What the Golf's Among Us update hits Switch tomorrow, PC "later this year"

Plus, there's a PlayStation release "soon".

What the Golf - developer Triband's extremely daft, but wonderfully entertaining golfing oddity - is gearing up for a busy few months. First up, its free Among Us collaboration is making the jump from Apple Arcade to Switch tomorrow, 3rd August, and then to PC "later this year". Next, the game will be making its PlayStation debut "soon", with more free content to follow.

What the Golf, if you're unfamiliar, serves up a succession of dependably ludicrous golf-flavoured mini-games, all loosely themed around the notion of hitting things with club. The basic rules are re-jigged and re-written to increasingly improbably degrees with each new level - one stage might see your golf ball turned into an awkwardly rotating office chair, another might send you into space - and the end results is a ceaselessly surprising joy (even if you're not much of a golf fan), that was one of our favourite games of 2019.

Since its initial Apple Arcade release, What the Golf has jumped to PC and Switch, receiving various bits of free post-launch content along the way. One of those updates, the aforementioned Among Us collaboration, arrived on Apple Arcade back in April, but its new overworld and 35+ levels come to Switch tomorrow, 3rd August, with a PC release to follow.

"The Among Golf update lets you golf through the world of imposters and crewmates," Triband explains in its announcement. "Expect betrayal, vending machines, surprises, space rockets, UFOs, vents, cats and other vaguely related items that are great for golfing!" The developer says the update will bring approximately 30 minutes of additional playtime.

Away from Among Us, What the Golf will be making its PlayStation 4 and 5 debut "soon", with Triband promising the likes of DualSense support, as well as all updates currently released for the title, at launch. Additionally, PlayStation owners - alongside those on Switch and PC - can expect free limited-time seasonal content over the course of the next year.

These will feature new stages and other unspecified "surprises", and their launch will coincide with "holidays and other special events" - including Thanksgiving, New Year, Valentine's Day, and Cheese Lovers Day - starting with the Halloween-themed Beware of the Bogeyman. This features five new levels and will be available from 23rd October to 5th November.

Note: An earlier version of this article mistakenly listed the Among Us collaboration as arriving on Switch and PC simultaneously but has since been amended to note the PC version's later release.
