Among Us Update Comes With Surprise for Players

A new Among Us update -- specifically, Update v2023.3.28 -- is being released by developer InnerSloth, and to coincide with this release, the developer has provided a new update on its website detailing what's new and revealing the patch notes. To this end, we know the update adds some new cosmetics and that it prepares the way for Horse Mode to return. According to InnerSloth, it will be an "improved" version and will be available from March 31 to April 2. With it, crewmates will be horses, and Hide n Seek mode will be "Horse Wrangling" mode.

While this mode won't be live for a few more days, the update is already out. And we know what it does because the patch notes have been provided, and can be seen below. What we don't know is what the file sizes are for the update. The patch notes aren't very long, but if the update is preparing the game for new content it could make the file size meatier. 

Patch Notes
