- Among Us Launches on PS4 and PS5 December 14
It'll be popular, but I still think it missed its window by a wide marginID: hhi7jqs
Indeed, it's well past the popularity now.ID: hhid03r
Fall Guys and Among Us really botched their popularity. Needed to team with a studio who could help them develop new content ASAP and have better teams marketing for them.ID: hhig532
Fall Guys was bought by Epic Games and still nothing comes out for it.ID: hhijj7z
Maybe, but they both have major limitations. There's only so far they each could go.
Among Us is very basic and one of many similar games. I think its popularity came from being a multiplayer game you can download and play straight away, with no need to sign up for half a dozen services first.
Fall Guys' whole premise is that it's difficult to control the characters properly and they fall over all the time. That gets tedious pretty quickly.ID: hhluqkw
Among Us is literally made by 3 people. Just like Hallow Knight.ID: hhk7hf9
About a year too lateID: hhlwq36
This game has over 1 million players online right now. Just because it isn't "the biggest thing ever" anymore doesn't mean it isn't still super successful. It's just not relevant to redditors, similar to roblox and fortnite - both of which are absolutely massive.
Why didn’t it release earlier? Wasn’t it announced for PS months ago?ID: hhj3cx9
It was announced back in April... and felt late even then
1 year too lateID: hhjd2oj
Yeah, do people even care about this anymore?. I think this ship has sailed long ago, but to each their own lol.ID: hhk6a4t
I've only played it on my phone, and barely had any good experiences before they dropped all the updates. Plagued by hackers and cheaters, wonky control responses, and now I can't even type in the in game chat, I have to pick from pre selected responses that don't lend themselves to smooth gameplay.
And it's always had dogshit match making. Starting my own lobby meant waiting 10+ minutes to play, watching people join and then leave my lobby within seconds because there were no other players. If the target audience wasn't ADHD riddled children with the attention span of a gnat, maybe we'd be able to play sooner.
I haven't touched it in probably 6 months. It was a gimmicky game that had potential, then they fucked up when they became an overnight success and couldn't figure out how to leverage that into becoming the next big thing.
Mic support?ID: hhiz5gg
Doubtful. There isn’t any on PC. Unless we can do private parties with friends? That way you can creat a voice chat and go crazy lolID: hhjtso1
Not a lot of people have 9 other friends all interested in playing among us. This wouldn’t be such a problem if they hadn’t removed communities
Is there going to be a voice chat functionality? God knows I don’t intend to type out my plead to the rest of the crew on the touchpad.ID: hhiv6k4
You’re already “sus.”
This is way too late. None of the people that I know play that game anymore.ID: hhku7y0
None of the people that I know play that game either. They didn't before, but they still don't now.
Yeah a year ago this was the rage but by Christmas it started to fall off, I don’t know anyone who’s even playing it anymore
This is like, a year late
Does anybody even care about Among Us anymore?ID: hhj0c0d
My 5 yo plays this gameID: hhjki78
You’re being awful sus right nowID: hhibb0y
I play it from time to time but I’ve always been a big fan of social deduction games, I still play ToS all the time for example. Among Us is a good game but it really failed to make the most of its success, there was such a drought for content for so long and by the time they released the new map, most people had moved on.
If there isn’t voice chat this game is going to be a total flop. Literally no one is going to want to type with a fucking PlayStation controller
Needs to be a plus title since it’s missed it’s window only by what……a year ?
My gf plays this daily on her phone still. Never got it.
If it ain’t a ps plus game I’m not playingID: hhigpde
Should be a PS4/5 game like what they did to control a couple of months ago. The bigger the player base the betterID: hhin5is
Jesus, I hope this isn't a PS+ game. It's a nice game and all, but it's like $5 when not on sale and it honestly gets old very quickly if you are playing with randos instead of friends.ID: hhiujhc
Ye this would be a cheap copout for a December ps+ game
Better have raytracing on PS5
Oh thank God.
Yeah I feel like this should have been out and should have been given our for free.
Michael Scott screaming No over and over
Did I ask?
did anyone ever play trouble in a terrorist town on garry's mod?
much better rendition of this game type, should've just let that come to consoleID: hhiawuv
I loved it back in the day. I also played a lot of Prison Break (or whatever it was) and prop hunt.ID: hhicxp7
aghhhh we probably played together man. those were the days
Now my only thing is, will this game be cross generation compatible? I have a lot of friends who are on PS4ID: hhinj2r
I would imagine so. I've played it with family across Switches, PCs, and mobile phones, and I'd be kinda surprised if Playstation wouldn't be able to do the same.
If they would have released this 8 months or so ago I would have been hyped.
For my multi-system folk, this will be on Game Pass day one.
