The recent leak about the distribution of the “Secret Game” in the Epic Games Store was not confirmed: instead of the adventure action of the Rise of the Tomb Raider in the 20 Year Celebration edition, the service has become free AMONG US. It can be added to the personal library until June 3. The action will end at 18:00 Moscow time. Then the distribution of the next “secret game” will begin, the name of which will be known only a week later.
Among US is a multiplayer project from Innersloth Studio. It is united in teams from four to ten people and must prepare a spacecraft to the delay together. One or more members of the group will necessarily be impostors. Their goal is to prevent the rest. All gameplay resembles a variation of the desktop “mafia”, where the players have to constantly communicate, share information and suspect their neighborhoods.
Among US came out in June 2018 on mobile devices, and later reached PC and Nintendo Switch. The trexual success for the project came only in the 2020, when the streamers drew attention to it, and then a multi-million audience. Steam version AMONG US received 484 thousand reviews, 93% of which are positive.
