What you need to know
- After a lot of teasers, Among Us is finally hitting Xbox Game Pass on Dec. 14, 2021.
- The game had previously only been available through Xbox Game Pass for PC.
- With the release for Xbox and PlayStation, the game is now available across all major platforms, including mobile, for crossplay.
It's been teased for a while, but Among Us for Xbox is finally a reality. It was announced Thursday that the social deduction game will be hitting Xbox Game Pass on Dec. 14, 2021, just in time for playing with friends and family over the holidays.
No other info was revealed in the Xbox news post (besides a bunch of screaming, which is pretty on brand), but it's safe to assume that this will be the base version of the game. Granted, the game wasn't that expensive to begin with, but now you have easy access to play it on your Xbox console. The game will also be hitting the PS5 and PS4 on Dec. 14. No matter which platform you and your friends play on, crossplay is available.
This news has been a longtime coming. Innersloth revealed at the 2020 Game Awards that the game would be coming to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One sometime in 2021. On the day of the announcement, the game launched on Xbox Game Pass for PC. Previously, that was the only way to play Among Us if you were exclusively in the Xbox ecosystem. However, it was also available on PC through Steam and the Epic Games Store, Nintendo Switch, and on mobile.
We're also still expecting the previously announced Among Us Crewmate Edition to launch sometime this year. You can preorder multiple versions of what is the ultimate edition of this game, which all come with various goodies including posters, stickers, plushes, steelbooks, and more. Each one includes a physical copy of the game for your platform of choice and all the DLC and additional in-game content, which includes various skins.
