Among Us, one of the most popular multiplayer games of 2020, is now available for free on the Epic Games Store. The game gained immense popularity during the COVID-19 pandemic. Users will be able to download it for free until June 3.
It is important to note that while you do not have to pay to get your hands on the game, you will need to have an account on the Epic Games Store.
When in the game you will be able to play online with your friends in the game’s newer Airship map.
