Among Us, the popular multiplayer title, has been an unprecedented success throughout the world. Although the video game was released in 2018, it was not until a while ago that has gained notoriety in the gaming community, from the most casual to the most experienced. Among Us is a title that can be enjoyed by a wide range of people due to its intuitive and straightforward gameplay. Epic Games Store, since last Thursday, is giving away Among Us following his strategic line of giving away games weekly.
Innersloth, the developer team behind the game, has reported a significant increase in gamers of Among Us thanks to the gift of the Epic Games Store. Typically, the daily average number of Among Us players is around 350,000 users on Saturdays, which is when players have the most time to dedicate to the video game. As shown in a graph shared by Victoria Tran, Community Director from Among Us, on Saturday May 22 the game registered around 350,000 users, while the following Saturday, May 29, the daily player count increase to 2 million.
and here it is when it went free on Epic, May 27th
– this shows PC players only
– not all new players, many people grab Among Us on as many platforms as they can and were probably testing it out
– long weekend for Americans, possibly more ppl playing/giving small boost pic.twitter.com/wUag8a4i7A Victoria Tran 🧋 (@TheVTran) May 31, 2021
Victoria Tran attributes the increase in users to various factors. Beyond the availability of the game in Epic Games Store, new players from other platforms that are not the PC they have also contributed to the increase in players. Also, Americans have had a long weekend so probably more people have been playing or testing the game. Either way, Tran comments that the most important thing is that the Overall feeling was excellent and that she is grateful that new players join the community from Among Us. Remember that the video game of Innersloth is still available for free on the Epic Games Store, although the deadline is on Thursday, June 3 at 5:00 p.m. (Spanish peninsular time) until before it restores its original price and becomes payment again.
