Among Us VR is set to launch later this year, but those wanting to participate in the upcoming beta test can now register their interest via the game’s official website.
Innersloth announced the VR spin-off to their hit social deduction game, Among Us, earlier this year at The Game Awards. Fans were instantly able to wishlist the game on the Meta Quest and Steam store pages, but an official release date wasn’t confirmed by the developers. Currently, the VR version of Among Us is “coming Holiday 2022”.
Among Us first rose to popularity back in 2020 during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the title was actually first released in 2018. Although originally released for mobile devices and PC, a Nintendo Switch version launched in 2020, followed by a full console release towards the end of 2021. Now fans will be able to play in VR, but the upcoming spin-off won’t just be developed by Innersloth and will instead be helmed by Schell Games in collaboration with the original developers.
There are still likely a few months to go until the official release of Among Us VR, but fans are now able to sign up for the closed beta test. Innersloth’s website states that Among Us VR is a “first-person, 3D experience that places players in the heart of the Skeld, with all the same core mechanics from the original game”. Instead of the original top-down perspective found in the original Among Us, the VR spin-off will of course be from a first-person perspective, which adds a whole new element to this social deduction game.
If you’ve got an eligible VR headset and want to sign-up for the Among Us VR Beta Test, simply visit the game’s official website right here. From here, you will be greeted with a “welcome to Among Us VR!” message, simply select the continue button to begin the registration. You will then need to provide an email address and select your VR headset of choice.
Entry to the beta isn’t guaranteed, but if you’ve been lucky enough to be selected, you’ll receive an email from Innersloth. Follow the instructions in the email to enter the beta program. However, exactly when the beta is set to begin has yet to be confirmed by the developers.
Among Us VR will launch in Holiday 2022 for the PlayStation VR, Meta Quest 2, and Steam VR.
