A Ray-Traced Pumpkin Head!

The fiery glow of Pumpkin Jack’s carved grin will look spookier than ever thanks to 60fps and a touch of next-gen ray-tracing, adding to the already vibrant and atmospheric world crafted by solo developer Nicolas Meyssonnier in his love-letter to the classic era of 3D platforming.

Making this Halloween treat just that little bit sweeter is the fact that Pumpkin Jack will be cross-buy on PlayStation and Xbox platforms.

This means that buying the PS5 or Xbox Series X|S version will also grant you access to the equivalent last-gen one, and vice versa.

So, if you already own Pumpkin Jack on PS4 or Xbox One, you’ll automatically get access to the PS5 or Xbox Series X|S New-Gen Edition respectively at no extra cost!

The mines health and safety team aren’t pleased… who let that flappy thing in here?

Pumpkin Jack may be a retro throwback to the golden age of 3D platformers, but it elevates it with contemporary graphics that have never looked better, thanks to the new gen’s ray-tracing enhancements.

This is the definitive edition of Pumpkin Jack, arriving just in time for Halloween!
