The latest Among Us VR trailer confirms the release date for the holiday 2022 season, and Innersloth has confirmed the same. Previously, there have been reports of Among Us VR launching on November 10, 2022, according to a Steam database entry.
The latest announcement corroborates the previous leak. We also expect Innersloth to announce a specific release date for Among Us VR soon.
What Platforms will Among Us VR Support?
Among Us VR is under development for Meta Quest 2, Meta Rift, and Steam VR. It will likely be available on the PC VR and PSVR 2 (PlayStation VR 2) as well. The availability of the title on multiple platforms confirms that players will be able to play across them.
Multiple developers are working on Among Us VR’s development for the same. They are building it from scratch and will sell it as a completely separate game from the originally available title.
However, there is no official word available on crossplay support for Among Us VR currently. Although it’ll be an essential feature due to the playstyle of the game requiring as many players as available to make it more fun.
Among Us VR Gameplay: What to Expect?
The first Among Us VR trailer that dropped at The Game Awards 2021 revealed only a glimpse of what the game will be. However, the latest trailer at the Meta Showcase presented a brief picture of how the game will be in Virtual Reality allowing players to experience it from the first-person perspective.
There will be a minimum of four and a maximum of 10 players per game, just like the original version. Innersloth has also confirmed via a blog post that Skeld, the fan-favorite classic map, will be available in the VR version of the game.
The latest trailer also reveals that the upcoming game will realize the ship in 3D while players will experience the game in the first-person perspective (the original game features third-person perspective gameplay).
Also, in Among Us VR, the emergency meetings will be in person, instead of on the chat screen. The tasks will be familiar to OG Among Us players but with enhanced interactivity. The immersive VR experience will make betrayals more personal and shocking.

Among Us VR is currently under development, and the price of the game is not available yet. We will update this section as soon as the developer or publisher reveals it. The same is the case with the pre-orders for Among Us VR.
