Here's an announcement we weren't expecting today! The former PlayStation exclusive Bugsnax, a humorous adventure game from the developer behind Octodad, is coming to Xbox and Game Pass on Thursday, April 28th.
Bugsnax was a PS5 launch title in 2020, and proved popular at the time, with our sister site Push Square calling it "an unusual blend of flavours that works wonderfully." It's a single-player, first-person game in which you "collect kinda-bug, kinda-snak creatures and feed them to your friends," blending "slapstick comedy and narrative mystery."
In addition, the Game Pass launch coincides with a free update for Bugsnax called "The Isle of Bigsnax," in which "you explore a strange island that has risen from the sea, crawling with giant-sized Bugsnax," along with other new content.
Look out for Bugsnax on Xbox Game Pass for console, PC and Cloud Gaming on April 28th.
Bugsnax takes you on a whimsical adventure to Snaktooth Island, home of the legendary half-bug half-snack creatures, Bugsnax. Invited by intrepid explorer Elizabert Megafig, you arrive to discover your host nowhere to be found, her camp in shambles, and her followers scattered across the island alone... and hungry! It's up to you to solve the mysteries of Snaktooth Island: What happened to Lizbert? What are Bugsnax and where do they come from? But most of all, why do they taste SO GOOD?
