Indie studio Young Horses announced today that its hit game Bugsnax will be released for Xbox Series X/S, Switch, Xbox One, and PC on April 28. It will also be available through Xbox Game Pass.

Bugsnax’s free DLC update, Isle of Bigsnax, also debuts on the same day for all platforms. Bugsnax was first released on November 12, 2020 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC. In fact, it was a PS5 launch game, which helped increase interest. Broadcasting on these new platforms will expose it to an even wider audience.

In the game, players explore an island while helping its inhabitants and capturing Bugsnax, food-like animals that can transform your limbs when you eat them.

The Isle of Bigsnax DLC gives players a new island to explore and a new oversized Bugsnax to capture. It also adds a few improvements to the base game, including a fast travel feature and the ability to give your Bugsnax hats. You can also get new quests from a mailbox built outside your Snaktooth Island hut. According to Young Horses, the DLC campaign will take around 3-4 hours.
