'Among Us' Crewmate Edition Coming to Retail Later This Month

by Rainier on Dec. 8, 2021 @ 3:05 p.m. PST

Among Us is an online and local party game of teamwork and betrayal for 4-10 players...in space!

Join your Crewmates in a multiplayer game of teamwork and betrayal!

Play online with 4-15 players as you attempt to hold your spaceship together and return to civilization. But beware – there may be an alien Impostor aboard!

One or more of your Crewmates has been replaced with dangerous shapeshifters – Impostors. Their goal is to eliminate the rest of the crew before the ship reaches home. The Impostors will sabotage the ship, sneak through vents, deceive, and frame others to remain anonymous and kill off the crew.

When the game begins, players stay quiet and try to complete their task… until the Impostor strikes! Once a body is reported or someone suspects something, the surviving crew openly debate who could be Impostors and possibly eject a crew member from the game. Meanwhile, the Impostors try to pretend they’re Crewmates and confuse everyone! If Impostors remain after the crew votes, everyone goes back to maintaining the ship until another body is found. If all Impostors are eliminated or the Crewmates complete all their tasks, the crew wins!

Maximum Games, Innersloth, and Dual Wield Studio announced that the Among Us: Crewmate Edition, previously due for release in January 2022, will now be launching in North America on December 21, 2021, and is available for pre-order.

Thanks to the dedication and teamwork of some busy Crewmates, along with the elimination of several Impostors, the stock will be ready just in time to hit retailers for Christmas - a huge win for the crew!

The Among Us: Crewmate Edition will also be sabotaging shelves in the UK and Europe on December 14, with a Japanese and South Korean release following shortly on December 16. 

Among Us: Crewmate Edition ( $29.99 | £27.99 | €32.99) includes:

You don’t want to be the only suspicious looking one in the crew, do you?
