When it’s time to party we will party hard – and very soon you’ll be able to party like never before on Xbox One.
Available as a digital pre-order, Party Hard sees you playing as someone who likes to party. I mean REALLY likes to party. Unfortunately it seems like their idea of fun is ridding the world of those who like loud music and a good time. It will therefore be up to you to blend in with the gathering and silently pick off unsuspecting victims one by one – you know, that a real party pooper!
It all seems like a rather unique prospect and you’ll be able to try it for free, or play the full game when it releases on 26th April 2016. Before that though, you can get your pre-order, and that all important pre-download in right now. You’ll need to pay £9.35 (if you have an Xbox Live Gold sub), which is a small saving over the usual £10.39 price point, but at least you won’t have to worry about those download limits or the like come release day.
In Party Hard, you play as someone who is really tired of the neighbors having loud parties. Instead of calling the police, you decide it’s a better idea to kill everyone – using your faithful knife and the environment. The tactical strategy follows a series of killings at parties through-ought the USA. The developers used to work mostly on casual, family-friendly games – until they participated in a game jam, creating the first prototype for Party Hard. TinyBuild backed up the original developers – Pinokl Games – to create a full version that’s now on Xbox One! Party Hard has semi-procedural environments and focus on unique ways of killing people. In the greatest traditions of sneaking games, your main goal is not to get caught, while silently picking off unsuspecting victims one by one. Dancing and blending in during a suspicious situation is key. – A (not)serious story that follows a series of murders through the USA. – 19 unique levels with random variations on each one. – Use traps, cause explosions, become a ninja. – Multiple unlock-able characters. – Special random events, like a bear coming in and killing everyone for you. – Trigger the DEA, SWAT cars, paramedics, firefighters to come in and ruin the party. 5 Playable Characters! – The guy who wants to get some sleep. – The ninja who is fast, stealthy, has a smoke bomb, but shouldn’t be seen. – The cop who can carry around bodies without suspicion, and frame other people. – The girl who can knock people out. – The butcher who has a chainsaw.
We will of course remind you when the game goes live fully.
