Is Among Us Cross Platform? (PS5, PS4, Xbox, PC)

Is Among Us Cross Platform Cover

Among Us is a fantastic and unique attempt at the whodunnit mystery genre. The classic mystery trope of finding a killer among your trusted ones is old, but here it feels refreshing and doesn’t come out as cliche and repetitive if you are going playing with your friends.

Originally Among Us came out in 2018, but it was until 2020 that this indie game saw a huge breakthrough and rise in popularity.

Since then, it has been one of the most popular games that people still enjoy, and in the meme culture, it has become immortal.

Among Us with Friends amplifies the experience by a significant margin. This is where the question comes along. Is Among Us cross platform? Because not everyone owns the same gaming console so a crossplay would be huge.

Is Among Us Cross Platform?

Among Us was originally released on IOS and Android platforms, and the PC version was released the following year.

Being a Co-Op multiplayer, crossplay is a must, and Yes; Among Us is one of those games that supports crossplay and allows players to queue up while being on different gaming platforms.

This includes players on PC, Xbox series consoles, Android, IOS, and even Nintendo Switch. Crossplay helps and elevates the gaming experience with your friends, especially in a game like Among Us which relies on communication and chaotic arguments.

At the same time, everyone tries to figure out who is the impostor. Crossplay is considered a huge selling point in games nowadays because, in this age and technology, everyone has access to multiple gaming devices.

And I think the developers have done a good job covering different gaming platforms and then allowing players on those platforms to interact with each other.

Does Among Us Support Cross Save/Cross Progression?

Cross-Save or Cross Progression is entirely different from Crossplay. Some games offer both crossplay and cross-save options, and some don’t.

In the case of Among Us, it does support cross-progression. This means that any player can switch their platform of gaming, and they get to keep all the cosmetics and in-game items.

If you are buying costumes on mobile and now you want to log in to the same account on PC, you won’t have to buy those cosmetics again. However, stars bought on Nintendo Switch will stay there.

How To Enable Crossplay In Among Us?

Unlike other games, the Crossplay in Among Us is enabled by default. You cannot disable it if you want to. You can join your friends on another platform without any effort.

Invite your friends by providing them with a lobby code. Create a lobby and wait for your friends to join you.

Is Among Us Cross-platform Epic Games And Steam?

If you want to purchase Among Us on PC, you can either go to the Steam client store and get yourself a digital copy, or you can purchase it from Epic Games Launcher.

This does feel like the player base might be divided between these two gaming clients, but this is not the case here.

Among Us has Steam Client and Epic Games compatibility, which means you are free to join your friends on Steam Client if you are playing on Epic Games Launcher and vice versa.
