InnerSloth has teased some big changes coming to the incredibly successful game, Among Us, ahead of a big October update.

After announcing that it would be canceling a sequel in order to focus on providing updates for the first game, the three-person development team is already starting to roll out the updates.

The latest patch, which went live over the weekend, has seen no official patch notes – but that hasn’t stopped the community from deducing exactly what’s been changed in-game themselves.

Perhaps the most robust investigation into what’s changed has come from Attack of the Fanboy, who noticed that some changes have been made to how group decisions are made in the game itself.

You can opt to vote anonymously, adding an extra layer of duplicity and intrigue to proceedings when you’re trying to root out imposters.

Task Bar setting have also been updated to contain three options: you can choose to have it appear “always”, in “meetings” or “never”.

Additionally, InnerSloth is taking steps to make the wiring task more accessible for colorblind users, with more updates en-route that will improve the experience for users that have trouble parsing color.

The beta is available only on PC versions of the game – the changes will arrive on iOS and Android versions of the title in the game’s full release.
