Among us Cosmicubes update now released, adds new roles and currencies

Developer Innersloth has revealed that the new Cosmicubes update for Among Us is now live and brings new roles, currencies and more to the online social multiplayer game.

You will have a hard time finding someone who hasn’t even heard of Among Us. As an indie darling who was blown up especially for its ability to bring people together during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Among Us has received continuous updates over the past year. The latest is the Cosmicubes update, and it’s now available on every platform you can play Among Us on.

“That’s just to make money, isn’t it?” the update trailer asks cheekily. “Yes, we live in a capitalist society – money for updates, server costs, team salaries, survival, therapy, food, Boba and a new game.”

Now it’s unclear whether Innersloth is actually teasing a new game or simply saying it is working on a new game, which makes sense considering the studio is a video game development studio. After all, you make money playing games in order to make more games. However, this was a short excerpt from the five-minute update trailer.

The first half of the trailer focuses on the new store and the currencies that can be used in Among Us. More specifically, there are Airship Pods, Beans, and Stars that can be used in the game. Stars can be bought with real money, which can be used to purchase items, bundles, cosmetics, and more. Airship pods and beans are earned by playing the game. The trailer lists killing teammates, completing tasks, guessing correctly, and winning laps to earn pods and beans in-game.

Beans can be used to purchase items, bundles, and cosmicubes. Airship Pods unlock Cosmicubes, and those cubes contain cosmetics and other content that can be used elsewhere in Among Us. All of these new currencies can also be used in the Among Us in-game store, where you can purchase additional cosmetics and the like.

Joining the game alongside these currencies are in-game achievements. These can unlock visor cosmetics, name tags and more. Oh, and you can now link Among Us accounts too.

The final new piece of information revealed in the trailer is the inclusion of four new roles: Scientist, Shapeshifter, Engineer, and Guardian Angel. The scientist can check the vital signs of other crew members. So if one appears dead on their tablet, the scientist can notify the rest of the crew that someone has been killed before a body is found.

The shapeshifter can, well, move shapes. When they kill someone, they can change their shape to take on the looks of those crew members, which can be used to blend in with the rest of the crew while they play as cheaters. The engineer can use the many openings on a map as travel routes, and the guardian angel appears to be a role played by a deceased crew member. They have a more ethereal effect and can provide their crew members with a protective shield. The trailer shows that someone can survive a cheater kill if their shield is up.

The update is now live on Switch and PC (via Steam, the Windows Store, and the Epic Games Store). It is expected to be live in the game when Among Us launches on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One later this year.
