Wonderful videogame “Among Us” in a very short period has become very popular and conquered the hearts of gamers of all ages. The game cultivates deductive thinking because to solve the crime, namely murder, you will need to rely only on yourself. The fact is that you can communicate only during a pause in the game to discuss with the game partners, who is still the impostor and who should be thrown overboard.
In this article, we are going to tell you about an interesting proximity chat mod for “Among Us”. It is called “CrewLink”.
How does Among Us proximity chat mod work
The CrewLink mod in the game “Among Us” allows you to verbally talk to players who are close to you in the game. This way you can hear everyone in the waiting lobby, but everyone’s sound level will change as the game starts – the closer a player is to you, the louder they will sound, even through the walls. If your team members are farther away, their voice will be quieter, or not audible at all.
This gives the game a certain tension and drama: your friends’ voices are suddenly silenced when they are murdered, or when you scream for help when you are being chased. It also makes emergency encounters incredibly chaotic as players hurry up to be heard.
How to download and install the CrewLink
