The new map for Among Us has been revealed at The Game Awards, where developer Innersloth picked up a couple of awards (and were totally adorable with their reactions and acceptance speeches).
Called The Airship, the new map is set on the Toppat Airship, with tasks like polishing diamonds and emptying trashcans. You’ll have to take ladders to get around, while there’s new mechanics like being able to choose your starting position after a meeting, and more.
The original post follows:

The new map was previously discussed in an updated roadmap for the game:
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!
Among Us has been one of the indie hits of the summer, despite actually having released all the way back in 2018. The game was discovered by Twitch streamers, with its paranoia-infused multiplayer making for a lot of fun and plenty of cross-channel collaborations. It helps that the game’s really cheap at just £4.
The game is built for 4-10 players, with one or more players being an “imposter”, and alien interloper who has to try and murder their way through the other players as they try to complete tasks. As murdered bodies are discovered, players report them and call a group meeting to bicker, accuse, and potentially kick someone out of an airlock. There’s tons of options to customise lobbies and tweak settings to balance the game for your group,
In response to the sudden boom in popularity in August, Innersloth set back to work on their now very popular game. It had achieved moderate popularity originally, allowing them to start working on a sequel, but they decided to instead cancel the sequel and put more resources into supporting their now huge audience.
So, if you’re a keen imposter or a mildly fearful human just wanting to complete their tasks, make sure to keep an eye out on what’s next for the game at The Game Awards in December.
