If you’ve been itching to play Among Us on PC, but haven’t wanted to spend the $4.99 (USD) purchase price for the game on Steam and the Epic Games Store, we have some good news.
From now until June 3 at 11:00 a.m. you can get a copy of Among Us free of charge!
Among Us Free on the Epic Games Store
The Epic Games Store routinely offers free games, with the games on offer always coming as something of a surprise. In the past we’ve seen games like Grand Theft Auto V available for free, and now another hit game is being offered up at a clean $0.00 (USD) purchase price.
The game? Among Us! While the game itself sells for $4.99 (USD) and we strongly encourage spending that money to support the developers, it’s nice to see the game available on PC for free as more players will be able to check out the game and see what it’s all about.
If they like it, there’s always time to spend the $4.99 (USD) for the game elsewhere and support the devs. If the name Among Us sounds familiar but you’re not quite sure what the game is exactly, we’ve included the official game description below courtesy of the game’s Epic Games Store page.
“Life as a Crewmate: Complete all your tasks on the ship to win, but watch out for Impostors! Report dead bodies and call emergency meetings to vote the Impostors out. Hope you chose correctly!
Play as an Impostor: Cause chaos, sneak around, and frame innocent bystanders! Winning involves killing off every Crewmate - think you’re a master of sabotage?
Customization: Choose how you want to play! Add more impostors, tasks, decrease visibility and more. All in style as you get to choose your favorite color, outfit, and hat.
Cross-platform: play with your friends between PC, Android, and iOS!"
To get your free copy of Among Us, you'll need to have an Epic Games Store account. When logged into that account, find Among Us in the store (or click here) then go through the checkout process to "purchase" the game at a $0.00 price point.
Once you've redeemed your free copy of Among Us, the game is yours to keep forever, no strings attached. As noted in the game's description, Among Us does support cross-platform play so if your friends all play on Android you can still play with them while on PC and vice versa.
After hearing the news that Among Us is free for a limited time on the Epic Games Store, what are your thoughts? Have you redeemed your free copy of Among Us already? Would you prefer to spend the $4.99 (USD) on the game on a platform like Steam?
