The four to ten player social deception game features simplistic visuals and launched way back on Android and iOS in 2018.

Along with taking home the top honours for Mobile Game of the Year, Among Us also won the ‘Best Multiplayer Game’ award.

A new map called ‘Airship’ that’s set to make its way to the game soon was also revealed during the show.

Among Us is available on iOS, Android and Windows.
