Among Us beta update adds anonymous voting and colour-blind support

Although it’s not public yet, Among Us has received some new additions to change how matches work and make it more accessible.

Among Us’ belated and sudden success has led to developer Innersloth opting to cancel the planned sequel and instead focus on updating the original game.

The first new update has been released now, but it’s currently in beta and, as such, only available on Among Us’ beta branch on Steam.

Innersloth also hasn’t released any official patch notes, so players themselves have delved into it to figure out what’s been changed.

According to Attack the Fanboy, there have been a few noteworthy additions, with one of the main ones being a change to the voting system.

For context, Among Us has multiple players dropped into a map (like a space station, for example) who are then tasked with completing mini-games to perform maintenance.

But among them is at least one imposter, whose job is to sabotage the other players’ efforts, which includes killing them.

If a player discovers a dead body, they can report it and the survivors must then vote on who they believe the killer, and therefore the imposter, is.

Usually, how people voted has been public to all players, but Innersloth has added an option where voting is completely anonymous, which could add an extra level of distrust among players and possibly make it harder to determine who the imposters are.

There is also an option to make the taskbar either only appear during meetings or not at all.

And lastly, Innersloth has made a change to one of the game’s tasks, to make it more accessible to anyone who has colour-blindness.

The wires task requires players to connect coloured wires from one side of the screen to a matching wire on the other side. Innersloth has altered it slightly so each coloured wire also has a distinct shape.

Hopefully, fans, especially on mobile devices, won’t have to wait much longer for the update to become public.

Among Us is available on PC, iOS, and Android devices.
