League of Legends’ Arcane Appears In Among Us Through Cosmetic Cosmicube
The League-of-Legends-and-Netflix series Arcane appeared in Among Us through the popular indie game’s first-ever cosmetic system, Cosmicube. Arcane is a prequel to Riot Games’ MOBA League of Legends. It tells the story of Jinx, Vi, and other franchise characters. The series explores the conflict that plague Piltover, a utopian capital, and Zaun, the oppressed underground below it – all the while Hextech threatens to change the status quo. On November 6, the series debuted on Netflix.
Riot created RiotX Arcane, a cross-platform event covering multiple properties to maximize media attention and celebrate the TV series. Crossovers have been a popular marketing strategy for many gaming franchises and companies in recent years. Fortnite has become an outlet for advertisers, comic books, and movies. Other games, such as Fall Guys, have used strategic partnerships to reach a wider audience. Although Among Us has not seen many crossovers, Innersloth carefully decided which franchises could use its iconic blob. This includes the Fall Guys’skin with the Imposter look. A Fortnite and Among Us crossover has been announced. Fortnite confirmed that Among Us’s Imposters mode inspired it. Among us has finally created its next big crossover with a Riot IP.
Riot Games and Innersloth have announced that League of Legends Arcane is now in among Us through the game’s new in-game cosmetics system, Cosmicube. This crossover event will bring League of Legends characters Heimerdinger Jayce, Caitlyn, and Jayce to the social deduction game via unlockable skins in-game. These skins can be purchased through Among us’s Cosmicube. They will remain available until December 31, 2021. The ArcaneCosmicube will disappear after December 31, and only those who bought it will be able to access its contents. Cosmicube owners will be able to unlock the Arcanecosmetics once they have purchased it. This can be done by obtaining pods through gameplay.

The Arcanecosmetics items are pretty extensive, and Among Us, players have many options to show off their new vanity. The League of Legends Arcanecrossover Event allows Riot Games to increase its new series, foster a wider audience for its Netflix series, and provide new microtransactions that Among Us players can use. The new Cosmicube is uncontroversial, as skins do not offer pay-to-win mechanisms.
The Arcanecrossover introduces Among Us’ new Cosmicube. This hints at future offerings. Although the Cosmicube is a battle pass, players can choose which vanity items they want to unlock first using its branching path feature. Although it is not clear what cosmetics will be available in the social deduction game yet, it is likely that Among Us will begin to use this new Cosmicube soon.
It is introducing a new role that allows impostors to mimic their crewmates just in time for Halloween. This will add more stress to an already stressful game. Among Us already got into the Halloween spirit with Halloween features such as spooky costumes and decorated maps. This will surely make things more fun.
Since its launch in 2018, Innersloth has been working hard on the game. Among Us has enjoyed a considerable rise in popularity over the last year. It will continue to attract attention as it launched on Playstation and Xbox Gamepass later in 2018. Although some of the changes, such as accessibility features, may seem minor, the significant additions to the game, like an increase in lobby size or the introduction of new roles, keep it fresh. Among Us inspired many imitators, including the drama with Fortnite’s Impostors mode. Between we inspired this. However, Innersloth continues to work to make the original game feel fresh and exciting.
On the Innersloth site, the company announced a new role called the Shapeshifter. The Shapeshifter role is an Impostor that can alter its appearance to any other player in the game. The player’s skin color, name, and skin choice are affected by the change. They appear identical to their target for a short time. The change does not happen instantly and leaves evidence so crew members with sharp eyes may see it happening or figure out that a Shapeshifter has entered their ranks. This new role came just as the game was becoming more accessible with accessibility features.
The inclusion of the Shapeshifter in Among us is configurable, just like the other roles. You can set the number of Shapeshifters allowed in each game and how likely they are to be present. Or, you can disable them altogether. You can also change the time that Shapeshifting lasts and whether or not there is any physical evidence for other players to see. Although no release date was announced, the announcement teased that there would be an exceptional event offering more information. The roadmap trailer Innersloth released a few months ago promised quite some new roles and maps. So the Shapeshifter could be just one part of what’s in store.
Among us has struggled to maintain a large player base, but it still has its adherents. The addition of new roles such as the Shapeshifter will likely help keep the game’s existing players and attract new players. The fifth map, Amongst Us, is still in development, so players have plenty to look forward to.
