What you need to know

  • Meta revealed the first full gameplay trailer of the Skeld map of Among Us VR at the Meta Games Showcase on 4/20.
  • The gameplay revealed unique VR mechanics like peeking out of vents and gesturing at crewmates with your hands.
  • Games will require between four and ten players.
  • Developed by Innersloth LLC, Schell Games, and Robot Teddy, Among Us VR will launch “Holiday 2022” for the Quest 2 and Rift S.

The Among Us fad has fallen from the crazy heights of last year, so a VR port felt cool but not necessarily vital to try. At today’s Meta Games Showcase, Innersloth and Schell Games proved us wrong: the VR port captures the look and feel of the original in 3D, but adds a level of dread and physical interaction that could make this port the definitive way to play the game.

The gameplay trailer below shows crewmates exploring a perfect 3D recreation of The Skeld, Among Us’ most popular map. And it shows exactly how intimidating the crewmates would really look in real life, instead of an inch tall on a PC screen.
