The eighth edition of Jackbox Party pack franchise arrives this Autumn.
Jackbox Games revealed a new trailer for their latest Party Pack game at the start of this month, bringing with it five new party games for you and your friends to enjoy. We first heard about the game from the developer back in mid-March this year.
The Jackbox Party Pack games are hilarious, family-friendly party games with a mixed bag of quirky minigames and trivia challenges. Each title is playfully narrated and is likely to have the whole room in hysterics.
Here’s a section about each game from the creators themselves.
(3 -10 players) – It’s alive! The guessing game with terrible drawings and hilariously wrong answers makes a dynamic return. In this revamped title, players create looping, two-frame animations based on weird and random titles.
The Wheel of Enormous Proportions
(2-8 players) – Trivia has never been so large! A fantastic, mystical wheel challenges you with a variety of trivia prompts. Winners are awarded slices of the Wheel’s face with a chance to win big with each nail-biting spin. In the end, one player will have their most burning question answered by the great Wheel.
(3-10 players) – Use other people’s words to create unique and funny answers to classic job interview questions. Go head to head to see who scores the job!
The Poll Mine
(2-10 players) – A survey game that’s all about YOU! Split into teams and see who can escape from the witch’s lair! Players individually rank their choices to a difficult question, then must guess how the group answered as a whole. How well do you know your friends?!
(4-8 players) – A social deduction game where everyone is both a murderer and a detective. Players doodle all the clues, hiding a letter from their name in the weapon drawings. Can you solve murders while trying to get away with your own?
As with all the previous games in the series, Party Pack 8 will be available for all major consoles in addition to PC, Mac, Linux and just about every other platform under the sun. You’ll be able to play with up to 10 players from your phone or tablet, plus have a staggering total of ten thousand audience members watching your buddies make rude jokes at your expense.
The game is similarly priced to the previous games at just under £25. Preorders are available on Steam with early birds being offered a 10% discount until October 18th.
And if you can’t wait a whole month, the previous instalment to the franchise is having a 20% off sale on the PlayStation Store until the end of September.
