Among Us based mode details:
This mode is going to be entirely based on Among Us where players will enter a lobby and have to complete certain tasks in a small map. An enemy player or ‘imposter’ will be present in the lobby, who can use vent and kill others using the iconic PUBG Mobile weapon, Frying Pan.
After someone is killed or knocked out, players can use an emergency card to call a meeting. The meeting hall resembles the ‘Cafeteria’ lobby in Among Us and players can gather to vote out.
One has to complete some simple tasks in the match. These tasks are are highlighted on the minimap and a dotted path guides the players to the destination. One of the tasks is fixing the pipeline and could be done very easily.
