It’s that time of year again and Jackbox Games is back with the Jackbox Party Pack 3, featuring five brand new party games. Like the first two versions of the game, Jackbox Party Pack 3 lets anyone join in on the fun using their phones or tablets as controllers — and in some games up to 10,000 spectators can participate and affect the outcome of the game.
The Jackbox Party Pack 3 features four totally original titles: Trivia Murder Party challenges up to eight contestants to test their knowledge while being held captive by a hilariously unstable serial killer; Guesspionage is a game of percentages that asks up to eight players to guess the public’s answers to thought-provoking questions; Tee K.O. combines your artistic side with witty wordplay by turning drawings and slogans from up to eight players into hysterical T-shirts; and Fakin’ It tasks up to six players with secret, ridiculous instructions, with the exception of one clueless player who must lie and cheat to avoid being discovered as “The Faker.”
The pack’s fifth title is the exciting return of a party game favorite. Quiplash 2 is a bigger, better version of the original, with more say-anything prompts and a new final round, The Last Lash. And for the first time, Quiplash 2 allows users to write their own custom prompts, making it infinitely replayable.
The Jackbox Party Pack 3 also includes improved audience and streaming features. VIP status within games allows censoring of unruly players or audience members, keeping games troll-free. And for family game nights, mature content can be eliminated in Guesspionage, Fakin’ It and Quiplash 2 with the Family Friendly Filter.
The Jackbox Party Pack 3 is available as a digital title for the PlayStation 4 (in North America), Windows and Mac via Steam, and Amazon Fire TV starting today. It will be available on the PlayStation 4 in Europe on Oct. 19, as well as worldwide on Xbox One through the Xbox Games Store on Oct. 21. All formats are priced at $24.99.
We’ll be taking the Xbox One version for a spin, so check back soon for our full review.
