Bugsnax PC Preorders Available Now At A Discount

Bugsnax is a fun, quirky game launching alongside the PlayStation 5 on November 12. If you want to play it on PC, however, you can preorder Bugsnax on the Epic Games Store with a 15% discount right now. That brings its $25 price tag down to $21.24–it’s not a huge discount, but it’s better than paying full price at launch. Bugsnax is not yet available to preorder on PS4 or PS5.

Bugsnax puts you in the shoes of a reporter who learns of Snaktooth Island after receiving word from explorer Elizabert Megafig. Snaktooth is home to creatures called Bugsnax, which are bug-snack hybrids that move around like creepy-crawlies and taste like food. You travel to the island to document the island and creatures, but after arriving, you discover that Megafig has gone missing.

Bugsnax is a first-person adventure game that’ll have you exploring Snaktooth Island, taking photos of Bugsnax, and trapping the creatures. All of the humanoid characters you’ll be helping are monsters, much like the kind you’d find on Sesame Street. It’s unclear exactly where the story will go, but the latest gameplay trailer hinted at a darker undertone lying beneath the happy-go-lucky, cheerful atmosphere.

The voice cast portraying Snaktooth Island’s residents is a star-studded one. Prominent voice actors like Yuri Lowenthal (Marvel’s Spider-Man), Fryda Wolff (Apex Legends), and Max Mittelman (Persona 5) are featured as are Debra Wilson (Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order), Roger Craig Smith (Resident Evil 5), and Fred Tatasciore (Overwatch). Bugsnax creative director Kevin Zuhn said that developer Young Horses was able to get all of the voice actors in a room for ensemble recordings. This isn’t common for most games, but Zuhn says “seeing them all play off of each other’s energy was wonderful.”

Preorder Bugsnax on PC

$21.24 (was $25)

Bugsnax is exclusive to the Epic Games Store on PC, and while most exclusives have come to Steam after a year, it’s unclear if Bugsnax has a similar deal. At the moment, you can snag a preorder for Bugsnax at the reduced price of $21.24. After launch, that price goes back up to $25, so if you know you’ll be playing Bugsnax, you can save yourself a few bucks.
