During Emergency Meeting Among Us #33, we learned more about the upcoming changes for the various crew roles in the game in preparation for the next major update. Prior to this meeting, the Innersloth team has already shared with us one of the impostor roles, the Shapeshifter. Today we learned about the Cosmicube update where an in-game store would be coming where players can purchase skins, hates, and nameplates, and includes achievements. The update is available today.
New roles to update include Scientist, Engineer, and Guardian Angel. The scientist will be busy monitoring everyone’s vital signs from a distance, ensuring their safety, while the engineer explores the interior of the map through the vents. However, if all else fails, the Guardian Angel can help protect other teammates with a shield, ensuring they survive an attack from the Impostor. The Guardian Angel seemed to have the most use as a ghost, providing more use for the rest of the team after they died.
Cosmicube packs had plenty of cosmetic options for the players among us to add more flair to their teammates. The update would introduce a premium currency strictly used for cosmetic items. There are two types of in-game currencies, beans and stars. Beans would be available for specific items in the in-game store, while Stars would be for larger bundles, containing multiple items.
All roles and the in-game store arrived today in Among Us version 2021.11.09.
