Before a holiday season that will surely call for family and friend gatherings, The Jackbox Party Pack 5 will finally be available for all on essentially every single current home platform. Containing five games that utilize mobile phones as controllers, the pack will release on PlayStation 4 a day earlier than on other platforms.

This fifth compilation from Jackbox Games will feature the return of trivia game You Don’t Know Jack, this new iteration named Full Stream. As we previously reported when the release window of October was announced, the pack will include games called Split the Room, Mad Verse City, Patently Stupid, and Zeeple Dome.

The PS4 release date for The Jackbox Party Pack 5 is Tuesday, October 16, while versions on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Mac and PC via Steam (for which there is a pre-order sale), Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Nvidia TV, Humble Bundle, and Fanatical will be out the following day. For Switch owners concerned about a potential paywall due to Nintendo Switch Online, the Jackbox games will not require the subscription to play.
