Bugsnax Is Coming To Xbox Game Pass Along With Free Expansion Later This Month
Bugsnax was a launch game for the PS5 that also debuted on PlayStation Plus. It is now coming to Xbox Game Pass in addition to Switch.
The game was originally available for the PS4, PS5, and PC through the Epic Games Store. It will get a launch on Steam on April 28 in addition to Xbox One, and Xbox Series.
The new expansion is also arriving on the same day, titled The Isle of Bigsnax. It will take the players on a journey through a brand new island where the Bugsnax are oversized. Here are some details shared on the official PlayStation Blog.
The titular Isle of Bigsnax is a whole new biome to play in, twice the size of any other. The Bugsnax there are equally oversized (but more on that later). You and your fellow grumpuses are shocked when this new land mass bursts out of the ocean just off the coast of Snaktooth Island. You’ll quickly gather up a party of volunteers including Chandlo, Floofty, Triffany, and Shelda, and raft your way over to investigate its mysteries.
With this area, we put a greater emphasis on environmental puzzles that put your tools to the test. You’ll come across vertical mazes that can only be navigated with your buggy ball, and they ramp up in complexity; some are even inhabited by mischievous snax. There are also mechanical ruins that can be opened with clever use of your trip shot and its ability to spread fires. Fun fact: A temple door opening from a lit fire may sound fantastical, but we took inspiration from the works of the real-life Archimedes.
This expansion will arrive in the form of a free update for PS4, PS5, and PC users on the Epic Games Store on April 28. The game will make its debut on the same day for Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, and Nintendo Switch, in addition to Steam. It will also be available to play on Xbox Game Pass on day one.
