We are used to triple A productions being regularly updated with new seasons of content, maps and modes; but in the adorable world of Among Us, where the players are simple “puppets” who betray each other, even a small setting in menu it can be considered a major novelty.
On Twitter, Innersloth share a preview of its next update, which includes among other new things control options for PC gamers: a submenu from which you can enable or disable mouse cursor control and even open a key mapping table.
With the latter, there are a couple of slots available for control directional (by default, WASD or direction arrows) and to Actions primary, secondary and tertiary. There is no more level of precision, but in practice that should mean that you could assign separate keys to assassinate, report corpses, or interact with the environment.
tiny peek at some improvements to the PC controls/key bindings for the next big update! ✨

Among Us has had an incredible journey, although it no longer enjoys the popularity it had with its unexpected rejuvenation. Now, rather, it is Epic Games that profits by imitating the Innersloth formula much to the contrary of the interests of the small indie studio.
