Get your friends ready for an online game night next month, as the Jackbox Party Pack 7 release date has been set to Oct. 15. The next installation in the Jackbox Party Pack series will release on that date for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation, and Switch.
Jackbox Party Pack 7 will introduce five new mini-games to the series’ lineup.
Quiplash 3 has players respond to ridiculous prompts, in an all out battle for their friends’ votes using wit, humor, and charm. The original Quiplash released as a standalone game in 2015, with Quiplash 2 releasing as a part of the Jackbox Party Pack 3 in 2016.
The Devils and the Details isn’t a sequel, but a brand new idea from Jackbox Games. This mode has players working together as a family of devils trying to live a simple suburban life. Working together has its own rewards, but players can players who go it alone and betray their family members can come out on top. Be sure to check out the introduction video for this new mini-game.
It wouldn’t be a new Jackbox Party Pack without a drawing game, and Champ’d Up fills that role in this release. Players draw characters which will duke it out to win quirky titles.
Talking Points is the fourth mini-game in Jackbox Party Pack 7. Talking Points places a player in charge of presenting a series of slides to the rest of the players, but of course the presenter has no idea what those slides will be ahead of time. The announcement video of this new mini-game cleverly shows how this will work.
The final mini-game releasing with Jackbox Party Pack 7 is Blather ‘Round, a pop culture guessing game. One player will attempt to describe a secret prompt using a limited selection of words, while the other players guess what the prompt is before time is up.
Just like in previous Jackbox Party Pack games, players will be able to join in on the fun using nothing but a smartphone, tablet, computer as a controller, making it a great game for parties.
