InnerSloth announced today their ‘Bug Bashing Bonanza Update’ for their wildly popular online multiplayer title, Among Us.

Staying true to its name, the update has seen over one hundred issues rectified and is available right now. Their announcement outlines the following changes:

Among Us Improvements & Implemented Community Suggestions 

  • Added a Streamer Mode. When active, room codes do not display in the lobby and is replaced by “Click to copy”. This can be toggled on or off in the General Settings.
  • Added Colorblind Settings. When active, the names of the colors will appear next to the players during meetings, and below the player during gameplay. 
  • Account linking for all platforms (minus PlayStation and Nintendo) is back. Follow the in-game instructions carefully as we’ve removed Guest Accounts, but it should make it an easier process.
