There are times when all you need to do is put down the first person shooters, walk away from the huge open worlds and jump out of the fastest racing cars, in order to grab a laugh or two. That is where the Jackbox Party Pack comes in… in particular the Jackbox Party Pack 4.
Available now for £19.99 on Xbox One, the Jackbox Party Pack 4 continues the fun and enjoyment found in the first, second and third packs, as it delivers no less than five (and a half) games for your enjoyment. If you’re running other formats, then you would probably have seen the pack arrive already. In fact, the release schedule was as follows:
- October 17: PlayStation®4 via the PlayStation®Store
- October 18: Apple TV (4th Generation only)
- October 19: Nintendo Switch™ via the Nintendo eShop, Windows PC and Mac via Steam, the Humble Store and Bundle Stars, as well as the Mac App Store, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV and Nvidia Shield
- October 20: Xbox One through the Xbox Games Store
Fibbage kicks things off and will suit those who have between two and eight players available to answer questions, whilst the Fibbage: Enough About You game will let you in on some weird facts about your mates. Survive the Internet works for 3-8 players as you twist comments in hilarious ways, whilst the 3-7 player date-a-thon, Monster Seeking Monster just seems a bit, um, strange.
Bracketerring meanwhile will cater for up to 16 players as you all place bets on arguments, whilst Civic Doodle (3-8 players) will bring out the town planners in you.
The great thing about The Jackbox Party Pack 4 is that you don’t need a ton of spare controller sitting around the place. Just grab your phone, tablet or computer and enjoy the barrel load of laughs it will bring.
We’ll have a full review for you soon, but should you be in need of a new party game, perhaps thinking ahead to those Christmas and New Year gatherings, then the Microsoft Store is awaiting your cash.
