Squanch Games announced High on Life at the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase 2022, and it soon rose to the top of the list of Summer Game Fest’s most anticipated games. But we did get to witness a glimpse of gameplay and Justin Roiland’s trademark sense of comedy in its short announcement teaser. It’s out now!
The expected release date is October 2022. We don’t have an official release date yet, but gamers can expect to get their hands on the game prior to the hectic Christmas season. While delays are possible, Squanch Games’ first reveal video shows a game that seems to be rather far in production, so we’ll cross our fingers and hope for the best.
With its announcement at Xbox and Bethesda Showcase 2022, it’s no surprise that High on Life is coming to Xbox One, Series X, and PC through Steam or the Epic Games Store. Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass service will have it accessible from the start of the game. Since it was announced as a “Console Launch Exclusive,” it’s safe to assume that neither the PlayStation 4 nor the Nintendo Switch will see a release of High on Life. This might be an exclusive arrangement with a time limit, in which case the game will be released on other platforms when that time period has expired. We can only assume that this future journey will be available on Xbox One and PC for the time being.
The Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase 2022 teaser and the Extended Showcase’s behind-the-scenes footage are our only two glimpses at the game thus far. The first teaser, which clocks in at just under two minutes, showcases the game’s eye-catching graphic design, as well as gameplay footage and an irreverent sense of humor.

High On Life History
As if it wasn’t enough to persuade us, here comes the weirdness. It’s safe to say that Rick and Morty and High On Life have a lot in common when it comes to thematic elements, aliens, science, and crass comedy. The player character has no future, and there is no incentive for him or her to get out of bed in the morning. Invasion of an extraterrestrial drug cartel ruins all that leisure time, puffing down humanity. The Hyperbong, which allows extraterrestrials to experience the human high, is advertised in ads featuring humans in cages. So now we have to hook up with a species of sentient weapons and knives, rescue their pals, become bounty hunters, and take down an extraterrestrial drug cartel, one boss at a time. It’s overwhelming. We wouldn’t expect anything less from Squanch Games and Justin Roiland.
Is High On Life A Rick And Morty Game?
Seven seconds into the announcement trailer, anybody paying attention will hear Justin Roiland’s trademark character voice, the whining voice of a pre-pubescent Ron Weasley. Our first thought was, “Is this a Rick and Morty game?” after hearing this. There’s a distinct lack of Rick and Morty-related content in High On Life, despite the fact that it seems like it could fit right in. If there are any references to past Squanch Games or Justin Roiland games, we’ll have to wait till the complete release in October to find out for sure.
High On Life Development
Rick and Morty creator Justin Roiland formed Squanch Games to produce High On Life. For years, the mainstays of Roiland’s business have been animation and stand-up comedy; since 2016, Squanch games has provided a way to bring that distinct brand of adult humor to the video game industry. The tone of previous releases, such as Trover Saves The World and Accounting+, carries over to High On Life, but with a much deeper game. High On Life: It’s a “Triple I” indie game, according to Squanch Games, which means that High On Life is the independent gaming industry’s equivalent of a AAA blockbuster.
High on Life is a first-person shooter with a bizarre story. While coping with an extraterrestrial invasion, you’ll take on the role of just graduated high school senior. Even if its storyline and absurd sense of humor appears to be the major draw thus far (after all, this is coming from the co-creator of Rick and Morty) that doesn’t mean it will not provide interesting gameplay.
“Action-Adventure Comedy Metroidvania First Person Shooter” was how the makers defined High on Life during the video. While we don’t know precisely how essential each of those terms will be in the final result, it gives us an indication of how the game will play. The player may expect to get access to previously unavailable regions as they advance through the game by unlocking new weapons and skills. In addition, the game’s comedic elements are likely to be prominent.
That High on Life isn’t an open world has been verified as well Instead, you’ll be given a series of levels to complete, each of which is driven by the game’s sense of humor and amazing visuals. You may, however, choose the sequence in which you complete these levels.
