Among Us: Overview
Among Us is a simple made-for-everyone multiplayer game where you will need to complete all the tasks on the spaceship to win. It is a game of survival where you can either play as an impostor or as a crewmate. You can play both local and online with 4-10 players, one of which will be an imposter.
The impostor, a shape-shifting alien that looks like a crewmate, sneaks around, creating chaos. To win, it must either kill every crewmate or stop them from completing the tasks. The impostor’s sole purpose is to sabotage the mission.
For crewmates, their mission is to complete the tasks without getting killed and find the imposter and kick it off the map. Worth noting, those crewmates killed or ejected by the imposter will become ghosts and continue to complete the tasks.
Originally released in 2018, it wasn’t until the pandemic hit that this popular multiplayer game generated some buzz. Memes around the game flooded social media and might just be the reason for the game’s sudden popularity. The minion-like multicolored creatures became a favorite of meme lovers.
Popular content creators on YouTube and Twitch live-streamed the gameplay and get all the credit for the game’s popularity. Of course, with so many people staying indoors craving connection, even virtual connection, Among Us became a valuable source of entertainment and the best people’s choice game.

Among Us VR on Meta Quest
Among Us has finally made its way to VR and we’re excited about its launch on Meta Quest. Developed by Innersloth, Schell Games, and Robot Teddy, Among Us VR has all the intensity of the original multiplayer social deduction game, but in virtual reality. Note that Schell Games is the same game studio that brought I Expect You To Die, I Expect You To Die 2, and Until You Fall on the Meta Quest.
Announced at The Game Awards 2021, the announcement stole the show. While the game has been around on Quest on VR Chat and Rec Room, it has only now officially made its way to the Meta Quest. Check out the premiere trailer for Among Us VR from The Game Awards 2021.
The game first came to Nintendo Switch in late 2020 and is ready for Xbox and PlayStation towards at the end of 2021. This monumental achievement speaks to the success the game has seen on mobile and PC.
Imagine doing everything you do as a crewmate or impostor in a 3D experience. The VR version of the game is sticking with the same core mechanics of teamwork and betrayal you’ve been enjoying in 2D.
The imposter will get busy creating a ruckus on the ship while the crewmates are collectively trying to find the imposter among them and eject it from the ship’s airlock. And of course, the fun begins when the crewmates turn on each other, everyone accusing everyone else.
From players getting their spaceship in working order to rolling dice until you get doubles, and from priming shields to unlocking manifolds, Among Us VR will certainly entertain you.
How does the game go in VR? Let’s find out.
