The first ever PlayStation Plus title for PlayStation 5, Bugsnax, is now available for download on the PlayStation Store, and it seems to be worldwide so if you are in the U.K. you can queue the game up ready for when you get your PlayStation 5 console next week.
Here are the links for the US and the UK.
The game has scored well in reviews including our own as we gave it a magnificent 9/10. “Bugsnax is a unique and wonderful experience, and a must-play for anyone who can get their hands on it,” said Nic. “If you’re lucky enough to have secured a PS5, make sure you make the most of PlayStation Plus and pick up your free copy while it lasts. If not, this game is still well worth your hard-earned cash.”
You can read the full review of the game here. 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.
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.
If you don’t have PlayStation Plus then Bugsnax will be priced at $24.99 USD, and is also available on the Epic Games Store.
