The rest of this year is gonna be BIG for House Party, doods and lady-doods!
Since there’s so much coming soon to the party, we wanted to share our current development timeline with you, so you know exactly what’s on the way, and when!
Keep in mind this is an estimated timeline and some plans may change – especially as we begin working more on Office Party – but hopefully this will give you a good general idea of what we’re currently hoping to bring to the game next.
So, check out the roadmap above (and read more details below) to get a better idea on timelines for all the rad stuff that we hope to add to House Party throughout the rest of 2023!
Been waiting for the party to get spooky again?
The House Party – Halloween Holiday Pack will be the first of our seasonal holiday packs to release, and we should have it ready to play within the next few weeks! 👻
While it’s taken a bit longer than expected to completely rebuild the event and get the DLC toggle feature ready (you can read more about that here), everything is looking good for the Halloween vibes to return to the party very soon! 🎃
Also, thanks to your patience, we’ve been able to work on preparing the holiday packs without sacrificing development time on the other big and exciting things coming to House Party later this year! Awesome news and cheers to you, brahs!
Following hot on the heels of the permanent return of the Halloween content will be the House Party – Winter Holiday Pack! 🎅Once we have the toggle feature done for Halloween, we should be able to get everything quickly situated for the next seasonal DLC – so, expect to see this pack ready sometime next month. When it releases, you’ll be able to get into the winter holiday spirit all year long! ⛄
Please keep in mind that neither of these holidays will have any additional content compared to what was in their original 2022 events, but we have plans to add plenty more to them in future updates!
Now, here’s the big news: the awesome murder mystery DLC featuring the sexy, hilarious, and amazing cosplay heartthrob Liz Catz will be coming this Summer! But…when exactly? A lot of you’ve been asking, so here’s an update on the release window for the mysterious new expansion. 🕵️We are hoping to have the DLC ready for you to play as soon as late May or June this year! We’ll keep you all updated on the specific timing as we get closer to the release, and we’ll provide you with an official launch date as soon as we can. 🤘
In the meantime, we hope you’re stoked to solve this exciting whodunnit (and maybe get dirty along the way, too). If you want to get a preview of what’s coming ahead of time, you can always check out this blog to learn how to get access to early Alpha and Beta builds.
Wait…there are new features coming to the original House Party experience? Say what?!While we haven’t shared too much about this yet, we’re planning to release some awesome new free feature updates for the base game – implementing some of the feedback we got from you brahs in our Future Of House Party Feedback Form! 🎉
This won’t be any sort of big new character, story, or content patch, but we think you’re going to love what we’re planning on adding. More details coming soon! 👀
Around the end of the year, we also plan to release a sweet new DLC set entirely in the House Party universe! It’ll include a cool new side story (separate from the original story), two brand new characters to interact with (one female, one male), and a couple new clothing items! 🔥The theme of this DLC and much of the story inspiration will be drawn directly from your responses in the Future of House Party Feedback Form! We’re still in the conceptualization phase on this, so this means that we’ll announce what the winning clothing and story themes are for the DLC as soon as we can! 🍻
What’s even cooler is that this DLC will be enriched by the free House Party base game feature updates that we release just before the expansion drops. If you’ve been wanting more of that original House Party goodness, this one’s for you!
As shown in the timeline, the estimates for when some of these things will launch depends a lot on Office Party (House Party’s sequel).
While near-future releases are less likely to change, the stuff shown further out on our timeline could be shifted, delayed, or removed for the sake of working more on Office Party sooner. That’s why we avoided putting exact dates on the image itself.
Where are we at with developing Office Party? Right now, we’re still planning, concepting, and laying out the early framework for it in the background, though it will be a while before we share anything new. But Office Party is coming, brahs, and it’s gonna be awesome! 😱
And what about VR? Although we don’t have any new updates for you right now, we still plan to add it in the future! Anyway, that’s all for now, partiers. We hope you’re excited to see what the rest of 2023 has in store for House Party! 🙌
