Among Us: how to get Glitch pet for free

Among Us picked up the accolade of best multiplayer game of the year at The Game Awards 2020 on Thursda, where the developers Innersloth also took the opportunity to announce a tantalising new map which may be available early next year.

Though most of the characters in Among Us look the same with the exception of the different colors, players also have the opportunity to customize their spacemen with hats, skins, masks, and even pets. Players on all platforms usually need to pay for pets, smaller characters that will follow the player character around the map during a match.

Until 18 December, players on any platform have the chance to unlock a new free pet, the Twitch Glitch pet. This little Twitch logo icon will follow you around as you complete tasks or sabotage the map and kill other players. When a player dies, the pet remains where the body was found for the duration of the game, mourning their friend. To claim theirs, players need to perform a few steps outside of Among Us, including watching some Twitch Rivals streams. Once the promotion is over, players won't be able to access this pet later.
