InnerSloth has been working extra hard to keep the ball rolling for the hit game Among Us. As such, the developer behind the game recently announced that additional language support will be included in a future update for both PC and mobile versions, along with various other features that will keep the fans entertained.
The social deception game has already reached new heights ever since it had a sudden spike in popularity a few months ago. As such, the addition of these new language options will only help further extend the game’s reach, allowing even more people to play it with ease.
Among Us was initially released by InnerSloth in 2018, a developing team that’s only composed of three people. However, the game saw a sudden rise in downloads this year thanks to renowned Twitch and YouTube content creators playing it on their streams.
There are two different roles available in this game, and players can only take on the role of one — either you’re a Crewmate or an Impostor. The gist of the game is fairly easy. Crewmates have to run around and do several tasks. One important thing that Crewmates need to do is to stay alive and avoid getting killed by the Impostor.
The Impostors, on the other hand, only have one task and that’s to take out as many Crewmates as possible without being discovered. To try and blend in, Impostors can pretend to do fake tasks all while sabotaging the Crewmates’ tasks.
Now, Crewmates have to figure out who the Imposters are and then vote them out of the ship. Needless to say, it’s a very thrilling game to play while you’re trying to entertain yourself during this pandemic.
After deciding to cancel Among Us 2 in favor of further improving the original Among Us game, InnerSloth has made an effort to continuously push out updates for its millions of active players.
A few days ago, InnerSloth debuted the official Among Us Twitter account, which gave the fans a sneak peek of the new map that’s currently being worked on. Shortly after, the account announced that fans can expect new language options to be introduced to the game some time in a future update.
Second… 💬 Languages 💬
Here's the task list for us: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish EU and LA, Dutch, Russian, BR and EU Portuguese, Japanese, Korean, FIlipino (Bisaya).

In a follow-up tweet, Among Us’ developers revealed the list of languages, which includes “English, French, Italian, German, Spanish EU and LA, Dutch, Russian, BR and EU Portuguese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino (Bisaya).” Not only that, InnerSloth confirms that extra languages will be included later on.
Among other things, the new account also briefly touched on the soon-to-be-implemented account system, which is meant to make reporting hackers and toxic players more convenient. InnerSloth said that the addition of accounts in Among Us is considered to be the “highest priority” at the moment.
We can’t blame the developer for prioritizing this though. Cheaters and hackers have become more prominent as of late, and it’s undoubtedly unfair to those honest players who just want some clean, good fun.
Without a doubt, fans can truly see just how dedicated InnerSloth is at creating the best possible gaming experience for Among Us players and we appreciate its team for that. That being said, fans should definitely keep an eye out for this year’s The Game Awards on December 10, as the developer teased that it will reveal some big announcements then.
