Physics-based multiplayer brawler 'Party Animals' is available on Xbox and PC (Steam) today!

Party Animals is a physics-based multiplayer brawler that supports both local and online multiplayer modes. Fight with or against your friends in Party Animals! Choose your character from a diverse cast of adorable animals as you battle it out across multiple game modes to be the last one left standing in the ultimate competitive brawler. Paw up, grab a plunger, and get ready to party like an animal.

Expect lots of laughs as players attempt to toss, grapple, hit, and swing their pals around... or hilariously stumble face-first in the process. This highly-anticipated, ridiculously cute co-op brawler features seamless crossplay between platforms, so inviting everyone to the party is easier than ever!

The game provides a range of adorable animals, from puppies and kittens to bunnies and duckies, in the cutest cooperative brawler you’ve ever seen! The unique physics engine, developed in-house by Recreate Games, features completely physics-driven character movements, leading to unpredictable yet hilarious encounters as the cute critters wrestle, punch, throw, and grapple their way through various task-oriented or competitive games in online or offline modes.

Here’s a brief overview of the three game modes and all 20 maps!

Nine “Last Stand” Maps:

Default teams of two, can also be changed to free-for-all or teams of four, aim to be the last one standing in these brawl-focused matches.

  • Ichiban - Engage in a fight on a flat arena surrounded by a creeping green fog. As the battle progresses, this fog rises onto the stage and drains health from anyone within it.

  • Typhoon - Battle atop a nuclear submarine that periodically launches missiles, creating powerful shockwaves. Over time, the submarine begins to sink, necessitating a climb to higher ground for survival.

  • Broken Arrow - Struggle on a fighter jet that tilts and sways, with strong winds adding to the challenge. As time passes, the plane's surface becomes icy and slippery.

  • Winter Is Coming - Fight beside the bonfires of a snowy village. In the midst of a snowstorm, maintain proximity to the fire to prevent freezing. As time passes, the fires one by one die out.

  • Wind Tunnel - Battle within a wind tunnel where occasional gusts can blow players away. Players can raise three wind shields by pulling levers within the arena. However, these levers will gradually break with increased use.

  • Black Hole Lab - Fight within a lab where black holes are generated. During these events, hold onto heavy objects to resist being sucked in. Over time, the black holes' gravitational pull increases.

  • Beat-Up Bridge - Battle on a deteriorating suspension bridge. The ropes can be broken, and they will also gradually snap on their own over time.

  • Gator Valley - Fight on a decrepit log bridge beside a waterfall at the edge of a massive alligator-shaped valley. Occasional large waves can push the log bridge towards the cliff.

  • Ice Breaker - Engage in combat on a floating ice sheet. Falling into the water for too long turns players into an ice block. Over time, the ice sheet cracks into smaller pieces.

Nine “Team Score” Maps:

Teams of 4 players compete against each other to complete the objective.

  • Lollipop Factory - Fight in a candy factory, scrambling for large gummy bears and small candies. Win by bringing candies back to your base and prevent the opponent from scoring.

  • Fluffy Redemption - Two teams on parallel trains throw coal into their train's furnace to speed up, or pull the handbrake on the opponent's train to halt their progress.

  • Into the Game - Score points in an arcade by playing a coin-eating game or fight against opponents who are playing the game.

  • Safely Afloat - Compete for safes hung from floating balloons, score by pulling them back to your base.

  • Trebuchet - Score by launching bombs with a trebuchet to the opponent's side. Prevent scoring by throwing incoming bombs into the water, or create chaos by launching yourself to the opponent's side.

  • Buzz Ball - A basketball-like game where you score by throwing an electric ball into the opponent's goal. If too many players hold the ball, it explodes.

  • Beast Hockey - A hockey-like game where you use your fists and feet, and the puck is bigger than your character.

  • Beast Football - An American football-like game where hitting opponents is allowed.

  • Beast Soccer - A soccer-like game with an unusually large ball, and you're allowed to use your punches.

Two “Arcade” Maps:

Teams of 4 players each start with 10 lives. The team that manages to preserve at least one life while the opposing team loses all theirs is declared the winner.

  • Winter Cabin - Engage in a brawl within a winter milk bar. Drinking expired milk grants super strength but may cause dizziness. Staying outside too long will freeze you.

  • Final Destination - Fight in an abandoned subway station, but be careful not to fall onto the tracks.

Party Animals is available on Xbox One / Series X|S and PC today for $19.99 USD (Standard) or $29.99 USD (Deluxe), and is included in the Xbox GamePass subscription!
