Innersloth's Among Us has been a runaway hit, with its incredible success catapulting it into one of the most well-known games of 2020. With this explosion in popularity, the game has been brought to many different platforms, further expanding its playerbase. The game also recently got some additional content recently, through the brand-new Cosmicube Update, adding several new mechanics and features to the social deduction game. The game will not be only adding these new features, but will also be adding brand-new cosmetics Among Us based on Arcane.
Arcane is the latest animated show to be based on Riot Games' League of Legends franchise. It is set to have nine episodes as of this writing, adapting the lore, characters, and world of the game, expanding on them. Arcane also aims to explore the relationships between the central characters, Jinx and Vi, as well as other sub-plots such as the hextech technology and the cities of Piltover and Zaun. To celebrate the release of this animated show, Riot Games and Inner Sloth are partnering up to bring champion-based cosmetics to Among Us.
This is the first official collaboration and in-game partnership that Among Us has worked with. Fan-favorite champions from League of Legends are represented in the game, in the form of hats, skins, and more. Champions that are represented include Heimerdinger, Jayce, Caitlyn, Vi, and of course, Jinx. Heimerdinger's Poro pet is also available as an unlockable little addition.
Many of these cosmetics are available through Among Us' Cosmicube unlockable system. Much like other battle passes, the more someone plays, they can gain XP unlock certain cosmetics in a branching tree path. Much like other Cosmicubes in the game, the Arcane-themed cosmetics are purely visual, and don't have an active effect on gameplay. This Cosmicube is limited however, where players can purchase the Arcane Cosmicube up until December 31, 2021. After that, it will disappear from the game's in-game store.
That being said, once the Cosmicube has been purchased, the ability to unlock the cosmetics and items inside will be kept by the player. Inner Sloth advises that once players buy these Cosmicubes, they should activate them in order to start earning the Pods in order to unlock the contents inside. Even though this is the first partnership that Among Us has done, there's a possibility that more future collaborations can occur in the future too.
Among Us is available now on Mobile, PC, and Switch, with PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S versions releasing December 14, 2021.
