Meet Harper and B.A.L.L.: New Talking Guns Join the Fray
Thought the original roster was packed? Think again. High On Knife introduces Harper and B.A.L.L., two new talking gun characters. Harper is an ex-military pistol struggling with her past, voiced by Sarah Sherman from Saturday Night Live. B.A.L.L., on the other hand, takes its cues from pinball mechanics and is operated by a squad of mini-operators doing their absolute best.
New Boss Alert: Mux Joins the Battle
Gear up, because Mux is here to hunt you down. Voiced by the talented Gabourey Sidibe, known for roles in American Horror Story and Precious, Mux promises to be a mysterious new boss that’ll give even seasoned High On Life players a run for their money.
High On Life’s Meteoric Rise to Fame
For those not in the know, High On Life has been killing it in the gaming charts. Since its launch last December, the title has roped in over 7.5 million unique players. Not only did it dominate Steam’s top seller list during launch week, but it also became the biggest Xbox Game Pass release of 2022, among other accolades.
