Xbox announced thatHigh on Life, the latest title by Co-creator Justin Roilands Squanch Games, has set three Xbox Pass records.
In a blog post, the gaming giant confirmed that the comedic sci-fi shooter, which hit Xbox on December 12th, is the largest game ping game ever launch of any third party title, the biggest ever game ping game release by 2022 and the largest single-player game ever released in Game Pass history. Xbox says this stats are based on the number of hours played in the first five days of release.
The possibility of new IP hitting a similar milestone makes it particularly important in the long run, but high on Lifes is particularly important since the game was originally set to be released on Google Stadium, as reported in June by Axios Stephen Totillo. Since we have learned that Google is set to start a software mismatch, this is just a few months old news.
In High on Life, players are influenced by the role of a teenage bounty hunter who will use human arms to protect the planet from an alien invasion. Like a project from Roiland, this game has ton of humour and Rick and Mortyesque – yet it has been proven slightly divisive so far.
Xbox Game Pass costs $11,99/month. The price for Game Pass is $16,99 per game – also includes Xbox One, PC, EA Play, Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Cloud Gaming.
