The Jackbox Party Pack 9 Gets a Release Date!The latest edition of the popular party game series will be Switch-bound within the month
It’s true that The Jackbox Party Pack 9 is so fun that we almost decided to keep it for ourselves. Then, the Video Game Illuminati descended and told us that our selfishness would be punished with ten years of cursed parties if we didn’t see the error of our ways. *shudders*
In a totally unselfish attempt to ensure your hangouts are engaging and fun through the holiday season, we’ve decided that The Jackbox Party Pack 9 is coming to major digital platforms on Thursday, October 20th! We’re on cloud nine to have successfully finished what might be our best pack yet.
“Why did you make us wait so long to share a date?”
It’s true that we usually release our new title around this time of year! In the time leading up to launch, we have to submit our game to all of the many platforms we’re available on. Until we pass the submission process, we’re unable to select a release date. Because we have a speedy annual release cycle, the time between submission and release is super quick! As soon as we can, we pick a date and share it with the world!
“What can I expect from The Jackbox Party Pack 9?”
Settings and features we’ve added in recent packs will still be available in The Jackbox Party Pack 9. Earlier this summer, we also announced that you’ll be able to kick players from the lobby and during the game as well. This helps keep livestreams or games being played at public events as safe as possible. This Party Pack will also allow you to connect to games via QR codes that appear on the screen in the lobby before you start a round.
There are five games in The Jackbox Party Pack 9: the trivia bluff-off Fibbage 4, the team sorting test Quixort, the magical joke auction Junktopia, the silly guessfest Nonsensory and the salacious reality TV game Roomerang. You can watch early play-throughs of each game in the pack on our YouTube channel here.
