⚔️ What can I do in Among Us?

In terms of premise, the game is pretty much the same as old-school Mafia, only it has a Sci-Fi twist.

The game is set in a spaceship, which contains a group of crew members. Among them, between 1 and 3 impostors are tasked with sabotaging the ship and kill everyone.

The catch is that they need to do this undetected, while the actual crew members need to find the imposters as soon as possible.

The original game consisted of a single map, with two more being added afterward in the form of pay-to-buy content.

Later on, the game’s developers decided to include the two maps into the original game for free.

A sequel was planned, but immediately canceled, and the Innersloth decided to improve the original instead.

How can I improve my experience playing Among Us?

Among Us is in no way a system-intensive game, except if your PC is incredibly dated.

As an idea, here are the minimum system requirements to play Among Us effectively:

  • OS: Windows 7 SP1+
  • Processor: SSE2 instruction set support
  • Memory: 1 GB RAM
  • DirectX: Version 10
  • Storage: 250 MB available space

If you don’t meet these requirements, you can always try the help of third-party game boosters to give you the extra edge that your hardware lacks.

The fact that it is an online game is what makes the game prone to issues such as packet losses or high server ping.

Thankfully enough, such issues can be easily solved using VPNs.
