Goat Simulator for Xbox One and Xbox 360 will cause tons of havoc in April

One of the oddest game success stories of recent years, Goat Simulator, will make its console debut in April on Microsoft's Xbox One and Xbox 360. The game was first announced as coming to the Xbox platform in August 2014.

Microsoft, and the game's developer Coffee Stain Studios, announced the April launch date today with a rather interesting live action trailer. So far, there's no word on what new content or features, if any, will be included in the Xbox ports, which were co-developed by Double Eleven. Coffee Stain Studios first launched Goat Simulator on the PC April 1, 2014 and we wouldn't be surprised if the Xbox versions will launch on that same day this year.

For those of you who might not know what Goat Simulator is about ... well, you get to control a goat who apparently is having a bad day. The game is set in an open world where you can have the goat run, jump, and bash into both objects and people. It even allows the player to lick things with the goat's tongue and drag objects around by attaching them to said tongue. You can actually earn points for this. Yep, it's that kind of a game.

  • Someone tell me the point of this game
  • They just did, read the article!
  • To have fun? Sort of like , you know, every other video game.
  • To be a goat. Duh.
  • It's kind of a game that's bad on purpose.
  • One for the bargain bin
  • The game is making millions, and a ton of people are playing it. So much for your bargain bin. 
  • I believe it was originally just an April Fools joke.
  • To know what it is like to be a goat. ​
  • It's like GTA, but with goats..
  • Goat Theft Auto
  • +830. XD GTA.
  • Sold!
  • To lick things which you otherwise probably can't or are not allowed to :p
  • I can't wait!!
  • Totes M'Goats!
  • I assume it's a free to play game, right? At least I can't imagine anybody willing to spend money for something like that.
  • They sell it for 10$ lol
  • They probably made millions already on the steam version.
  • Need for windows phone
  • Anyone know if you buy the 360 version, you get the XB1 version free with this game?
  • When is the ninja cat on a fire breathing unicorn game coming out?
  • Robot Ninja Cat Riding A Unicorn Attack?
  • I'm scared
  • The goat fetch soup? this is unbelievable.
  • hahahahaha ! Made my day !
  • Stop trying to make goat fetch happen! ;)
  • What's with the goat?
  • The goat isn't having a bad day at all in this game, as a matter of fact, he has a blast. It's the people who live in the same city that ends up having a bad day, the goat literally wrecks their world! It would be nice if this game came out on WP, because I love playing it on my iPhone. 
  • 2015 game of the year!!
  • Got to play it today on x1 at EGX rezzed. Handled pretty well and I came away with a smile, which is a good thing.
  • Dumbest game concept ever.  IMHO
  • If I remember right, it started as a dev training tool to teach their devs physics in the Unreal Engine. The whole goat theme was just to give something fun to do while demonstrating how the physics worked. They demoed it at a dev event and posted a small video on YouTube and popularity and demand for it to become a game just blew up instantly. So they fixed as many of the game breaking bugs that they could but left the physics bugs cause they thought they were funny, filled it with humor and references, gave it a Tony hawk's pro skater-type scoring system and launched it on April fools day not expecting much from it as it never was intended to be a game in the first place. It just sort of happened. It never was supposed to be a good game concept. In the description on Steam, they even suggest spending your $10 on something else like pooling together with your friends to buy a real goat. Sad part is, the game has seen more new content, bug fixes and support than some AAA titles.
  • Wow, awesome info. Good for them.
  • So don't play it then?
  • To anyone that is hating on this, STOP taking the crazy pills! This game sounds frickin hilariously awesome.  I am looking forward to wreaking havoc as a goat. Goats are God's gift to humor.  Whether it's in the bargain bin or behind glass, I'm getting this game.
  • It never ceases to amaze me how many shooting games the world seems to need. Time for some people to move on maybe?
    Give me goats any day..
  • I bought this game this past fall, best $10 I've spent on a game. It's going to be legen-wait for it.........
  • ...dairy
  • Baaaaaaa....
  • I love a cheesy joke.
  • That goat has entered his backdoor.
  • Nice but where is the tortoise simulator? oh just though of a good one... Squirrel simulator jumping from tree to tree gathering nuts.... Be kinda cool with unreal engine.
