Rick and Morty co-creator's new game is free to download today

Justin Roiland's comedic first-person shooter High On Life is officially available from today on Xbox Game Pass as a Day One release.

It’s been an expensive couple of months for those of us who enjoy games. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, God of War Ragnarök, and Pokémon Scarlet and Violet all released in quick succession so a couple of free games might just be the very thing you need right about now. If you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you can currently get your hands on Mass Effect Legendary Edition, Biomutant, and Divine Knockout.

There’s also a free Forspoken demo up for grabs, and we should find out what Extra and Premium tier subscribers will be receiving this month very soon. Today though, I bring some good news for you Xbox Game Pass folk. Subscribers to Game Pass can, as of today, download High On Life - the brand new FPS from the creator of Rick & Morty.

Check out High On Life in action below.

That’s right. High On Life is finally out today and you lucky Game Pass subscribers have Day One access to the release. From creators Justin Roiland and Squanch Games, High On Life sees players use a number of talking weapons to take down the G3 alien drug cartel and save humanity. You heard me, talking weapons. This is by no means a quiet, peaceful game.

At the time of writing, High On Life has a respectable score of 76 over on Metacritic which, contrary to popular belief, is very good. I’d expect this to fluctuate in the coming days as reviews for High On Life appear to be a little thin on the ground. Those coveted review codes are in short supply but the early impressions are positive.

GamesRadar wrote, “High on Life is a confident and capable Metroidvania that takes real pleasure in being as weird and outlandish as is reasonably possible,” while PC Invasion added, “High On Life is a hilarious piece of comedy that also makes for an enjoyable first-person shooter, especially if you’re into Justin Roiland’s brand of humour.” Certainly sounds like a game worth checking out.
