Among Us Sept. 2020 update went live from developer InnerSloth LLC following its sharp rise in popularity.
While the game was released about two years ago, it appears that 2020 may just be the best thing to ever happen to it. Among Us is currently #1 in the simulation category in the Apple app store, has over 50 million installs on Googe Play, and over 60,000 reviews on Steam. It is currently sitting as the second most-streamed game on Twitch at the time of writing, according to TwitchTracker.
This update will only make things better for the 1.5 million-strong influx of players.
Among Us Update September 2020
The newest update for Among Us is noted as 2020.9.9. There are a few major changes made to the game that are worth going over. These are mostly quality of life shifts meant to accommodate the aforementioned immense migration of just shy of 1.5 million concurrent players.
The biggest update made to Among Us is the lobby code shift from four digits to a larger six digits. This change was made purely to make more unique combinations available as to avoid unintentional intruding on private lobbies. As it turns out, there have been so many new players attempting to play the game that the application was issuing the same codes to multiple unrelated sessions.
However, despite the update being fully pushed through, some players are still experiencing difficulty adapting. Fortunately, a fix is available.
Additional updates include improvement to server health and stability.
