PS5 launch title Bugsnax will be free to PlayStation Plus owners until January!

Sony have dropped the news that Bugsnax will available for free on PlayStation 5 to PlayStation Plus subscribers at no extra cost until January 4th, 2021. This will be an addition to the month’s PS4 games, Shadow of Mordor and Hollow Knight.

The team recently revealed the pretty great cast of voice actors that will play the many Grumpuses and the Bugsnax themselves in the game. Here’s hoping they don’t change Chandlo’s face between now and launch, or there will be uproar.

Full cast for the Grumpuses:
Wambus Troubleham – Fred Tatasciore (Overwatch)
Wiggle Bigglebottom – Kenna Ramsey (Background Vocals – David Foster’s live band)
Chandlo Funkbun – Yuri Lowenthal (Spider-Man PS4)
Filbo Fiddlepie – Max Mittelman (Saitama in One-Punch man)
Gramble Gigglefunny – Sam Riegel (Critical Role)
Shelda Smellywag – Debra Wilson (Jedi: Fallen Order)
Floofty Fizzlebean – Casey Mongillo (Evangelion)
Eggabell Batternugget – Fryda Wolff (Loba in Apex Legends)
Beffica Winklesnoot – Cassandra Lee Morris (Persona 5)
Snorpy Fizzlebean – Roger Craig Smith (Sonic the Hedgehog)
Cromdo Face – Rick Zieff (Terminator 3)
Clumby Clumbernut – Barbara Goodson (Rita Repulsa)
Elizabert Megafig- Helen Sadler (Battlefront)
Triffany Lottablog- Haviland Stillwell (Devil May Cry 5)

AND the many Bugsnax voice actors:
Abby Trott (Hunnabee & more)
Michael Schwalbe (Scoopy Banoopy & more)
Cristina Vee (Cheezer & more)
Todd Haberkorn (Shishkabug & more)
Jeannie Tirado (Razzby & more)
Julie Nathanson (Banopper & more)
Robbie Daymond (Buffalocust & more)
Courtenay Taylor (Cheepoof & more)

Bugsnax was the real breakout surprise from the PlayStation 5 reveal event back in June, capturing the imaginations of many viewers with its maddeningly catchy music – provided by Kero Kero Bonito – not to mention its weird and wonderful world, in which you are what you eat, and what you eat are the living food items known as Bugsnax, which can only be found on Snacktooth Island.

We spoke to Young Horses shortly after the game’s announcement, diving into the music partnership, the iterative process that led to the game’s form, and more. Check out the full interview here.

  1. Back in the day, before I owned a ps vita, I would add ps vita titles to my cart when they were on ps plus, then when I finally bought a vita I had an instant games collection.
    I’m hoping that’s possible with ps5 titles too.

    • I did the same haha

      Should be able to if adding via the store :)

  2. Sounds odd, as if you only got it, if you own a PS5…
    And then only until January, why is that? What are the PS5 games you get for good with Plus in Nevember?

    Not that I care much about this Bugsnack thing, but maybe some of my family members will…

    Middle-earth: Shadow of War is a good Plus gane, though, I might give that a go.

    • Until January, because the PS5 might have some shortages when it launches and giving people an extra month to claim the game seems quite reasonable. So Bugsnax is the PS5 game you get with Plus in November. And December. (Although it’s always possible something else might get added in December as well)

      • You mean you can claim it until then, but it’s yours to keep? Then I misunderstood or misinterpreted, my bad… (I never claimed I was a native English speaker…).

      • That’s usually how it works. You claim it while it’s available as part of PS+, and you get to keep it for as long as you’re subscribed. Normally you’ve only got 4 or 5 weeks (depending on how that first Tuesday works out) to claim them, but in this case it’s available for longer.

        Same thing happened with Resogun when the PS4 launched. Gave you a couple of months to claim it back then.

  3. Happy days. I was curious about this, but now on day one this and Astro Bot is two games I’ll definitely try off the bat. Then Destruction AllStars in the new year. Not bad.

  4. i’m actually really happy with this. I have ordered Miles, now i have bugsnax for free which i was genuinly curious about, astros looks like fun, genuinly a good start for playstation for me
