Gunk’s release date has been officially revealed and will appear on the first day of Xbox Game Pass

If you’re curious to see if they’ll match up with The Gunk, don’t wait long now that Image & Form Games have announced the release date: December 16th.

The team behind the SteamWorld franchise first announced their upcoming exploration game, The Gunk, during the Xbox Games Showcase in 2020. Image & Form Games went silent with The Gunk for about a year before stepping back into the spotlight (and out of the gunk) during the Xbox Gamescom stream in August 2021. It was announced there that the Xbox-exclusive title will be released in December of this year.

Now we know it will be released on December 16th thanks to a new blog post from the team.

“We’re excited to finally announce the release date of The Gunk, our highly anticipated Xbox exclusive from the creators of the SteamWorld franchise,” the post reads. “Get stuck on The Gunk on December 16th – for those of you who are Game Pass subscribers, it will be the start day and date of the service.”

As mentioned above, The Gunk will be available to Xbox Game Pass subscribers on launch day. When the players jump in, they experience what the team at Image & Form Games calls a “third-person action adventure game about a duo of sinister space transporters, Rani and Becks, who are struggling to make money when they stumble upon a mysterious one “Described a planet laden with a wealth of natural resources.” On this planet they discover what is known as gunk that is damaging the planet – but that gunk is worth a lot of money and the duo have to figure out what is more important to them .

While you wait for The Gunk to be released next month, read about this other Image & Form Games title, SteamWorld Headhunter, which was just announced during the Thuderful Games showcase.
