Squanch Games has announced the release date for High On Knife, the first DLC for the comedy-adventure FPS High on Life. Fans won’t have to wait long as the release is right around the corner with the High On Knife DLC releasing on October 3. The DLC will be coming to PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Squanch also dropped a claymation-style trailer to unveil the release date:
The DLC will focus on the talking weapon Knifey, which will take players on an adventure to a new planet with all-new characters, hazards, and spooky surprises.
The new DLC features two brand-new talking guns as well. One of the new weapons, Harper, is voicde by Sarah Sherman from Saturday Night Live. Harper is an ex-military pistol with a traumatic past. Players will explore a new planet while being hunted by Mux, a mysterious new antagonist voiced by Gabourey Sidibe best known for her roles in Precious and American Horror Story.
“We really leaned into horror with High On Knife, so it only made sense to launch it around Halloween. The DLC brings more goop, nastier body horror, creepier bosses, and all kinds of strange new stuff to the world we established with High On Life.”-Mike Fridley, Squanch Games Studio Director
High On Knife will certainly look to capitalize on the success of High On Life which has surpassed over 7.5 million unique players worldwide since its release less than a year ago. The comical title was the biggest Xbox Game Pass release of 2022 and the biggest single-player game launch on Game Pass at the time.
It will be interesting to see if Squanch can pull off the spooky horror with comedy combination. If so there’s certainly an audience for it.
