These roles are customizable, meaning players can add or remove roles according to their preferrence.
Grab special cosmetics through Among Us’ new Cosmicube feature
“Cosmicubes are a new way for you to get exclusive cosmetics and show off your gear,” Innersloth says. Cosmicubes is a new branching system through which players can obtain cubes containing special items. Cosmicubes are available in free and paid variants. They can be purchased using Beans or Stars but their content can be unlocked by earning Pods.
Players can get earn Beans through regular online gameplay whereas Stars can be obtained for cash. Pods can be obtained through gameplay only if the player has Cosmicube activated. Innersloth says “Each Cosmicube has a different type of Pod associated with its contents, and Pods cannot be transferred between Cosmicubes.”
As of now, you can link your Among Us account on different platforms and retain the cosmetics. “For most platforms, you’ll be able to log in, link, and save your progress and cosmetics using the same account.” The only exception is Stars purchased on Nintendo Switch. “Stars purchased on Nintendo Switch™ will only be usable on that system. In the future, Pods & Beans earned on Switch can be shared across most systems. It’s not currently available with this update, but we’re working on it,” Innersloth said.
