Party Animals offers delightful gameplay
The game is a multiplayer brawler that makes fun use of the laws of physics. It is strongly reminiscent of popular hits like Human: Fall Flat in its mechanics and also clumsiness. One difference is that in Party Animals, instead of humanoid characters, you slip into the role of little innocent animals like bunnies, puppies, or little chicks, which can’t be surpassed in cuteness. In addition to your fists (or paws), you also have a selection of weapons and items at your disposal to defeat your opposing cuddly buddies (no, no, it’s just a game).
It’s this contrast of childlike cuteness and adult combat that makes the game so appealing to fans, which is why it’s one of the most wished games on Steam for a reason. And the developers think that it’s the perfect game for a weekend with friends. Just check out the cuteness for yourself in this new gameplay trailer:
When is the Party Animals release date?
The Chinese developer Recreate Games first announced the game in 2020 and had already gathered a large fanbase thanks to many trailers and demos. Due to the great reception, the team has thrown themselves even more into the development of Party Animals. This has resulted in the release date planned for 2022 being cancelled and postponed to early 2023. Unfortunately, at this point there is no further indication as to when exactly the game will be released. But as soon as we know more, we will update you.
Is the game crossplay / multi-platform compatible?
The Party Animals game includes both local and online multiplayer with different game modes. For example, you can compete against your friends in PvP mode or play together with them in various ways in Co-op. Thus the game offers gameplay for every taste.
The beat ’em up title will be initially released for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. But a later release for PS4/PS5 and also Nintendo Switch is not off the table. Since the gameplay fits very well with the target group of Sony and Nintendo, this assumption seems quite natural. The combined PC and Xbox announcement also feels like a hint at crossplay/platform functionality between the systems. Since the two ecosystems are similar, the development effort to that end is probably the lowest initially. However, there is no official statement from the developers about it yet. We will keep you up to date on this.
Even more interesting games await you this year
2023 has a few gems in store for us. You can increase your anticipation even more with great upcoming titles like Stalker 2, Dead Island 2, Sons of the Forest, The Day Before, or Blood Bowl 3.
