Comedy Shooter High on Life Surprise-Launches on PS4 and PS5

by AFEERA


Talking gun comedy shooter High on Life has launched on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 after seven months’ of console exclusivity on Xbox.

Developer Squanch Games made the surprise announcement during San Diego Comic-Con 2023. “The fans have spoken. And spoken. And spoken,” said studio director Mike Fridley. “We’ve been thrilled with High On Life’s reception since it launched in December. Our PlayStation fans have been slightly less thrilled, which is why we’re so excited to share that it’s coming their way very soon. Like now soon! Thank you for your patience!”

IGN gave High on Life 8/10 in its review: “High on Life is a laugh-out-loud funny space odyssey that’s chaotic, bizarre, and a ton of fun,” we said. It was a smash hit, and, with the help of a day-one launch on Game Pass, hit more than 7.5 million players. High on Life was also the biggest Xbox Game Pass release of 2022, the biggest third-party launch in Game Pass history, and the biggest single-player game launch on Game Pass ever.

Squanch recently announced the first DLC update, High on Knife, which introduces a brand-new talking gun character, Harper, voiced by Sarah Sherman (Saturday Night Live) and a goopy new boss named Mux who’s voiced by Gabourey Sidibe (Precious, American Horror Story). Kenny, the gun voiced by Justin Roiland (who parted ways with the studio after the since-dropped domestic violence allegations against him became public), isn’t in the DLC. High on Knife comes out this fall across PC, Xbox and PlayStation.

If you need a catch-up, here’s everything announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2023.
