Does High on Life feature an open-world environment?

Unfortunately, High on Life is not an open-world game. But that doesn’t mean players cannot explore the game. In fact, exploration is highly encouraged and rewarding in the game. Instead of an open world, there are planets which are essentially the levels in the game. Players will travel to these planets to complete various missions and other side activities. These planets are very big and distinct in their size, with a few areas within them. As such, players can freely explore within their bounds and do a wide range of stuff.

Activities include opening Luglox chests, Warp Disk, and bounties. Although you will have to unlock these planets when you progress through the story, you can return to them at any time during your playthrough. You will also get new gear that will help you access some previously inaccessible locations on some planets as well including hidden areas. With this, players won’t feel the need for an open world as the game provides plenty of space for exploration.

High on Life is now available on the Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Steam, Epic Games Store and Xbox Game Pass.
