Xbox exclusive High On Life delayed to December due to bugs

Xbox’s upcoming first-person shooter High On Life just got pushed further back into the holiday season. The comedic title from Justin Roiland’s Squanch Games is being delayed about six weeks as reported via the game’s official Twitter page.

The game originally was set for a November launch, however, due to what is being described as taking “a little extra time to squash some bugs,” it is now being released on December 13. As with other hold-ups for games this year, this seems to be a circumstance of adding some extra polish.

High On Life is a new Xbox exclusive from the creator of Rick and Morty and Solar Opposites, Justin Roiland, and his game development company, Squanch Games. The game takes biopunk shooting and melds it with the humor that Roiland is well-known for thanks to his hit cartoon series.

In the absurdist vein of his other projects, Roiland’s High On Life puts players in control of an unnamed space-exploring bounty hunter and throws them on a planet of anthropomorphic, talking guns. With these gun, they’ll travel the galaxy to save humans from unknown threats. It features voice talent familiar to Adult Swim faithful such as Roiland himself, Zach Hadel, Michael Cusack, and even J.B. Smoove.

Those interested can get their hands on a talking gun with High On Life on December 13, 2022. The game is set to launch exclusively for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Windows PC. High On Life will also be available via Xbox Game pass on release day.

The best Bethesda games of all time
Soldiers about to fight with a giant in the background.

Bethesda is one of the rare cases of a game developer finding so much success that it branched out to become one of the biggest publishers in the Western gaming market. While not quite as gigantic as the likes of Activision or EA, Bethesda has a great stable of developers, itself included, that have made some of the most ambitious games on the market. Whether it's the cutting-edge technology coming out of ID Software, the high-octane FPS action of Machine Games, or even the more experimental titles from Arkane, Bethesda's name is attached to far more than just its high-profile RPG series.

Since it was acquired by Microsoft, all of Bethesda's games, including the games made by the studios under it, will be console-exclusive to the X-box platform moving forward. However, there is a long history of games already released for multiple platforms, and between all the studios Bethesda is in charge of, there are games of all types to check out. You will obviously know the major players here, such as The Elder Scrolls and Fallout, but there are way more Bethesda games that are just as good. That's why we've rounded up this list of the best Bethesda games of all time.
