Some really awesome news from Young Horses today as they revealed they will make Bugsnax free on PlayStation Plus for PS5 users. When the game launches on November 12th, if you happen to have a PS+ account when you load up your PS5, you'll automatically have a free game to download and play in the first month of service. Sure, we know, some of you are going to jump in here and be all negative about it and tell us that you're still paying for a subscription, but we don't care. $5 a month compared to $60 outright is a hell of a deal. Of course, the game will only be available for one month like that, so it's basically for anyone who manages to get a PS5 up and running in the first month. You can check out the launch trailer at the bottom.
Bugsnax takes you on a whimsical adventure to Snaktooth Island, home of the legendary half-bug half-snack creatures, Bugsnax.
