Among Us is Bringing Horse Mode Back

Among Us Horse Mode

This April, Among Us’ Horse Mode is back!

If you’re wondering what the hell we’re talking about, you missed out on the joy of last year’s Among Us April Fool prank. It started off with a joke tweet, two years ago, but in 2022 it became an actual thing.

Horse Mode turns the normally bipedal beans into centaurs, making this tongue-in-cheek social deduction game even sillier. It also threw in a new “neigh” kill sound, just so you know you’ve murdered an equine. You monster.

It’s back this year, though it’s not clear whether it’ll be optional or enforced. Either way, it’s happening from March 31st to April 2nd. So, you can canter your way around the Skeld and other Among Us maps, completing tasks or offing other horses.

But that’s not all. Hide and Seek mode is also getting a horsey upgrade in the form of Horse Wrangling. We have our fingers crossed that it’s just as silly as it sounds, with horses popping in and out of vents.

Horse Mode may not activate till March 31st but it’s included in the current update which is out now. If you’ve yet to dive into Among Us, it’s free on Android and iOS. It’s also less than £5 on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch. And if you need help playing, check out this guide.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
