Among Us Gets a First-Person VR Version Soon Main Image

Even in its 2D version with old-school visuals, Among Us is among the most immersive games of the last decade. What can be made to enhance it? Only making a VR version of the game. This is exactly what the developer, Studio Innersloth, announced on December 9 at the Game Awards ceremony. Yes, Among Us is going VR.

What will be the difference between the versions? First of all, it will be a first-person experience. You will walk in the shoes of a crewmate or an extraterrestrial imposter, which will make your presence at Skeld (or whichever map you choose) realistic. It’s quite a different feeling when your sight is limited, your presence is localized, and your mates are mostly unseen.

The rest will share with the original. The trailer showing the first-person experience demonstrates that the famous visual style can be easily transferred into the 3D experience, and, of course, into a VR version. The multiplayer features will also remain: a game will host from 4 to 10 players among which there will be an imposter or several.

Though the game was announced by a Studio Innersloth representative, little is known about the upcoming release. It’s too early to speak dates, so there is not even a hint, no approximate information, or even estimation. What’s known, though, is that the new game will be released for Oculus Quest 2 and Steam VR. These platforms are now the most popular for VR gaming, so it’s the right choice. On the other hand, VR gaming now needs more killer apps, that is, titles that move the entire industry ahead. The previous game that impacted the industry that much was Half-Life: Alyx (spring 2020), but it wasn’t enough to really revolutionize VR gaming. With all that hype surrounding it, Among Us can be the next step in making VR gaming greater than ever.

What do you expect from the VR version of Among Us? Got a VR gear already? If not, will you buy it because of Among Us, or will you wait for more titles to saturate the market? Express your opinion in the comments, and we’ll be grateful.

In iPadOS 15, this similarity will become even greater, because of improved multitasking. So, the rumor has it that the new iPadOS will look even more like a laptop. For example, the new home screen will be able to place widgets anywhere – like on its Android alternatives. Now, instead of dedicated section, you will be able to place widgets where you want them to be. Reviewed multitasking will allow your iPad to better handle multiple apps at the same...

In late 2021, Android will introduce the same possibility, though not for everybody at the same time. You won’t have to wait for the next major update to see apps ask you whether you will let them track you and access your data. All it takes is a Google Services update, and Alphabet is already working on it. So,...
