'High on Life' Needs More Time, Delayed Until December

by Rainier on Aug. 19, 2022 @ 10:10 a.m. PDT

High On Life is a hilarious first-person shooter where you go from a fresh high-school graduate to badass, planet-jumping bounty hunter in a few hours.

High On Life is a weird and hilarious adventure from the mind of Justin Roiland (Rick and Morty, Solar Opposites) and the team behind Trover Saves the Universe.

After a cartel of aliens invades Earth, a freshly minted high-school graduate grabs the nearest talking gun and becomes the deadliest intergalactic bounty hunter across the cosmos. It makes sense, OK? High On Life is coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store later this year.

The alien invaders in High On Life are on a mission to dominate Earth, but with a particularly sinister twist: Garmantuous and his cartel goons are intent on enslaving humanity and using them as a new drug. This also makes sense, OK? Defeating these powerful aliens isn't going to be easy; bounty hunters will work with (or against) NPCs, collect upgrades, and acquire an arsenal of talking guns on their journey. Each of these guns has its own unique personality and special gameplay, and they provide their own narrative take on what's going on.   

Bounty hunters will travel between planets during their adventure, visiting memorable locations like a dense and dangerous jungle, a city built deep inside an asteroid, and a variety of other dynamic and changing worlds. Players will run into dangerous local wildlife, help (or help) a bunch of alien weirdos, and test their mettle against a variety of Hunter Challenges. And you'll never be alone because your guns talk!

Originally planned for October 25, High On Life has been pushed back and is now coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam/Epic Games Store) on December 13, 2022.

Key Features:

  • GUNS ARE YOUR FRIENDS (AWWW)!: Rescue and team up with charismatic, talking guns to become the deadliest intergalactic bounty hunter the cosmos has ever seen. Each weapon has its own unique personality, and you'll get to know these guns (in a cool and normal way) during your journey. They'll share their thoughts and perspectives during pivotal moments, and the decisions you make can lead to different outcomes in the story.
  • GO ALL OVER THE PLACE!: Navigate dynamic and changing worlds that include a jungle paradise, a city built inside of an asteroid, the hub of the cosmos, and a variety of other strange places. These aren't one-way trips, either. Hunters can revisit planets to track down collectibles, rescue human stragglers, and discover Exciting Narrative Surprises.
  • TAKE THE LAW INTO YOUR HANDS OR WHATEVER!: Leverage the unique skills of each gun to go up against a variety of criminals as you track down the nefarious Garmantuous and his gang of alien goons. Hunters are encouraged to strategically choose the best gun for every situation, sizing up enemies and swapping weapons on the fly. Just so you know, these guys have all been extensively researched. They use humans as drugs, so it's totally cool that you're doing this. Seriously.
  • DO SOME OTHER STUFF!: Hunters can hone their skills in replayable Hunter Challenges, earning in-game resources to buy upgrades and an array of alien technology. Warp Bases can be used to recharge your bounty hunter suit and special ammo -- or even enemy encounters when you're feeling bloodthirsty. Get to know a bunch of weird, fun, and hilarious, NPCs! Did we mention that the guns talk?

High On Life is coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam/Epic Games Store) on December 13, 2022.
