Although 2020 has been pretty dark for many, there has been one title that many gaming enthusiasts have been looking forward to. Fantastic voice acting, brilliant graphics, enjoyable soundtracks, but pretty buggy upon release – no I’m not talking about Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, or Cyberpunk 2077, I’m talking ’bout Bugsnax.
Right now, we’re not quite sure if Bugsnax is a utopian or dystopian game. All the bugs in this world are food – or is it that all the snacks are bugs? It’s creepy, weird, wonderful, and beautiful all rolled into one and it even got a song by Kero Kero Bonito, which people can’t stop singing, months after first hearing it.
Now, thanks to the announcements for the November PlayStation Plus games, we know that if you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you’ll get Bugsnax for free upon release.
The gameplay for Bugsnax is a bit of a mystery. The trailers for the game so far really don’t give much away apart from the concept for bugs and snacks being put together and you’re a journalist investigating the Bugsnax story. At first, it looks like you should be collecting these Bugsnax and help the town, but what’s hinted is that there is a darker turn to this story.
This strange game really suits the developers, Young Horses’ style – you may know the team from the hit game Octodad in which you play an Octopus trying your best to pretend to be a real man with a family and everything. That title was just as strange as Bugsnaxs threatens to be.
If you want to play Bugsnax once you have your hands on a PlayStation 5, you can collect the game from November 12 until January 4 2021. The release date for the PlayStation 5 is November 12 for the US and November 19 for the UK and Europe.
