Back in 2020 during the peak of the pandemic, a lot of people started playing an indie game called Among Us. It’s basically like a game of Mafia where “killers” are hiding in plain sight on board a spaceship and players have to go about completing tasks while trying to figure out who the killers are.
It proved to be a smashing success and the good news is that if you own a PS4 or PS5, the developers have announced that the game will be making its way onto both consoles later this year. Among Us actually launched back in 2018 where it was initially available on mobile and PC devices, but it was probably in 2020 that the game really took off where even politicians got in on the action.

The game has since expanded to other platforms like the Nintendo Switch and it has also been announced for the Xbox Series X and Series S where it will be launched later this year. The PS4 and PS5 versions will feature crossplay meaning that you’ll be able to play with non-PS gamers. It will also feature an exclusive Ratchet & Clank skin, hat, and pet, perfect for PS4 and PS5 gamers.
There is no word on a specific release date for the game, but we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled.
