Among Us now available with Xbox Game Pass for PC, coming to Xbox consoles in 2021

Among Us is a game that provided entertainment to millions during the lockdown period and witnessed tremendous over-all success in 2020. The game was acknowledged only recently and it caused an uproar in the community. On December 15, Among Us was launched on Nintendo Switch where it became an overnight best-seller.

Among Us is an online multiplayer game that was initially launched in 2018 for Android, iOS, and Microsoft Windows. Xbox announced on their official blog saying that the game is now available with Xbox Game Pass for PC and will be launched on the Xbox consoles in 2021.

Increasing reach with Xbox launch

Among Us is one of the few games that support cross-platform play. This feature was added in 2018 when the game was launched for PC and it allowed friends to play with each other from different platforms i.e, PC, iOS, and Android.

Owing to the cross-platform feature and the immersive gameplay Among Us offered, Innersloth registered a record number of players for the game in September. With the addition of Among Us to Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S, Innersloth will hope to yield even more positive results by increasing the game's reach to a larger audience.

So far, Among Us is showing no signs of slowing down. It is one of the most streamed games on Twitch and recently, Among Us won the Best Mobile Game Award and Best Multiplayer Game Award at The Game Awards 2020. At the Awards ceremony, developer Innersloth also announced the addition of a new map in the game called The Airship.
