Among Us December 2022 update brings the new Hide and Seek mode, new Cosmetics and more

Among Us was one of the first games to rise to popularity instantly. People quickly became fans of the game as it provided a serious yet funny game style, the no violence combined with the tomato splash kill effect was loved by millions worldwide. Now, Among Us is rolling out their December 2022 update with many features such as Hide and Seek mode, new Cosmetics, and more to increase the user experience by a lot.

What does the Among Us latest update contain

Hide and Seek mode

This new mode is not any typical game of hide and seek. As a Crewmate, your objective is to do tasks in order to reduce the remaining time so that you can win. The Impostor’s objective is to get rid of all the Crewmates.

To avoid the Impostor, crew members must use their limited supply of vents judiciously. The Impostor can locate you when the Final Hide is enabled by using the Seeker map and pings that disclose Crewmate positions. Now that you have two modes, you’ll have to select which you’d like to join: Classic or Hide n Seek with the Game Type option

  • You’ll need to select at least one Filter so you can see a list of available lobbies
    • There are currently 4 filters
      • Beginner: Best for new players.
      • Casual: Best for players just looking to have fun and not take the game too seriously.
      • Serious: Best for players looking to win and play more deliberately.
      • Expert: Best for players who know Among Us well.

The used filters will match rightly. For instance, if you tag it with both “Beginner” and “Casual,” it will only search for creators of games that meet both of those criteria. You won’t see any games with the tags “Beginner” or “Casual” alone.

Final Hide

Final Hide occurs once the Hide Time is over. In these last few moments where the screen flashes red, the Impostor has to catch the remaining Crewmates with some help. Here’s how the Impostors and Crewmates should play this Final Hide time in the game:

  • Impostors:
    • Ping system: Red “pings” that look like circles will appear over Crewmates periodically and indicate where they are directionally to the Impostor. Better run fast or trick the Impostor by hiding after a ping occurs!
    • Faster Impostor: Impostors can a big speed boost to help them chase down the remaining Crewmates. Gotta go fast.
    • Seek map: Impostors get a new Seek map which discloses the general area the remaining Crewmates are in.

  • Crewmates
    • Your only task now is to survive! All tasks are removed and all you have to do is run, hide, and avoid the Impostor. There are many ways to outwit the Impostor in Final Hide, better think fast.
    • Every few seconds you’ll see a red “ping” circle over you which the Impostor can use to find you.

Other Notable changes for Hide and Seek mode

  • Pet your pets! You can now pet your adorable friends while playing and in the lobby. Holding down the button while standing close to your pet will pet them.
  • Haunt button. You can do this thanks to the helpful new Haunt button for ghosts. Track any alive Crewmate, Impostor, or haunt your fellow spirits!
