Multiplayer beat 'em up 'Gang Beasts' launches on Xbox One soon

Updated January 8, 2019: Gang Beasts has been delayed and now it's unclear when it's coming to Xbox One.

Party games remain popular on Xbox One despite the fact that the majority of gamers prefer "AAA" experiences like Call of Duty. Unfortunately, there aren't that many experiences to choose from on the Xbox Store, so whenever a new release comes along, it garners interest from many individuals.

Today, Double Fine Presents and Boneleaf announced that its party game, Gang Beasts, is coming to Xbox One on January 23, 2019. Gang Beasts is a strange experience which features surly gelatinous characters, brutal fight sequences, and absurdly hazardous environments. The title is already available on PlayStation 4, Windows, Mac, Linux, and the Oculus Rift headset. It's great to see that this title is making its way to Microsoft's machine very soon. It's unclear why it took this long to begin with.

To mark the Xbox One release announcement, the developer said, "It's almost the new year and all you Xbox One players better get ready to ruuuumble because... multiplayer beat 'em up game Gang Beasts will be launching for Xbox One on January 23. As with all the other platforms, Gang Beasts will be selling for $19.99 but fans can preorder the game starting January 9 to receive a 20 percent discount. PC and PlayStation 4 versions will also receive updates to enhance gameplay next month."

I personally can't wait to play Gang Beasts on Xbox One! I've heard so much about it. What about you? Do you like to play party games on Xbox One when friends visit?
