If you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber who got a shiny, new PS5 on Thursday, you also get a next-gen game for free, as Sony revealed last month. Bugsnax, a super-cute game that challenges you to catch half-bug-half-snack creatures on a mysterious island, is available as part of the $60-per-year service.

You just need to add the colorful adventure game to your library before Jan. 4, 2021.

Bugsnax is also coming out on PS4 and for PC on Thursday, but the PS4 version isn’t available to PS Plus members. Still, the PS4 games for November are pretty sweet: Lord of the Rings tie-in Middle-earth: Shadow of War and Hollow Knight: Voidheart Edition. They’ll be available until Monday, Nov. 30, so subscribers should add them to their libraries before then. Both games will also be playable on PS5 via backward compatibility.
