Developer Recreate Games has announced a September release date for wacky competitive brawler Party Animals, which will also join Xbox Game Pass on day one.It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Party Animals, but Recreate Games has now confirmed that the physics-based multiplayer brawler releases on September 20 for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Xbox Game Pass. Party Animals was due to join Xbox Game Pass in 2022, but the game was delayed several times. Apologizing for the delays, Recreate Games CEO Zixiong Luo said, “This is our first time developing a game, and we underestimated the time it would take to fix the bugs. Additionally, some necessary approval processes took longer than we planned. We are just as eager as fans to see Party Animals launch, and we want to ensure it’s as polished and bug-free as possible first.”Party Animals looks very similar to Gang Beasts with its physics-driven character movements and gameplay that revolves around throwing, punching, and wrestling your pals out of a stage to eliminate them. According to Recreate Games, Party Animals features numerous local and online multiplayer modes, including free-for-all skirmishes and objective-based gameplay, a diverse cast of cute and cuddly animals, over 100 cosmetic items to collect, and crossplay between Xbox consoles and PC.Party Animals launches for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC in September.
