- Among Us players can claim a free New Year’s hat by logging into the game before January 31, 2024.
- Among Us continues to receive updates and collaborations.
With 2024 right around the corner, Innersloth revealed that Among Us players who log into the game by January 31, 2024, can claim a free hat to celebrate the new year. The New Year’s 2024 hat giveaway capped off the year for Among Us, which celebrated five years of service and had several collaborations with different IPs.
2023 was another big year for Among Us, culminating in a crossover that no one saw coming. In December 2023, Vampire Survivors launched the Emergency Meeting DLC, which is a crossover expansion with Among Us. Vampire Survivors players can explore a replica of the volcanic Polus map from Among Us, and play as several Crewmates to take down various alien monstrosities and gain new weapons in the process. The third Vampire Survivors expansion is only available on PC, Xbox, and mobile platforms at the time of writing, with the Switch version slated to get the expansion at a later date.
Among Us Dev Criticizes Unity Runtime Fees
One of the developers from the renowned video game Among Us joined the widespread discontent and criticized Unity Runtime Fees.
Among Us players looking to ring in the New Year in style will have a way to do so. By simply logging into Among Us on any platform at any time before January 31, 2024, players will receive the New Year’s 2024 hat added to their inventories at no added cost. The New Year’s hat is a silver top hat with a golden ribbon and a star adorning the side of it. While the festive top hat cannot be recolored, it can still be combined with various face masks and costumes players can pick from, including ones available in the Indie Cosmicube until February 28, 2024. The Indie Cosmicube featured items from indie titles such as Celeste, Undertale, and A Hat in Time.

Throughout 2023, Innersloth mostly stuck to its roadmap for Among Us. While it was left intentionally vague, the Among Us roadmap provided the blueprint for the release of The Fungle map, a collaboration with Pusheen, adjustments to the user interface, and various Cosmicube tracks that gave players ways to earn additional cosmetics to show off. While it remains to be seen what Innersloth’s 2024 plans are, the fact that Among Us is still receiving updates five years after its quiet launch is a testament to its enduring popularity.
Between the launch of The Fungle map and ongoing collaborations with Vampire Survivors and other indie hits, 2023 will be a tough year for Among Us to top. Only time will tell what 2024 holds for both Innersloth and Among Us players.
