KEY POINTS

  • Innersloth revealed the "Among Us" roadmap in June
  • The roadmap includes map 5
  • However, Innersloth didn't provide the release window of the next "Among Us" map

Innersloth announced at Summer Game Fest 2021 that the hit online multiplayer coop game "Among Us" will soon receive its fifth map. While the developer teased the game, it did not provide many details about it. On the other hand, fans are eager to know more about the upcoming map, including its theme, setting and whether it's going to be paid or free.

"Among Us" features a sci-fi setting and it is likely that Innersloth would not move away from this theme in its next map. This means the game developer might introduce the new map in a sci-fi area or vehicle. Some fans believe that following the Airship, they would be treated to a new map that would be set on a train.

If this is the case, it would make a nice follow-up to Airship, which is heavily inspired by Henry Stickmin. There are also speculations about an underground map  paired with a subway system that players could explore. Apart from those, an outdoor setup is also a great possibility.

Most of the maps introduced in "Among Us" feature indoor areas enclosed by metals. An outdoor setting would introduce a breath of fresh air in the game. Players would find it more challenging and enjoyable to find the impostor in the forest or jungle.

Innersloth shared a small portion of the upcoming map at the  Summer Game Fest. The teaser showcased a strange place with a blue pedestal and a yellow button on top. There are also metal doors and floors, which suggest that the map will be set indoors.

Even though it is not confirmed yet, it looks like it is going to be a free update. Innersloth has always released free additions to "Among Us" regardless of the size and content of the update. And it looks like it is keeping things this way and has no plans to change in the future.

While these speculations about the theme and setting of the next "Among Us" map are interesting, it is worth noting that these are not official details.

Fans should therefore temper their expectations and treat this information as highly speculative.
