A brand new map for Among Us was revealed at the September 2023 Nintendo Direct presentation. The Fungle pits players against each other on a mysterious, mushroom-filled island.

The Nintendo Direct took place Thursday at 10 AM ET, showcasing plenty of exciting new games and the return of some OG titles thanks to popular demand.

Nintendo went on further, stating that the new map for Among Us will be available as early as October 2023 and will be available for free for all players. Players will be happy to know there are some new grounds to round up the troops and wreak havoc through betrayal, as they get to search and find the imposter among the group in a new colorful setup with new hiding spots, new tasks, new methods to kill each other, as well as new secrets to discover.

The new Fungle map is said to be a mysterious mushroom-filled island. The news of a new map is a welcomed addition, ending a two-year hiatus since their last map update. It will become the fifth map added to Among Us, following the Airship map, which was released back in March 2021.

The five Among Us maps are as follows:

  • The Skeld,
  • MIRA HQ,
  • Polus,
  • The Airship, and
  • The Fungle.
