Free Yooka-Laylee Update Adds New 64-Bit Graphics Mode
Take a trip back in time to when 64-bit graphics were all the rage with this free Yooka-Laylee update.
It's already a few years old but developer Playtonic Games has unveiled a new mode for Yooka-Laylee on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. You can now play the bubbly platformer in super-nostalgic 64-bit graphics for free.

The 64-Bit Tonic is now available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC!
We've added in the "Yooka 64" model for good measure too. You lot were right, it really does make a big difference.
Accessing the free update is easy: Talk to Vendi, the creepy-looking anthropomorphic vending machine, and she will give you the 64-bit tonic. Drink that up and get ready to take a trip back to the '90s with blocky graphics reminiscent of Banjo-Kazooie, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Donkey Kong 64, Super Mario 64, and the like.
In addition to this new character model for the bat-chameleon duo Yooka and Laylee, Playtonic also added in the Yooka 64 model from the 2D side-scrolling spin-off Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair.
Yooka-Laylee originally launched in 2017 for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The platformer later joined Xbox Game Pass in October 2019, the same month the side-scrolling spin-off dropped. We scored both Yooka-Laylee and Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair a 6/10 in our reviews.
