Jackbox Games is continuing its series of party game collections this fall with The Jackbox Party Pack 4, the studio announced yesterday.

The package will be headlined by Fibbage 3, the latest iteration of Jackbox’s acclaimed fool-your-friends game. The sub-series began in 2014 with Fibbage, and the studio followed it up later that year with the original Jackbox Party Pack, which included an expanded version of the game called Fibbage XL. In 2015, The Jackbox Party Pack 2 featured Fibbage 2, which allowed audience members to play along for the first time.

One of the changes in Fibbage 3 is that the audience will now be able to vote on decoy lies and guess the true answer — similarly to the players themselves. “Fooling the audience can really boost your score, so make sure to get as many gullible people as possible to join,” Jackbox said in its announcement.

Each of the Jackbox Party Pack titles contains five different games, but Fibbage 3 is the only one that the studio announced yesterday. Jackbox also didn’t specify the platforms on which The Jackbox Party Pack 4 will be released, saying only that the game is “coming to major digital marketplaces.” The Jackbox Party Pack 3 debuted last fall on Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV, Mac, Nvidia Shield, PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One, and was released on Nintendo Switch earlier this month.

Update (Aug. 17): The Jackbox Party Pack 4 is planned for release this fall on “the same platforms” on which The Jackbox Party Pack 3 is available, a Jackbox Games representative told Polygon today. At this time, Jackbox is confirming versions on Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV (4th gen only), Mac (Mac App Store and Steam), Nintendo Switch, Nvidia Shield, PlayStation 4, Windows PC (Steam) and Xbox One.

Since announcing The Jackbox Party Pack 4 in April with Fibbage 3, Jackbox Games has revealed two of the other four titles in the package. Survive the Internet is a comedy game in which players come up with answers to prompts, and then other players create out-of-context jokes with those responses. Monster Seeking Monster is a dating game in which all of the participants are trying to set up dates with each other — and each player is a monster with a hidden power. If you want to see Monster Seeking Monster in action, Jackbox will be showing off the game on its Twitch channel today at 4 p.m. EDT.

Fibbage 3 will be the only sequel in The Jackbox Party Pack 4; the other four games are all original titles.
