It's the Crewmates' turn to hide

by Tom Cunliffe

A new update for Among Us has been announced at The Game Awards 2022, introducing a brand new way to play in the form of a Hide n Seek mode. Rather than hiding among Crewmates and waiting for the perfect time to strike, this additional mode has the Crewmates hiding from the Imposter.

Among Us Hide n Seek will release on December 9, 2022, as a free update for all platforms, which introduces the titular game mode, as well as new cosmetics, (pettable) pets, and unannounced surprises.

Hide n Seek is an additional mode that involves the Imposter hunting Crewmates in the open. As the Imposter is known from the start, there is no voting system. Instead, Crewmates will need to hide until the timer reaches zero. Performing tasks will cause the timer to deplete faster, leaving players to determine risk versus reward throughout the match.

Crewmates will be able to use vents to swiftly escape from the Imposter, and will also be notified of other player deaths without the need for an Emergency Meeting (which cannot be held due to a broken button). The Imposter will have a Kill, Seek, and Use button, however, the use of the Seek button has yet to be revealed.
