A small patch was released for Among Us, as well as a small roadmap.

Developer Innersloth has announced that they have implemented a small update into Among Us. One of the first things that the developer spoke on was the cheating and hacking going on in the game. 

"Firstly, we want to be sure to talk about the cheating and hacking going on. It was pretty bad there for a bit, so Forte pushed out server changes really fast," the post reads. "They seemed to help a lot, but some cheats still work and now there are bugs too. There will be more server updates to fix all of this, but rushing anti-hacks is what caused the bugs, so cleaning things up is a slower process. Also rest assured that any threats made in the game are false and your devices and data are safe. If you see a hacker, ban them or find a different room."

Innersloth then went on to reveal what is in the new patch. The patch will add an anonymous voting option, where all votes appear as grey. New task bar modes were also added. Always mode works like normal, Meeting mode only updates the bar during meetings, and Invisible mode removes the taskbar entirely. The Comms sabotage now clears the security logs. Symbols were added to the fix wires task, while cosmetics were added to the meeting screen. Finally, the patch made various bug fixes. 

Innersloth also released a mini roadmap letting players what they are working on. They are hoping to get accounts into the game by December, which will allow players to report those who are toxic or are hacking. Things like friendslists will come at a later date after accounts launch. A new map is on the way, and will be free to all players. The game is being translated into more languages than what is currently available. Finally, colorblind support is being worked on. 

Among Us is available now for PC and mobile devices.
