Hey Xbox fans! I’m Kevin Zuhn, creative director at Young Horses, and today I’m talkin’ bout Bugsnax!
If you’re not familiar, Bugsnax is a first-person adventure game where you collect kinda-bug, kinda-snak creatures and feed them to your friends. You play as a journalist following the trail of lost explorer Elizabert Megafig to Snaktooth Island, where she discovered Bugsnax before mysteriously disappearing. The only way to track her down is to catch tons of Bugsnax and feed them to Lizbert’s scattered band of misfit grumpuses. However, anybody who consumes a Bugsnak rapidly mutates into what they’ve eaten!
It’s a unique blend of slapstick comedy and narrative mystery with a dash of body horror on the side. If that sounds appetizing, then I have good news: Bugsnax is coming to Xbox Game Pass, PC Game Pass, and available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, cloud gaming (Beta), and Windows 10 PCs on April 28!
To make this new launch even more exciting, the team at Young Horses and I have been working hard on a free content update called The Isle of Bigsnax.
The Isle of Bigsnax includes around three hours of new story and quest content where you explore a strange island that has risen from the sea, crawling with giant-sized Bugsnax! You’ll also be able to take on new challenges in the town of Snaxburg to earn furniture and accessories for your personal hut. And I’m always happy to say, you can now hunt down adorable hats to put on your collection of Bugsnax.
There are also countless quality-of-life updates, smaller story beats, and juicy secrets hidden throughout the game. For new players on Xbox, all this updated content will integrate into the game as you go. You’ll be playing a bigger and better Bugsnax right from the start!
I’m truly very happy to be bringing Bugsnax to a new audience, especially with all these free updates, so I can share this strange and silly world with all of you.
With that said, I hope you enjoy Bugsnax!
