Among Us VR official key art for the social deduction game

If you're tired of the standard version of Among Us and you're looking for something to help reignite that spark, you might be interested to hear that Among Us VR has now been unleashed for Meta Quest, Rift/Rift S and Steam VR. As the name might suggest, Among Us VR is essentially the same social deduction game as the original, though this time around you're the one personally doing all of the sneaking, vent-crawling and backstabbing, as well as occasionally running away in terror!

Besides a couple of general improvements and extra minigames, the most exciting addition that arrived with Among Us VR is proximity-based voice chat. Only being able to talk with players close to you is a great way to amplify the tension, fan the flames of paranoia, and create all of that delicious chaos that makes a match of Among Us truly enjoyable. So even though it's a relatively simple feature in the grand scheme of things, proximity chat is a real game-changer!

What all of this looks like in action, however, that you can check out through the launch trailer below. Have a gander, it's a fairly short one:

Much like the original game, Among Us VR is great deal of fun... provided you can find a group of like-minded people to play with. Trying to exclusively play solo through public servers is almost always going to end up in disaster as anyone at any point can simply decide to sabotage the match because things aren't going their way. So if you're planning to dive into Among Us VR, I'd recommend snooping around the various Discords in order to find a stable group to play with. It's a bit of a hassle, I know, but it's well worth the trouble as you'll be able to skip past all of the pointless drama and just focus on playing the game.

Whatever your plans may be, you can learn more about Among Us VR and its gameplay style over at Steam. Enjoy!
