Jackbox Games’s The Jackbox Party Pack will be the next free game offered by the Epic Games Store towards the end of January.
The Jackbox Party Pack is the first entry in the series of multiplayer party game packs with the latest game, The Jackbox Party Pack 5, launching on various platforms last October. It includes five games –You Don’t Know Jack 2015, Fibbage, Drawful, Lie Swatter, and Word Spud– all which require a smartphone, PC, or tablet to use as a controller.
According to the listing on the Epic Games Store, The Jackbox Party Pack will be available as a free download starting Thursday, Jan. 24 for two weeks until Feb. 7. The free offer is part of Epic Games’s promotion to give out a free PC game every two weeks in 2019, which began last December alongside the launch of the Epic Games Store digital marketplace.
The promotion has already cycled through two games, open-world survival-adventure Subnautica and platformer Super Meat Boy. The current free game is adventure title What Remains of Edith Finch, and is available to download today until Jan. 24.
Epic Games has been very active to promote its store and launcher with free games and exclusive titles from other publishers. Ubisoft’s The Division 2 is foregoing a Steam release to launch on the Epic Games Store, alongside the company’s Uplay launcher, and is planning “additional select titles” to also come to the platform.
