Jackbox Party Pack 8 will be released on October 14, providing fans with a new batch of silly party games just in time for all those Halloween gatherings. The game will be available on PlayStation and Xbox consoles, as well as the Nintendo Switch and PC.
So, what exactly has changed in Party Pack 8? That’s right, five games! In terms of returning favourites, there’s Drawful: Animate, a new spin on the beloved Pictionary-style game that now allows 3-10 players to create animated gifs, which you can see in the trailer above.
Job Job tasks 3-10 players with answering job interview questions by assembling responses using the likely stupid answers from other players.
The Poll Mine is the first competitive team game in the series. 2–10 players are trapped in a mine, and the only way out is to correctly rank your group’s survey responses.
The Wheel of Enormous Proportions is a trivia game in which four to eight players answer questions posed by the titular giant wheel.
Finally, there’s Jackbox’s take on a deception-style game, Weapons Drawn. You must solve murders carried out by your friends while also drawing weapons to carry out your own assassinations. It can accommodate 4 to 8 players.
According to the series, you can play Jackbox Party Pack 8 by going to Jackbox.tv in your browser instead of using your phone. In addition to your friends, up to 10,000 spectators can watch and participate in certain games to influence the results.
