In the midst of the numerous titles announced by Sony last June on the occasion of the official presentation of the PlayStation 5, Bugsnax got noticed because of its particular graphics style and the bizarre creatures shown on the screen.
Developed by the Young Horses studio, Bugsnax is a first-person adventure game in which we will play the role of a journalist contacted by a strange adventurer named Lizbert Megafig.
The adventurer claims to have discovered a new animal race that is half insect and the other half-human food and contacts us to document this discovery. In addition to studying these mysterious forms of creatures, our protagonist’s task will be to find out why, at a certain point, Lizbert is nowhere to be found.
In addition to a definitely unconventional plot, the game proves original also for a series of gameplay choices that make the game experience quite varied. Among these it is certainly noteworthy the possibility of taking photographs, capturing insects and using grappling hooks to move from one area to another.
After the video released at the beginning of August, aimed at presenting new characters and game mechanics, Young Horses has decided to announce, through a new trailer, the voice actors who will lend their voices to the various characters and the release date of the title.
Regarding the voice acting, Bugsnax will be able to count on a group of first choice voice actors, including personalities who have worked in several AAA titles such as Marvel’s Spider-Man, Persona 5, Star Wars: The Fallen Order, and Overwatch.
With regard to the release date in stores, it was announced that the game will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC (via Epic Games Store) starting from this November 12, at a price of $ 24.99.
