The first-person shooter had an explosive first week on Steam, dominating the sales rankings.
High on Life, a first-person shooter that was released earlier this month for PC and Xbox, has received positive reviews from a lot of critics despite not being a significant AAA hit. The game topped the sales rankings on Steam in its first week, outpacing titles like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and FIFA 23, in addition to doing well on Game Pass, where it was released on the same day.
High on Life, which has eclipsed titles like Halo Infinite, Minecraft, Forza Horizon 5, and LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, is currently the most played Game Pass title in the US. Similar levels of popularity are seen in the UK, where it also dominates both platforms’ Game Pass rankings.
High on Life is now the most popular Game Pass game in the US, outpacing titles like Halo Infinite, Minecraft, Forza Horizon 5, and LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. It is experiencing a comparable degree of success in the UK, where it also dominates both platforms’ Game Pass rankings.
High on Life’s early success has been astonishing considering that it was developed by a small team and was a new intellectual property. What Squanch Games wants to do with the IP moving forward will be a major source of anxiety for many people, but we might not know the answer for some time.
Playable on PCs, Xbox Ones, and Xbox Series X/S are High on Life and Xbox One.
