Among Us became one of the gaming phenomenons of 2020 after surpassing 200 million downloads and achieving the Best Multiplayer and Best Mobile Game in The Game Awards 2020. Alongside these successes, developer InnerSloth promised new content for the game and one of them was a new map: the Airship. This was announced for early 2021 and now it's closer than ever. And there will also be new content coming such as skins and hats.

When is the Airship map coming to Among Us?

As announced by Innersloth, the Airship map is coming on March 31. Regarding the estimated launch time, Innersloth has explained (via Twitter) that there isn't a specific hour yet. It will be during the working time at PST.

The developer, in an exercise of transparency, has explained why it took longer: "We had already considered the game done and had moved onto something else. And while it may seem odd things took a few months, it's quite normal in game development, especially for a team of our size.

"When you work in an official capacity and need to handle various business needs, there are more legal considerations that need to be put into it versus if it were just a side project or mod! [...]creating a map and updates isn't as simple as creating one aspect of the game and throwing it onto the PC.

"Because our game is cross-platform, it means EVERYTHING needs to work on as many devices as possible. (Every kind of smartphone and its various versions, console, etc.) You may have noticed most modifications to the game focus on just PC, as that makes development much easier."

Among Us launched on Nintendo Switch in December and will be soon also available in Xbox One and Series X|S.

What else is coming to Among Us?

The Airship map is not just a new aesthetic area. It will also bring new content in terms of gameplay like tasks, different starting rooms and mechanics such as the use of ladders.

The game will also be deploying a new account system that will make it possible to have a 'friend system', allowing you to transfer cosmetics between devices. It even offers parental control to let you decide if minors can access the free chat or change the display names as a way to create a safer gaming environment for them.

But as expected, new content in form of cosmetics is also coming to the game. And it will be free! The official Among Us Twitter account has shown some new hats that will be available with the Airship update such as angry eyebrows, a unicorn horn, a heart and a chocolate ice cream hat (or whatever shape it resembles).

There will also be a new skin pack to buy along with the game that will include 3 new skins (one of them with a custom skill animation included) and 13 new hats.

Update on March 29: the developer has shown a peek of the new hats and skins coming on the new DLC bundle.

Update on March 30: the rest of the free hats coming with the update have been shown: rubber glove, ponytail, and zipper.
