InnerSloth unveiled the upcoming map for Among Us at The Game Awards 2020 where it also bagged two awards. The new map in Among Us is called The Airship, and it's the biggest one so far.
The Airship map in Among Us is slated for an "early 2021" release although an official date is yet to be announced. In the new map, players will have new tasks to accomplish, and a much bigger space to move around. The Airship also has ladders and elevators for players to move from one place to another. An interesting addition to The Airship is that players can start off in different rooms after an emergency room. In the present maps, all players continue from the emergency meeting room.
But fans enjoying the recently-released Nintendo Switch version of the game have managed to access it early. Among Us, the viral hidden-role game that has become a popular pastime on Twitch, is now available on Nintendo Switch from December 15. The Airship map is available to play on the Switch version of Among Us.
As reported by Polygon, some players have discovered an unusual exploit in the Switch version of Among Us. Switch players can actually sneak into the new map and try it early. All they need to do is open a local game, select the Airship as the map, then close that game and open an online one with the same settings. Once they do that, they'll be able to play on the Airship all they like and learn everything they want to know about the new map.
Becoming intimately familiar with the new map could give players a huge advantage when it actually launches. The Airship comes with a wealth of new tasks and rooms for players to get used to as they either avoid or commit gruesome murder. When it's officially added to the game next year, fans are sure to flock to it in droves. After all, Among Us won best multiplayer game at the Game Awards this month, beating out icons like Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The game has a huge player base, and the new map is all but guaranteed to draw them in.
