The full patch notes for the Among Us version 2022.10.18 update are as follows:

Fun Stuff

  • Upcoming free VR Visor cosmetic drop! We’ve all been super excited about the new Among Us VR news: The game will be available on Meta Quest and Steam VR November 10, 2022! To commemorate the occasion, we’ll be dropping a free VR Visor cosmetic from November 1 – 30, 2022 so make sure you claim it before it disappears! Careful you don’t run into an Impostor while you wear one…
  • Halloween Cosmicubes have returned to the store – is it a trick? Maybe a treat? Be sure to get yours by October 31, 2022! 
  • The Skeld and MIRA HQ are now decorated to celebrate the spook month – have fun! 

Patch Highlights

  • Chewie pet now matches the color of your Crewmate! Yay more flavor!
  • The map now shows your last location when an Emergency Meeting is called instead of where the emergency meeting is. 
  • Added Screen Shake options for non-PC platforms 
  • Lobby names are now randomized in an effort to combat reports of toxicity using custom ones – we are actively working on creating game filters and further our reporting efforts in order to make sure you’re able to play the games you want! Please be patient with us as we improve the game. 

Bug Fixes

  • Please update your game if you’ve been experiencing Child Account issues, as we have been actively working on fixes for some bugs. If an update doesn’t help, please reach out to us at our Help Desk
  • Made Kick/Ban buttons easier to highlight in the lobby and during Meetings after players select “Play Again” 
  • Fixed a bug where the Friends List – Request Permission button couldn’t be interacted with in the Blocked Players tab
