Detective Benoit Blanc is bringing his investigative skills to a video game where they might come in super handy.
As part of a tie-in with the mostly-Netflix-exclusive Knives Out sequel Glass Onion, Netflix announced that Daniel Craig’s southern-drawled detective character is getting a skin in Among Us. Log in to Among Us anytime between now and Jan. 10 to claim the free skin.
The popular social video game, in which anywhere from four to 15 people try to survive on a spaceship where one player is a lying, murdering imposter, apparently plays some undisclosed role in the movie.
Put simply, with this tie-in you’ll be able to deck your little space-fella out in Blanc’s rather fetching blue-and-white-striped ensemble, complete with a little yellow ascot around the neck. How could anyone be a deceptive killer while rocking that outfit? You’ll win every game, guaranteed.*
*Victory not guaranteed by any means.
Among Us originally launched in 2018, but it wasn’t until COVID-19’s global emergence in 2020 that the game really took off. People needed something they could do remotely with their friends using just their phones, obviously. At one point in 2020, it had 86 million downloads and a staggering 70 percent of those occurred that summer alone, per GamesIndustry.biz.
And now it’s big enough to get flashy, cool Netflix tie-ins. Good for the developers over at Innersloth.
