The popular Xbox and PC exclusive High on Life is now out on PlayStation. Out of nowhere, the game just dropped on the platform during San Diego Comic Con. PS4 and PS5 players can now purchase the shooter which has been created by Squanch Games.
Last week, gamers suspected High on Life would launch. The game was spotted on a rating board detailing a PlayStation platform release. It seems that the studio was holding off until San Diego Comic Con to launch it.
According to Squanch Studio Director Mike Fridley, the PlayStation fanbase wasn’t happy when High on Life was released on Xbox and PC back in December last year. So bringing the shooter to new gamers is great news.
“We have 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.”
The emphasis here is on “very soon” because High on Life is out today on PS4 and PS5. The game costs R1069 and you can pick it up digitally on the PlayStation Store.
High on Life is a comedy first-person shooter where players run around wielding talking guns. Players need to take down an alien cartel threatening humanity and get washed up in all sorts of nonsense. The game launched on Xbox and PC in December and was one of the more successful Xbox Game Pass launches in recent months.
Mike Fridley claims that over 7.5 million players tried High on Life. While we don’t know how far these players got, the game’s popularity was enough for the studio to work on DLC. A story DLC called High on Knife is set to launch later this year on all platforms.
The DLC takes place two years after the main story and stars Knifey, a bloodthirsty melee weapon voiced by Michael Cusack. It also introduces Harper, a new character/gun voiced by Sarah Sherman.
