Hugely popular YouTuber Mr Beast, known for his grand-scale videos, has apparently achieved a 100 player game of Among Us, something previously thought impossible in the base game.

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is known for taking everything to the next level, and that ability has scored him a whopping 45 million subscribers on his main channel, with over 7.4 billion views on his videos collectively.

He also has an additional 9.2 million subscribers on his gaming channel, where he does crazy gaming challenges with his friends, well-known YouTubers and his subscribers, frequenting games such as Minecraft and GTA 5.

MrBeast has given away crazy prizes on his gaming channel, like a $10,000 Taco Bell gift card in a Minecraft challenge.

Naturally, Jimmy has jumped on the latest craze to sweep the internet; Among Us. Among Us was released in 2018, but found a new lease of life years later when it rose through the ranks on Twitch.

Currently, the lobby can hold no greater than ten people. However many have considered how amazing it would be to have more players in a single game, and one animation made by the Pixel Kingdom depicting what it would be like to have 100 players in the game has garnered an insane 85,000,000 views on YouTube, so clearly the feature is in high demand.

If there’s anyone to make it happen in reality, it’s Mr Beast. He teased a 100 player lobby on Twitter, announcing the upcoming video on Friday, October 16, though was met with slight scepticism.

It seems that despite many doubts, Mr Beast actually managed to achieve the seemingly impossible feat, as the final video showed a fully operational 100 player lobby of Among Us. There are some minor differences to the original game, but the resemblance is absolutely uncanny.

This video saw various members of Mr Beast’s team attempting to kill all of the 100 players in the lobby, without the other players figuring out which usernames they were going by, thereby establishing them as the imposter.

While it’s not totally clear how exactly he managed the feat, many have speculated that Mr Beast and his team have built their own version of Among Us from scratch, which allows a lobby with many more players than is possible in the actual game, judging by the minor differences.

At the end of the video, Jimmy asked fans to “comment what you want us to do next in Among Us” as “we can do anything,” teasing even crazier content relating to the hugely popular game further down the line.

Mr Beast’s video managed to garner over 6.5 million views on the video within less than 24 hours of it being posted, with people excited to see the results of the ambitious gaming video.

After an unexpected interaction with gaming creators like Quackity, Karl Jacobs, and GeorgeNotFound on Twitter, TikTok star Bryce Hall has said that he’s interested in playing a game of Among Us with Dream.

2020 saw a boom in popularity for both the TikTok community and the gaming community. On the TikTok side of things, there are creators making millions from their social media careers, with countless trends coming from the video-sharing app.

In the gaming community, the sudden surge in popularity of the social deduction game Among Us saw streamers and YouTubers like Corpse Husband and Dream garner extraordinary amounts of attention and, along with Dream’s SMP Minecraft server, have established a huge new community.

Bryce Hall is a hugely popular star on TikTok, currently with almost 18 million followers.

It then only seems to make sense that the two hugely popular (but very different) worlds should collide in some form. Previously, however, popular TikToker and Bryce Hall’s current partner Addison Rae faced backlash from some Dream and Corpse Husband fans, who wanted other creators to be picked over Addison.

Dream commented that the stream was a “blast,” though he did have to turn his chat to emote-only mode to avoid hate.

In another strange turn of events, influencer Bryce Hall who currently has almost 18 million followers on TikTok ended up interacting with a variety of different popular streamers via Twitter, after Dream replied to one of his posts.

Bryce had sent out a tweet that simply read, “Hulu n hangin type of night,” to which Dream tagged Addison Rae and replied, “Is this true?”

Clearly not deterred by the partly negative reaction Addison received, Bryce decided to take his opportunity and quote tweeted saying, “sup Dream, when we playin Among Us?” to which Dream jokingly replied, “when you learn the reply feature.”

And that wasn’t all, some other popular creators got involved with the conversation, Karl Jacobs jumping in to say, “what we watchin?” in reply to Bryce’s original tweet. YouTuber Quackity then asked if he should be following Bryce Hall, to which Bryce replied making fun of his typos.

The interaction was altogether quite wholesome and has got many Dream fans hoping the Among Us game does actually go ahead, as they are eagerly anticipating another stream from the popular Minecraft creator.
