Trust your PlayStation friends at your own peril. 

During a recent State of Play episode, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced that 2018’s social deduction multiplayer game Among Us will hit PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles later this year. Players with friends on other platforms can also enjoy cross-platform multiplayer support.

Watch the reveal trailer below:

Seeing as the new State of Play episode was focused on PS5’s Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, the announcement also revealed that a Ratchet & Clank-themed skin, hat and pet will be exclusive to the PlayStation ports. If you’ve ever wanted to scream, “He was in the vents!” as a Lombax, congratulations. Your very specific desire has been fulfilled. 

It’s strange to think that Among Us first came out in 2018, finding a niche little following before streamers caused it to explode in popularity in 2020, during the pandemic times - which we are slowly but surely phasing out of. Fingers crossed. The game launched on Nintendo Switch last year and ports for Xbox One and Xbox Series X have also been announced, but not given a release date yet. 

Developer InnerSloth cancelled a sequel to Among Us to focus on pushing updates for the main game, and so far, they haven’t disappointed. Their newly-released Airship map is huge and filled with lots of stabbing - I mean, co-operative potential.
