Nintendo has confirmed that the smash-hit social deduction game Among Us will be free to play for Nintendo Switch Online members, starting tomorrow.
The latest free Game Trial available to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers in North America is Innersloth’s Among Us.
If you’ve been living under a rock, Among Us is a delightfully clever online social deduction game in which players must identify imposters in a range of quirky sci-fi locations.
The game was a modest success on its initial 2018 release but was catapulted into the mainstream last year following coverage by a range of popular Twitch streamers and YouTubers.
Nintendo Switch Online members can play the complete game at no additional cost from July 21-27, 2021. It’s worth noting that the game is always free-to-play on mobile devices but usually retails for around $5 on consoles.
For the duration of the Game Trial event, Among Us will also be discounted by 30% on the Nintendo eShop.
Among Us will also be available to purchase for 30% off from 7/21, 10 AM PT—8/1, 11:59 PM PT!

At the time of publication, we don’t have confirmation on the Game Trial being available in Europe. We’ll update this post if the situation changes.
Fans of the game can look forward to some rather splendid collector’s editions set for release later this year.
