Among Us,NoobFeed,

The new roles include:

Crewmate Roles

Scientist: Access vitals at any time. Complete tasks to recharge your battery.

Engineer: Can use the vents.

Guardian Angel: Cast a protection shield around the remaining Crewmates.

Impostor Role

Shapeshifter: Disguise yourself by morphing into any other Crewmate.

Roles can be customized completed with individual abilities and more. 

As for cosmetics new items are available for purchase:

Brand new customization options – both free and paid. Visor cosmetics and special name plates make it even more fun to change up your look, plus additional pets, hats, and skins. 

Cosmicubes and unlockable cosmetics. Even more themed items are now unlockable via our new branching Cosmicube system! Play the game, gather resources, and reap the rewards of your murde– uh, I mean, tasks. Cosmicubes are a special feature for Among Us! There will be both paid and free varieties, and have more premium sets of themed items. 

Additionally, there are some controller changes in this update.

The Vent action is no longer attached to the main action button. In order to vent, press V on the keyboard, or Right Shoulder Button on controllers.

Sabotage is no longer attached to the main action button. In order to access the sabotage map, Impostors can simply open up their map, using the Tab key on keyboards or Left Trigger on controllers.

If you have a special role, the action for that role is accessed via the F key on keyboards, or Right Trigger on controllers. This includes the Engineer’s vent ability.

Achievements will be available on platforms that have them! Here’s what you need to know:

Stats that affect your achievements will persist across all linked platforms (essentially your stats are linked to your player ID)

You need to perform the actual action that would unlock that achievement to trigger it on another platform.

Fake achievement example to explain: If you got a 50 card swipe achievement on Steam and want that to unlock on iOS, you would need to do the card swipe task one more time in iOS to get the achievement.

Among Us is now available for Switch and PC.
