“Humanity is being threatened by an alien cartel who wants to use them as drugs,” reads a description of the game. “It’s up to you to rescue and partner with charismatic, talking guns, take down Garmantuous and his gang, and save the world!”
Originally High On Life was set to be a Google Stadia exclusive before the platform shut down its first party development studios. High On Life is now set for release on Xbox and PC.
Ahead of release though, gameplay footage of High On Life will be shown during Xbox’s showcase at Gamescom later this month.
Xbox will have five first-party titles available to play at its booth this year: Age Of Empires 4, Grounded, Microsoft Flight Sim, Pentiment, and Sea Of Thieves. There will also be nine third-party titles available to play including A Plague Tale: Requiem, Disney Dreamlight Valley, Gunfire Reborn, Inkulinati, Last Case of Benedict Fox, Lies Of P, Lightyear Frontier, Planet Of Lana, and You Suck At Parking.
There will also be an Xbox Gamescom livestream on Thursday August 25 from 1PM BST – 7PM BST
