Have you been itching to see more gameplay from Bugsnax? Well, if that’s the case then you’re in luck today. More was shown during today’s Sony State of Play event, and it looks quite good.
Unfortunately, the development team at Young Horses declined to answer the three biggest questions folks had after June’s reveal, but they did provide some new information:
What we will tell you is that Bugsnax is a first-person adventure game where you must solve the mysteries of Snaktooth Island by observing, hunting, and capturing Bugsnax using an advanced array of Snak-catching traps you’ll discover on your journey. Shortly after arriving on the island and encountering Filbo Fiddlepie, the well-meaning interim mayor of Snaxburg.
You’ll explore Snaktooth Island, meet the rest of the cast of furry puppet-like Grumpuses, who each possess clues to the puzzling disappearance of Elizabert Megafig. Each one of these eclectic characters has their own story to tell; they’ll require a little persuasion, often in the form of their favorite Busnax that you can help catch for them and yes, feed to them. Only then will they really open up to you, agreeing to interviews so you can learn more about these curious creatures called Bugsnax, and discover why each grumpus decided to join Lizbert’s expedition.
Bugsnax is expected to release this holiday season, meaning that it should be a PS5 launch title.
