On December 14th, 2021, Among Us launched on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. By the way, how to play Among Us on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5? Well, find out that great information by reading this entire article.
Playing Among Us on PS4 and PS5
Among Us on PlayStation Version has Ratchet and Clank customization choices. As of now, PlayStation players are the only ones who have console-exclusive cosmetics in Among Us. Those cosmetics are Ratchet’s ears that act as a hat, Ratchet’s clothes, and Clank as a pet. When communicating to other players by using the text chat, those who are on PlayStation have the upper hand on other platforms because the system uses predictive text and makes it easier to choose words which have been used frequently. Having the ability to quickly type out important phrases is very important, particularly in group discussions. Related to communication, PlayStation party chats are able to hold up to 16 players so using the text chat will be able to be treated as a second option.
However, there is the biggest downside to playing Among Us on PlayStation. There is no account linking between platforms. It means that if a player has played on a previous platform, then the player’s data does not transfer over. Data such as cosmetics purchased with in-game or real currency and cosmic cube tree progress are going to be gone and the players will need to start over. While Xbox has a feature called Looking for Group to discover other players to play with, PlayStation users need to go an extra mile and join Among Us communities to find and play with other players. Using a controller can prove to be a challenge because some players may be used to playing on PC or Mobile.
