The Isle of Bigsnax is a Free Expansion Coming to Bugsnax Next Year

Bugsnax Bigsnax

Bugsnax is getting bigger! Also, Bugsnax are getting bigger.

As announced at yesterday’s PlayStation State of Play, a new chunk of free Bugsnax content will be coming to the PC, PlayStation 4 and 5 next year. What, no Xbox? Sorry, no. Bugsnax is a PlayStation exclusive on console and there’s no sign of that changing.

Bugsnax is an action puzzler, set on an island where the residents, the grumpuses, eat sentient snacks which, in turn, transform parts of their bodies into strawberries and so forth. Yes, as cute as it looks it all sounds just a tiny bit disturbing, and this new update seems set to dial up the weirdness.

The Isle of Bigsnax, the forthcoming free content (which will require the main game), sees a mysterious land mass rise from the sea, containing Bigsnax, larger versions of their smaller, more digestible selves. I wonder if they’ll be happy about the grumpuses shoving their smaller siblings into their faces? Could it be the grumpses on the menu this time around?

You’ll have to wait till next year to find out which is when The Isle of Bigsnax arrives. The good news is it’ll also let you put hats on Bugsnax, just to balance out the horror of these giant, possibly flesh-eating new visitors.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
