New Among Us Update Adds Roles, XP, And Lots Of Cosmetics

Starting today, Among Us players can kit out their crewmates and imposters with new cosmetics earned by leveling up or purchased from an in-game store. As part of the Cosmicubes update, the game has received a buffet of new content, including visor cosmetics, new items, two new currencies, a store, and new roles.

Everything from this update starts with the addition of experience points and levels. Players now receive XP for completing tasks, killing crewmates, or correctly guessing who the imposter is. With each level, players get two new currencies: Pods and beans. Beans — along with stars, a premium version of the currency — can be used to purchase items, bundles, and Cosmicubes. Pods, on the other hand, can be used to unlock cube contents, which contain cosmetics and such.

In terms of gameplay changes, players can now play games of Among Us with player roles, changing regular matches in a big way. Crewmates can spawn as Scientists, who can check player vitals at any time, or engineers, who can use vents. Imposters, on the other hand, can become Shapeshifters and take on the appearance of anyone else in the game. Players that are killed can also do more than their remaining tasks as Guardian Angels that can defend players from being killed once.

Along with all of this content, Among Us developer Innersloth included a small teaser in today’s trailer confirming that the studio is currently working on another game. However, no other details on the new title were announced.

Fortnite Grab-itron and location abductions update with cosmetics leak

Today after a brief server down time Fortnite nabbed an update to version 17.30. This newest update to Fortnite brings about The Abduction of Slurpy Swamp, just before the Ariana Grande Rift Tour event. If you head over to Slurpy Swamp and find it slightly more difficult to stay stuck to the ground, don’t worry! You’re not alone in this abduction situation.

The Mothership is using its tractor beam to lift bits of the Earth, buildings, vehicles, and other elements upward. Abductions like this will occur throughout the week, with locations like Coral Castle and Corny Complex headed towards the ship in the very near future.

Abduction zones will have low gravity, so you’ll find yourself afloat. These locations will have extra IO Chests and Launch Pads spawning in as well. You’ll do well to make the best of the inevitable with the new Grab-itron weapon.

Grab-itron can be found on top of Abductors, in everyday average chests, and onboard the Mothership. This weapon is not available in competitive modes, because competitions are not meant to be fun, they’re all about business.

The Grab-itron weapon is a versatile piece of hardware. It works like a flying Saucer with its own tractor beam. You’ll be able to pick up almost anything in the game, hold said item at a short distance, and toss at tremendous speed. The versatility of the weapon comes not only in its ability to pick up a wide variety of items, but in its size, material, and speed-based damage distribution.

The damage caused by an item tossed with the Grab-itron depends on what an item is made of, how large an item is, and how fast it is launched. Items can be used as shields, and potentially to bash, too – it’s wild!

Above you’ll also see some new items that appear in the game files for version 17.30. Some of these items might not be available to you right out the gate – they’ve only just been added to the innards!

New Among Us Hide & Seek mode, Visor Cosmetics, Achievements

The developers that make Among Us revealed today that they’re bringing a new game mode to the title. This new mode will be called Hide & Seek. For a game as simple as Among Us, a whole new “mode” of gameplay can mean everything. In this case, it could make or break the future of the viral hit. There are also a bunch of new roles coming to the game – and new colors and skins, too!

Below you’ll see the official Summer Game Fest 2021 Among Us Roadmap Trailer. In this very brief trailer, you’ll catch a peek at the new Hide & Seek mode, new roles, new skins, and new colors. Of course you won’t find anything TOO amazing right out in the open – they wouldn’t want to spill all the beans at once!

In the trailer you see above, you’ll find a brand new Sheriff. You’ll see a Scientist – complete with face mask. You’ll see the recently revealed “Tan”, Coral, Maroon, and Banana! That’s a sort of light yellow – and you can wear a banana on your head while you’re banana color too! Also there’s a new Gray!

Visor Cosmetics will appear in the near future, too. A pair of goggles, aviator glasses, gas mask, a sticky note that says “DUM”. There’ll be a face mask (as shown with the scientists above), hockey mask (like Jason V.), moustache, stitched scar, name tag that says GUD, and a plague mask!

The game will soon see achievements aplenty, including items as simple as “Get 5 total kills” and… probably some more complicated achievements too. And there’ll be a new Map 5, and the game is going to continue to be refined and perfected in a whole bunch of different ways – we shall see!
