In December last year, Epic made, for the lack of a better term, an epic promise to PC gamers. PC gamers using the Epic Games Store would get one free game every two weeks for the whole of 2019 and we all simply love free stuff. So far, Epic has delivered the awesome Subnautica, Super Meat Boy and most recently, the brilliant What Remains of Edith Finch. Now, Epic has revealed the next free game that will arrive on 24 January 2019.
The next free game that PC gamers can take advantage of on the Epic Games Store will be Jackbox Party Pack. Although it doesn’t have the critical acclaim as the previous three games, it might be something that few gamers have tried and many would find surprisingly fun to play.
So what’s this Jackbox Party Pack? Well, it’s a collection of same-room multiplayer party games that you and your friends can enjoy. The collection includes:
- You Don’t Know Jack
- Word Spud
- Lie Swatter
These games use your phones and tablets as controllers so everyone can join in on the fun and it is definitely something to try out when you have a few friends over and get bored.
The developers explain that:
Players play using their phones, tablets, or even computers as controllers – making it the perfect easy-in entertainment piece for your next game night or party. No big mess of controllers needed! Once a game is started from the in-pack menu, players simply connect to the “jackbox.tv” web address on their device and then enter the on-screen room code to enter a game.
I, for one, haven’t played this before but since it will be the next free game on the Epic Games Store, there’s no reason not to try it out. The free offer will be available from 24 January until 7 February 2019. If you do take advantage of this freebie in time, Jackbox Party Pack will be yours to keep and play at your leisure.
