Among Us Beta Adds Anonymous Voting, Colorblind Support, And More
Innersloth recently made the difficult decision to cancel the sequel to Among Us and instead invest their energy into the first installment, which recently blew up with popularity. That said, a new update has arrived for the beta that is beginning to test out some new features.
The Among Us devs did not release patch notes for the recent beta update, but that hasn’t stopped players from noticing what is new. For starters, players now have the ability to turn on anonymous voting, which will surely make meetings a bit more interesting. As is suggested by the name of the feature, this will allow the ability to hide everyone’s votes so nobody knows who anybody is voting for.
Another feature in the new Among Us beta update is Task Bar updates. This will provide players with the ability to change when the Task Bar appears during gameplay. “Always” is the default, but players can now change it to only show up during “Meetings” or “Never.” In addition to this, there is also now colorblind support, which has added various shapes to the Wires task to make it more accessible for colorblind players.
Among Us is currently available on PC and mobile devices. As for the beta, it is only available on PC. To access the beta, right-click on the game in your Steam library, select Properties, and then go to the Betas tab. Open the drop-down menu and select “public-beta.” This will then initiate a download of the beta on your PC.
