BugSnax is a PS5 launch game, also heading to PS4, PC

BugSnax has been confirmed as a PS5 launch game, heading to that platform alongside PS4 and Windows PC via the Epic Games Store on 12 November.

Announced back in JuneBugSnax comes from the creators of Octodad and has a reasonably simple premise: you eat crazy looking bugs and take on some of those bugs’ characteristics. It seems charming and adorable, but we’re secretly convinced the title is a bit of a body horror affair that could rival the likes of Scorn.

Bugsnax takes you on a whimsical adventure to Snaktooth Island, home of the legendary half-bug half-snack creatures, Bugsnax,” its synopsis reads. “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!”

Bugsnax officially launches for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC players on November 12. Are you excited to get your Bugsnax on? Sound off with your thoughts in the comment section below!
