Pumpkin Jack arrived on Xbox One last year and was a surprisingly fun platformer with a wonderful spooky mood. Now, the game is heading to Xbox Series X|S in the form of a free next-gen upgrade on October 27.

Inspired by games such as MediEvil and Jak & Daxter, the next-gen version will be bringing two new graphical options for players to check out. A Performance Mode will target 4K visuals at 60FPS, whilst an impressive Quality Mode will see 4K / 30FPS bundled with ray tracing.

Having played the game last year, we thoroughly recommend it. It genuinely feels like a modernised original Xbox title come to life, with some challenging platforming, fun mini-games and fast-paced combat.

If you're looking for an enjoyable little adventure this Halloween season to distract from the other horrifying games on the market, you can pick up the Xbox One version now ahead of the next-gen launch. It will be a free upgrade when it launches on Xbox Series X|S and is currently on the Microsoft Store for £24.99 / $29.99.
