Soon you can murder your friends, run away, take cover in vents, set off alarms, and then lie about all of it…in VR. Because that’s where Among Us is releasing next.
Announced this evening at The Game Awards, we got a very, very small sneak peek at Among Us VR: just a very brief code input puzzle in a small room. But it’s easy enough to imagine the weird betrayal possibilities.
There’s no release date for Among Us VR yet, but we do know that it’s coming to PlayStation VR, MetaQuest 2, and Steam when it does drop. Given the small size of the Among Us team and the astronomic way it blew up over the last few years, moving it to VR eventually is a pretty impressive feat.
Released in 2018, Among Us blew up suddenly in 2020 as streamers began to pick it up to play during lockdowns. When we reviewed it then we loved the way it transformed in-person cloak-and-dagger games to a virtual space. It’s since gotten tons of updates, and there may even be a collaboration with Fortnite in the works down the road.
