Moreover, users of emulators like BlueStacks will also not be able to get this beta since it is strictly for PC users.
What’s new in the Beta update?
These are all the changes being added in the beta version. Basically, it will enhance the overall experience of the game by making it more challenging for existing players and provides accessibility to colorblind players as well. Here’s more about it:
By switching to anonymous votes, you won’t be able to tell who voted for who, making things more confusing and challenging. You cannot hold a grudge against a particular player who voted for you since you won’t know who is against you and who is favoring you. Maximum betrayal and deceit.
There are two options associated with the Task Bar. If you choose ‘Always‘ then you can see the task bar permanently during the game. If you choose ‘Never‘, no one will see it throughout the game. Finally, if you choose ‘Meetings‘, you will see the task bar only during meetings. This affects both impostors and crewmates because both sides won’t be able to tell when the game is about to end and how soon their next kill or sabotage should be. Always is the default setting.
Finally, the wires task has a change where every wire has a shape along with its color. This will help colorblind players finish this task easily and quickly.
