Developer Young Horses has the Bugsnax release date for the whimsical adventure game. Bugsnax will launch for PS5, PS4, and PC on November 12th. It'll be a PS5 launch title and will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store on PC.

What is Bugsnax?

Young Horses describes Bugsnax as a "bug-eating, snack-transforming, earworm-of-a-theme-song video game". You are an intrepid adventurer who journeys to Snaktooth Island to discover the "kinda bug and kinda snack" titular Bugsnax. Invited by explorer Elizabert Megafig, you arrive to find that your host is nowhere to be seen and her camp is in shambles. It's up to you to find out what happened to Megafig and her followers and to solve the broader mysteries of Snaktooth Island. You can check out a new "meet the cast" trailer for Bugsnax right here:

As newly-revealed by Young Horses via the PlayStation BlogBugsnax will feature a who's-who of video game voiceover talent. Aficionados will recognize One Punch Man's Max Mittelman, as well as Marvel's Spider-Man's Yuri Lowenthal and Jedi: Fallen Order's Debra Wilson. Young Horses says there will be a "ton of goofy and heartfelt moments to uncover" in the final release of Bugsnax thanks to this voice cast.

When can you get your hands on Bugsnax?

Bugsnax will launch for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC on November 12th. It will accompany the PS5 as a launch title. Young Horses also revealed that Bugsnax will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store on PC. There's no word yet on whether a Steam version is planned, but Young Horses makes no mention of timed exclusive status, so we're assuming not. It'll set you back $24.99, but there's a 15% discount if you pre-order the game on PC right now.
