Among Us was one of the biggest gaming surprises of 2020 (despite releasing two years earlier) and developer Innersloth even scrapped plans for a sequel to continue working in the original game. This includes updating it with new content, and a brand-new map is in the works. But just when will the new Among Us map release?
The main map that players know in Among Us is The Skeld, a spaceship filled with tasks to complete and plenty of ways to kill your crewmates. There are two other paid maps for the game, but the free Skeld map is what most players have experienced. They’ll soon be able to play the game’s fourth map–The Airship–which features more than a dozen rooms, new tasks, ladders, and the chance to choose the room you start in.
When is The Airship map releasing?
Innersloth has not given a firm date or even a month for The Airship to release. However, the studio did say it will arrive in early 2021, which means it could potentially be here very soon. It was confirmed during The Game Awards in December 2020.

Prepare yourselves, crewmates. This upcoming (free!) map will include:
🔹 all new tasks
🔹 your choice of what room to start in
🔹 and more?

Tasks include disposing of trash and cleaning gems, but you’ll still have to watch out for the imposter as they sneak around the map and try to kill you when you’re alone.
The Airship will be a free addition to Among Us, with the game supporting cross-play across PC and mobile, and you also get cross-play on the Nintendo Switch version released just last year. This makes it a perfect game to play with your friends while you continue socially distancing, and it’s one that’s made even better if you use a voice program like Discord to taunt each other.
