While Among Us’s popularity has waned since its resurgence in the second half of 2020, the title continues to enjoy a large number of players and many are expected to return after the new map, The Airship, arrives. Although this scenario was already revealed with a trailer, the elements that it will include were not detailed, but you can be sure that it will lead to many funny situations, because today it was confirmed that one of its elements will be perfect for setting traps.
Developer InnerSloth first revealed The Airship map at The Game Awards 2020 ceremony, identifying some of the environments that players will be able to explore. It was seen that in one sector there would be a platform and in a new video the study detailed that it will be key in some situations.
Among Us was very popular because a player tried to trick his friends into victory and had to use multiple resources in the game to do so. Well, in The Airship users will have a platform available that will serve to transport them from one place to another.
In case you missed it: Among Us was the game that dominated Google searches in 2020.
The new platform will lead to many betrayals
The interesting thing is that this platform will be activated only when the players join it and it will take them to the opposite side and the only way to make it work is by getting on the side where it is, so it will be impossible for the player on the other end order it by means of a lever or button.
Thus, as you can see in the short video below, players will be able to catch players in one place by moving the platform away from them. While it is possible to take another route out of there, this will take more time, which in some situations is crucial and we do not doubt that this resource will cause many moments of tension and confusion.
So far it is not known when this new map will be available, but, judging by how advanced its development is, it is expected to arrive soon.
