Source Technology has confirmed the release date for the highly anticipated co-op Brawler Party Animals, which is set to release for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via Steam on September 20. It will also be available on Xbox Game Pass from the launch date.
This engaging game allows players to choose from a diverse range of over 30 animals, including dogs, cats, alligators, otters, cows, dinosaurs, and tigers, and engage in various chaotic battles both online and offline.
Party Animals uses physics to create dynamic and chaotic gameplay. Players can select their preferred animals and challenge opponents in a multitude of sports competitions such as athletics, soccer, rugby, and a Gummy Bear tug-of-war contest. The combination of physics and playful struggles between characters results in a unique charm, providing an eccentric appeal through the slightly foolish poker faces of the battling creatures.
