The Isle of BIGsnax official artwork and logo

[Update]: The Isle of Bigsnax expansion has now arrived, and while it's not exactly lengthy, it's still a pretty fun ride.

According to a recent announcement, the adorable (and occasionally adorably horrifying) Bugsnax will be heading over to Steam in early 2022. It will not be doing so empty-handed, however, but rather alongside a free expansion - The Isle of BIGsnax.

As the name would imply, The Isle of BIGsnax will have you wonder across the newly risen island of Snaktooth in search of ancient, massive species of Bugsnax, as well as the secrets of their existence. Along the way you'll be able to complete around 30 quests and 100 challenges, toy around with 200 decorations to help make yourself feel at home, and most importantly of all, give your Bugsnax friends fancy little hats to wear!

What all of this looks like in actual gameplay, that you can find out through the brief teaser trailer. Have a gander, it's certainly a cute one:

Once we get an actual release date for The Isle of BIGsnax I'll make sure to let you know. For now, however, you can learn more about Bugsnax over at the official website.
