Among Us VR Patch 4: 🍕 Hot Out the Oven! 🔥
Patch 4 Time! Get ready to update your spacesuits and embrace an upgraded Skeld II — some in-game changes have arrived. Our finest Crewmates have installed a new mode to your lobbies — the power of customization! That’s right: Custom Lobby Settings, the thing you’ve all been asking for, is now at your fingertips (or is it bean-gertips?)!
✨ Introducing Custom Lobby Settings! ✨
Over 9 billion customization configurations are being added to Among Us VR with this upcoming feature. We’re not even joking. One of our devs did the math. By hand. Using an abacus. Our team is truly dedicated. 😭😭😭
These settings will allow the host of a lobby to adjust the pace, balance, and general rules of how a match plays out! Want to favor the Crewmates? Go ahead! Think Impostors deserve an edge? We’re a bit skeptical… but do you, my friend. ⚖️ We’ve even added a little indicator to give you a bit of insight on just how much you might be skewing the default game balance. ⚖️This balance indicator shows how your personal settings compare to the default ones, but your mileage may vary — ie, we’re not perfect, so don’t be upset if it deceives you a little bit. 🤐
Crewmates with experience in the original Among Us will recognize many of the familiar Custom Lobby Settings, but we’ve thrown in some fun new exclusive-to-VR treats as well. For instance, you can enable “Hands Visible” at all times so that faking a task requires Impostors to not only stand near the proper station, but mime doing the task as well. It’s straight devious.
Here’s the full modifier list:
- Number of Impostors
- Kill Cooldown
- Hands Visible
- Chat Enabled
- Crew Vision
- Impostor Vision
- Number of Emergency Meetings
- Number of Long Tasks
- Number of Short Tasks
- Visual Tasks
- Taskbar Updates
- Report Bodies
- Discussion Time
- Voting Time
- Anonymous Voting
- Ejections Show Role
- Door Sabotage
- Sabotage Cooldown
✨ Billions Of New Ways To Play! ✨
Given the above list, the team has put together a few experimental customization setups below to get your bean noggins churning. But, of course, feel free to create your own special rules to play how YOU want! If you do discover any specific combos you find enjoyable, let us know on our Among Us VR Discord!
🔎🔎 Where’s The Proof? 🔍🔍
Without skewing the scales too much, it can be fun to play with a little bit more vagueness and scarcity of information. Put your social deduction skills to the ultimate test by wiping away any shred of evidence.

The Pizza Time hat is now hot and fresh in your Wardrobe.
And, if that doesn’t satiate your hunger for hats… the Hat Pack: Accidental Favorites DLC is available today for $4.99 USD — featuring some go-to toppers from the original game:

✨ Into the Unknown We Go! ✨
We’ll continue to listen to your feedback and would like to extend another full course thank you to all of our players. Together, we’re checking off our Task Lists and making Among Us VR the best VR Space Bean Game of all time!
