Among Us players have been wondering what to expect from 5up's upcoming custom map. After revealing his desire to make a custom map in December of 2020, fans have been waiting to see what he has been working on behind the scenes.
Although we still do not know much about 5up's map, the Among Us player, streamer, and YouTuber has revealed a few details which are sure to excite fans looking to get their hands on a new experience.
5up Among Us Map: Everything You Need to Know
YouTuber, "Among Us Academy," has compiled information regarding 5up's upcoming map into two videos. The first video they released covered details specific to the map itself, while their second video revealed information regarding the cost of the map. Most of the details that Among Us Academy provides in these videos come directly from 5up's Twitch streams.
According to 5up, the map will be based on a submarine. The top-level will have see-through glass floors which players will be able to use to spot those below them. On the bottom level, although players will not be able to see precisely who is above them, they will be able to see the shadows of others.
Players looking to get their hands on the map will have to pay to gain access. This is reasonable, since projects like this take much time, effort, and resources to put together. As 5up stated during a Twitch stream, "the only reason there is a pay thing to get there is that the map is expensive...we could have done it a lot cheaper, but we're spending like $50k on this map as a collective." He also revealed that the project "is funded by a bunch of different content creators."
