Among Us Online update patch notes, release time: 15-player lobbies, new colours and MORE

Among Us has made a couple of high-profile appearances at this year’s E3 event.

The game was among the titles spotlighted during the Summer Game Fest opening ceremony, where it was revealed that a new game mode would be launching soon.

That’s on top of new character roles, including a Sheriff character, as well as a Scientist character.

Among Us made another appearance just a few days later, joining the countless games previewed during the Microsoft and Bethesda E3 event.

It was during the Microsoft event when Among Us developer InnerSloth announced plans to add 15-person lobbies to the game.

Not only that, but the 15-person lobbies update was given a June 15 release date. InnerSloth revealed additional patch notes during a subsequent tweet.

According to the tweet, fans will be able to select from new colours, while mobile controller support will also be added.

That’s on top of a new kill screen menu, which is launching as part of the June 15 update.

“SURPRISE! One of our updates is coming SUPER soon, featuring: 15 players, the new colours & kill screen menu, mobile controller support, horn honking on the Airship,” reads an InnerSloth tweet.

New character colours include grey, tan, coral, maroon and banana. Fans can also expect a slight graphical update.

Furthermore, it was revealed that Among Us would be released on Xbox and PlayStation consoles later this year.

Likewise, InnerSloth hasn’t announced a release time for the update, although previous downloads have launched in the afternoon. Express Online will update this article when new details are revealed.

Following the June 15 update, InnerSloth will continue working on a new map, which is currently being kept a secret.

Achievements will also be added to the Xbox version, while account linking will allow users to access all of their content across devices.

You can see the Among Us Roadmap features below…

New features:

• A new map – Map 5! Very secret. What’s it gonna be on? Don’t ask me! I’m sworn to secrecy, I’m bad at secrets, and I would like to keep my job.

• Achievements. For anyone who wants to prove they are pros at the game. AKA not me, I’m a very anxious Impostor.

Cancer: Three colours of faeces that could be a sign of a growing tumour in the bowel

This post originally appeared on Daily Express :: Health Feed

Any persistent, unexplained changes in your bowel habits should be reported to your GP; this includes its consistency and frequency for three weeks or more. When it comes to the colouring of faeces, there are certain hues to be wary of. “The presence of either bright red blood, very dark, or black stool can be one of the later onset symptoms of colon cancer [a type of bowel cancer],” said the RCCA. The oncology network reiterated that such a warning sign “should never be ignored”.

“The resultant exhaustion may be caused by internal bleeding and anaemia,” the RCCA added.

One other possible sign of colon cancer is “pain in the rectum, or the urge to have a bowel movement, without producing one”.

Many of these symptoms can be indicative of minor ailments and non-cancerous disorders.

However, it’s pertinent to report these to your GP so that the root cause can be investigated – which may or may not be cancer.

Colon cancer

Cancer Research UK explained that the colon is the first part of the large bowel.

The earlier colon cancer is identified and treated, the better the chances of recovery.

To illustrate, 90 percent of people with stage 1 bowel cancer will survive their cancer for five years or more after diagnosis.

However, only 10 percent of people with stage 4 bowel cancer will face the same odds.

If bowel cancer has spread to other body parts, there are unique signs of cancer to be aware of.

This can include the following if the cancer has spread to the liver:

  • Discomfort or pain on the right side of your abdomen
  • Feeling sick
  • Poor appetite and weight loss
  • Swollen abdomen (called ascites)
  • Yellowing of the skin (jaundice)
  • Itchy skin

If the cancer has spread to the lungs, then the following symptoms might occur:

  • A cough that doesn’t go away (often worse at night)
  • Breathlessness
  • Ongoing chest infections
  • Coughing up blood
  • A build-up of fluid between the chest wall and the lung (a pleural effusion)

“Treatments such as radiotherapy or chemotherapy can sometimes shrink the cancer and reduce symptoms,” said Cancer Research UK.
