Julia Lee (she/her) is a guides producer, writing guides for games like The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Genshin Impact. She helped launch the Rift Herald in 2016.

A new patch for Among Us was released on Monday, adding some highly anticipated features, like colorblind support for the wire-fixing tasks.

Now each side of the wires will have symbols, so you’ll know which ends to line up, even if you have a hard time parsing the colors. In addition to this, accessories, like sticky notes that say “DUM” or fried eggs, will show up in the discussion lobby, rather than just showing your plain crewmate.

Room hosts are also be able to toggle new features, like anonymous voting, so people won’t be able to tell who voted for who. There is also the ability to toggle how the task bar moves. Rather than having it go up in real time as people do tasks, it can be changed to only go up after meetings or not be shown at all.

Developer InnerSloth is also working on adding player accounts, so people can be reported for hacking or toxicity, according to Among Us’ new roadmap. The developer is also working on a new map, more localization options, and more colorblind support.

The next level of puzzles.
