CHICAGO, OCTOBER 27th, 2021 – Young Horses have revealed today during the latest PlayStation State of Play that their critically-acclaimed game Bugsnax will be receiving a free, substantial update arriving early in 2022 on PlayStation® 5, PlayStation® 4, and PC – The Isle of Bigsnax.
A mysterious island crawling with supersized Bugsnax has surfaced from the bottom of the ocean! Get ready to reunite with your favorite grumpuses and launch an expedition to discover what massive secrets the island has in store.
“We’re beyond excited to be working with our beloved voice cast again! Yuri Lowenthal, Casey Mongillo, Debra Wilson, and Haviland Stillwell are back to dig deep into their characters, and the result is our favorite blend of goofiness and tragedy. You’ll be hearing from a few other returning grumpuses, too, including one you might not expect…” says Creative Director Kevin Zuhn. Read more about what you can expect from The Isle of Bigsnax in Kevin Zuhn’s new post over on the PlayStation Blog.
The Isle of Bigsnax update will also bring new additions to Snaktooth Island. The grumpuses have finally finished your hut, and soon you will be able to complete challenges from your mailbox plus collect decorations to personalize your hut to make it the snazziest on the island. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, you will also be able to put hats on your favorite Bugsnax.
Bugsnax is currently available on PlayStation® 5, PlayStation® 4, and the Epic Games Store. Bugsnax will be available on Steam next year.
