Among Us Shapeshifter, a new role is arriving in the next update. It gives the Ability to the Impostor to morph into any other living Crewmate.
Innersloth made an official announcement on Twitter about it. The new feature will launch on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X on December 14, 2021.
However, for mobile devices, Innersloth is yet to announce.
Among Us Shapeshifter :
Among Us Shapeshifter can change their appearance and disguise themselves as other Crewmates. Therefore framing other Crewmates and creating confusion.
This impostor can access a menu of all other living Crewmates in the game. And choose one to mimic their appearance (name, colour, and cosmetics).
However, shapeshifting only lasts for a limited time. But you can change the lobby settings.
If you’re within line of sight of your crewmates, they can see you mid-shift. In addition, the shift will leave evidence behind.
However, the Shapeshifters will appear as their original selves during meetings.
Adjustable gameplay options:
- You can change the number and chance of an Impostor having the Shapeshift ability in the game lobby settings.
- Moreover, you can completely eliminate the possibility of having the Shapeshift role.
- 2 Shapeshifters, for example, with a 30% chance of a Shapeshifter role appearing.
- Shapeshift Duration:
How long imposters stay shifted after they change.
- Leave Shapeshifting Evidence:
Whether there is physical evidence of a shapeshift being left in a room after the Impostor morphs.
Innersloth’s blog post says that their playtests made the game extremely chaotic after this change. Especially when players stumble upon two of the same Crewmate in the same place!
In conclusion, this feature will make the game even more chaotic and fun to play. Among Us will have some ‘crazy shifts’ in the game, and everybody is very excited for it.
