Jackbox Games, creators of, well, the Jackbox games, have announced the release date for The Jackbox Party Pack 5. The latest in the popular series of games you can play with a group of friends without using controllers drops on a wide variety of platforms, including the PlayStation 4, on October 16, 2018.

Here’s an official list of games and descriptions provided for each per the Jackbox Games website:

You Don’t Know Jack

The pop-culture trivia mash-up YOU DON’T KNOW JACK: Full Stream (1-8 players). The classic returns, full of wild new surprises.

Split the Room

The what-if game Split the Room (3-8 Players). Create strange and divisive hypothetical situations.

Mad Verse City

The lyric-writing game Mad Verse City (3-8 players). Channel your inner MC as a rap battling robot.

Patently Stupid

The competitive drawing game Patently Stupid (3-8 players). Create odd inventions to solve bizarre problems.

Zeeple Dome

The deadliest game show in the Crab Nebula, Zeeple Dome (1-6 players)! Fling yourself at bloodthirsty aliens to win millions of Zubabucks!

In The Jackbox Party Pack series, players can access the game, on consoles, with just one controller used to navigate to the games, and everything else is done through an internet browser via mobile devices or computers. Later entries in the series also introduced the ability for audiences watching through livestreams to interact as well. If that sounds familiar, Sony has a similar line of games in the PlayLink series.
