The new multiplayer party game OddBallers is coming out, January 26, on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The game is also backwards compatible on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.

In OddBallers, players can throw anything and everything at their opponents to win; the more absurd the object thrown, the better. There are a lot of different arenas, mini-games, and perilous environments such as electric fences, explosive gas tanks, and tennis ball launchers.

The game allows for a maximum of six players to compete locally on Nintendo Switch, while four players for other platforms. There’s also an online feature for those who want to test their skills with other players around the world.

In each match, players can customize accessibility features so they can adjust not just the length but even the difficulty. Players can also customize their avatar and celebratory dance moves. They can even choose what mini-game to play, thanks to the game’s custom mode.

Here's what players can expect from the game:
