On the 31st of March, the new Airship map for the hit Social Deduction game will be available as part of a free update. Developer InnerSloth says the Airship map is the greatest game ever, with new assignments and the ability to choose which room.
This trailer provides a preview of the new map unveiled during the December Game Awards.
The new update will also incorporate a “preliminary” accounting system called by InnerSloth to assist with moderation. Accounts have been ongoing for a while and InnerSloth liked to take time, according to a blog post, to execute them carefully.
“Extremely complicated and time-consuming is a proper moderation system,” said the studio. “It’s not easy to just have a report button and to ban someone from getting an algorithm after some reports.” Most importantly, InnerSloth also teases that the update will include new free hats.

Among Us launched for the first time in 2018, but, last year it blew up when people went to the game during the pandemic. (The figure is said to have been around half a billion people in November.) The game was so influential that InnerSloth even canceled an original sequence. Currently available with an Xbox port and for PC, iOS, Android, and Switch.
About Among Us:
Among us is a computer game that was designed by the InnerSloth firm and published in 2018 as a “social deduction game for online multiplayer,” in which up to 10 players run around in a virtual spacecraft performing traditional maintenance activities while attempting to find out who the “impostors” are before they destroy everything. Remember Mafia’s game or sleepover? It’s that, practically unless you’re small astronauts from blobby.
At the beginning of the game, the Skeld, a random role is assigned to four to ten players. You can be a frequent crewmate to complete before the round ends, from inspecting your health conditions to tracking the trajectory of the ship, or you’ll be an enforcer to pretend to do fake assignments while actually selecting and killing the players on the ship. They can also sabotage the whole boat, release oxygen or break the reactor, so that people can fit things.
When a body is discovered, the person who discovers it informs the other players and a gathering takes place to talk about who the impostor is (or are, if there are several). They vote and anyone who gets the majority of votes is removed and the round continues until an emergency meeting is located or someone calls. If you are an impostor, your aim will be that all the players except you cast votes as convincingly as possible. You should see who’s the other so you don’t go after each other, whether there are different impostors and one you are.
You should limit your visual area to your surroundings if you are a crew member (even smaller if someone turns off the lights). You should see where everyone else is on the screen, whether you are an impostor. The cameras in other rooms can also be looked at, and some players can be seen on other ships. However, it is important to remember that not all of you may think when you say the rest of the crew, even though you see someone murdered right in front of you.
