Every iteration of the Jackbox Party Pack has been a hit, so it's not all that surprising that Jackbox Games will be bringing a fourth collection to gamers later this year.
They're not getting too clever with the naming scheme as, according to the official announcement from Jackbox Games, their fourth collection will be called The Jackbox Party Pack 4. But while the game's title may not be all that exciting, at least we know that its contents will make up for it. For starters, it's already been confirmed that Fibbage 3 will be included in the set.
For those of you unfamiliar with the Jackbox collections, they're essentially the perfect go-to games for when you've got a few friends over who want to play some games. If your pals are in the mood to shoot terrorists or race karts, however, you might want to look elsewhere. What Jackbox has to offer are clever multiplayer games that test your knowledge, ability to deceive your friends, puzzle-solving skills and the like. Games included in the collections have been well-known quantities like You Don't Know Jack and Fibbage, as well as lesser-known, but still super fun, offerings like Drawful and Trivia Murder Party. As an added bonus, these games can be played with just about any smartphone or tablet, so you won't have to worry about buying a bunch of extra controllers for your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.
According to the announcement, Jackbox Party Pack 4 will be launching on "major digital marketplaces" this fall, so we imagine the usual platforms are a pretty safe bet. Heck, we might even see a Switch announcement between now and then.
While there's no telling what other titles will be included in this newest collection, Fibbage 3 is certainly a great place to start.
It's also been confirmed that an interesting new mechanic will be plopped into the game, with 10 answers available for selection during multiple choice quizzes rather than the usual nine. The explanation comes directly from the game announcement.
That's because this time around, the audience gets to join the fun by voting on their own decoy lies, and guessing the truth along with the players. Now, fooling the audience can really boost your score, so make sure to get as many gullible people as possible to join!
While we're sure some new games will be in the mix, we're happy to see something like Fibbage make the cut, especially with some new twists on that familiar formula.
More games will be revealed in the coming months leading up to launch, so you'll want to stay tuned to the developer's blog and social media feeds.
