👾👾👾 BUG FIXES 👾👾👾
Being 100% real with you all right now: this is a very small update we already had built-in and waiting to go after launch. The big features of this update nullify some sneaky cheater tactics; we added some fixes to exploits noticed during our Beta Tests.
I know what you’re thinking. “That’s it?! Are you even listening to our complaints?!”
Let me assure you, we hear you all loud and clear. And we’re hard at work making adjustments to the game to address your biggest concerns. In fact — the next patch is coming soon (in mid-December!), and we assure you it’ll be worth the wait!
But, before we push these changes into the main game… we thought you might want to help us test…
✨✨✨ NEW OPEN BETA CHANNEL ✨✨✨
… so, we’re adding an Open Beta channel that you can opt into and live experience our bug fixes! With how integral our original Beta Testers were in helping us identify issues and testing… with thought this would be a win-win solution!
Opting into the Open Beta channel will allow you to play on a different build of the game where the Dev Team is actively working on addressing known bugs. Meaning, you may just get a sneak peak at some fixes before they go completely public — in fact, our first priority test will revolve around an issue we’ve seen a number of you reporting: decreasing the wait time to fill public lobbies (specifically when changing from private to public!).
Here’s how to opt in:
If you’re playing from the Meta Store:
- Go to the Store Page
- Change the Version dropdown from LIVE to Beta
- You may need to uninstall and reinstall the game on your device.
If you’re playing from Steam:
- Right-Click Among Us VR in your Library and select Properties
- On the BETAS tab, change the dropdown from None to Beta
- You may need to exit (not minimize) Steam and reopen to trigger the update
This is also totally optional~! So no pressure!
Bug fixes will be implemented into the base game after we’ve solidified they are working. So, those staying in the regular build will be assured the most stable option — and it’ll be updated accordingly!
