Justin Roiland, the creator of Rick and Morty, is behind High on Life. The game follows the player as they rescue humans across the galaxy from aliens that are intending to use them as drugs. In order to fight off the threat, players use weapons called Gatlians.
High on Life was first revealed during the Xbox and Bethesda showcase back in June. It was also reportedly a Stadia title at first before Google shut down its first party development studios. Now, the game will be released on Xbox and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store in December. It will also be included in both Xbox and PC Game Pass on launch day.
