The developers have now decided to launch the game for Xbox consoles this year. The game will be available through Xbox Game Pass Service. Due to such a demand for the game, it may happen that there will be even more platforms where the game will be available soon.
How Among Us Became so Famous
The original version of Among Us was not so popular at the beginning. The developers decided to launch new updates for the game that attracted a few people to try the game. The original reason behind the game becoming famous is Youtube. Some of the famous YouTubers started to live stream the game that leads to a sudden hike in the number of downloads. Another expected reason is the pandemic also. This is because many people got stuck in their homes trying to find a source of entertainment and finally ended up with Innersloth’s Among Us.
‘Among Us’ is a game that you can play online or create your own room with friends. The minimum number of players ranges from 4 players to a maximum of 10 players.
