blog. The first console on which the game was released was Nintendo Switch.
Recently, InnerSloth added many new features to Among Us. The game gets six new colours for character sprites, an enhanced art style, new meeting screen, along with various bug fixes and improvements. The developers are planning to increase the lobby size for up to 15 players and has added a bigger meeting screen to incorporate that. Alongside, the developers have enhanced the art style of the game and said it won’t change it drastically, but it will make it easier for the back end in creating animations for the game in the future.
