The latest Among Us patch, also known as”v2023.10.24,” has finally brought what every fan has been waiting for, a new map! The latest map was published back in 2021 and it was time for a new one. It finally went live!

Innersloth has unleashed an exciting new update that’s sure to captivate both seasoned players, who have been playing on the same maps for two years now, and newcomers. “The Fungle” map is the latest addition to the hit game, ushering players into a vibrant jungle environment. This release has sparked considerable interest, as gamers prepare to step into this untamed territory and navigate the treacherous waters of identifying the imposters hidden amidst the lush surroundings.


Want to try The Fungle? Update your game ASAP

This new map is only accessible to players using Among Us version 2023.10.24 or later. If you haven’t updated your game yet, it’s time to hit that update button. Missing out on The Fungle’s action isn’t an option for any Among Us enthusiast.

Now, let’s take a closer look at The Fungle itself. This map introduces a range of distinct environments, with sandy beaches, mushroom-filled jungles, and towering cliffs waiting to be explored. Although these settings exude a serene vibe, players need to stay vigilant, as imposters are lurking in the shadows. The beach area, reminiscent of previous maps, contains numerous rooms and isolated zones, providing plenty of opportunities for imposters to strike and sow chaos.

Fresh Challenges and Tasks in The Fungle

As a crewmate, you’ll find yourself engaging in activities like frisbee, fishing, marshmallow roasting, and even pumping some iron in the gym. These tasks not only keep you engaged but also serve as an excellent way to collaborate with your fellow crewmates as you attempt to unmask any imposters lurking within your ranks.

Imposters, on the other hand, can’t resist the allure of The Mushroom Mixup. When activated, this twist in the game swaps everyone’s colors, injecting a new layer of complexity and intrigue into the gameplay. This feature challenges both imposters and crewmates to adapt to the ever-changing dynamics of the game.
