Fall: that magical season of wearing scarves, watching scary movies, and convincing yourself that you enjoy paying money to pick apples. Well add another thing to look forward to this autumn: the all-new, pumpkin-flavored Jackbox Party Pack 3! Available October 18 on PS4.
We here at Jackbox Games are extremely proud of this latest pack. We think our third installment is easily our strongest yet — which, let’s face it, doesn’t always happen in a franchise. (We’re looking at you, The Odyssey.)
We’re especially excited that Trivia Murder Party, one of the five games in Pack 3, is here in time for your Halloween parties. It’s more than just your typical trivia game show hosted by a deranged serial killer. Just like a great scary movie, it mixes horror and comedy to create a fun and suspenseful game that will hold your attention captive until the very last question. As much fun as it is to fondle grapes and pretend they’re eyeballs, we think Trivia Murder Party is going to be a much more exciting way to spend an hour or five at your Halloween party.
Seriously, we put so much love and time into it that it could easily be a stand-alone title, but it’s just one fifth of this pack! You know how you come up with your best ideas in the shower? Well let’s just say our team had a lot of productive showers this past year. Perhaps we should rephrase that, but we won’t.
Making a much-anticipated return to Jackbox Party Pack 3 is Quiplash 2, a new-and-improved sequel to the beloved franchise. In addition to an all-new final round, you now have the ability to create custom prompts and censor audience/player answers (because apparently people on the internet can say terrible things — who knew?).
We could’ve easily just phoned it in after these two wildly fun games, but we’re insane workaholics. And while it was a massive strain on each and every one of our relationships, you lucky gamers get to enjoy the fruit of our labors. There’s Guesspionage, the survey game that shows you just how weird your fellow human can be; Tee K.O., the t-shirt battle game where your hilarious creations do battle; and Fakin’ It, in which you can accuse friends and loved ones of being deceptive cheaters unworthy of your trust.
Each game is wildly different but equally fun. We could go on and on about each one of these games but then we’d sound like one of those parents who brags about how wonderful all their children are. And that would be almost as annoying as going apple picking. Almost.
So please check out what we consider to be our strongest and most balanced Party Pack to date. We busted our tails off to get them to you before Halloween. It’s only $24.99, so you’ll still have room in your budget to dress up as a sexy Jackbox head!
