New Among Us Patch Adds Colorblind, Invisible Mode and Anonymous voting

If you haven’t played the Among Us beta, which was available to everyone by just opting into on Steam, worry not. The update is here, and some of the fascinating features are embedded in it, such as Anonymous voting and the very desired colorblind mode.

Anonymous voting can be achieved surely makes it easier for Impostors to plant their deception game easier. The new patch also makes task fakes hard to notice because of the new Invisible mode that removes the taskbar during a game completely. The taskbar will only appear during voting so that players can pinpoint how many tasks they have left.

Overall, it’s a great update for Among Us, but it makes the game easier for impostors. Maybe it’s a tiny bit more balanced since good crewmates were almost always available to pinpoint the bad intentions.

Some of the most important features can be found below:

Here’s what this update contains:

  • Added Anonymous Voting option

    • All votes appear as grey
  • Added Task Bar Modes
    • Always mode works like normal
    • Meeting mode only updates the bar during meetings
    • Invisible mode removes the taskbar entirely
  • MIRA: Comms sabotage clears the security logs
  • Added symbols to fix wires task
  • Added cosmetics to meeting screen
  • Various bug fixes

Furthermore, the developer posted a Roadmap full of changes and fixes scheduled for the coming period. Innersloth discovered that a new map is imminent, and will arrive in the future. The upcoming map is Henry Stickmin themed, and it’s supposed to be bigger than the already existing Polus. It will also include new tasks and will be available without the necessity of purchasing a DLC.

  • Accounts. We’re hoping to get accounts into the game by December. This will allow players to report accounts that are toxic and/or hacking. They may be a bit barebones at first but things like friends lists will also come at a later date after launch.
  • New Map. We’re hard at work on a new map (It’s Henry Stickmin themed!). This map is currently looking bigger than Polus! The map will contain plenty of new tasks and will be available for free to all players!
  • Translations/Localization. The game is currently only translated into a few languages (and some of those translations are a bit rough). We’re planning on getting professional translations into multiple languages (More than we currently have, not ready to share quite which languages yet). To all the people offering to translate, thanks for reaching out, but we’ve got it under control!
  • Colorblind support. This patch contains a first pass on colorblind support. We’ll continue monitoring it to see how it performs.

Now, when the mission is slowly accomplishing, he's striving for success and nothing else. Besides that, he quit his full-time job to work on futuregamereleases.com. Being a father of two beautiful babies puts babysitting, gaming, and making poetry out of it a definite challenge. P.S. I play games the way they are meant to be played and consider myself for an Escape From Tarkov addict.
