THQ have confirmed that they are planning to release four downloadable packs for their upcoming game You Don't Know Jack
. Each downloadable pack will contain ten extra episodes for the game. There will be 73 episodes on the disc.
The game is resurrecting the long-running series of video games that first appeared in 1995. The quiz is presented like a television show, where "pop and high culture collide" with questions about "what’s newsworthy, relevant and interesting in today’s world". The games even inspired a short-lived TV show in 2001, but the quiz show only lasted for six episodes before being replaced by The Wayne Brady Show.
As well as the game modes that were announced
in October, THQ have confirmed that the Shorties mode will also be returning, as will the chance to "Screw Your Opponent" in multiplayer modes. The Fauxmercials will also be present in between games.
Here are some screenshots that were released earlier this month:You Don't Know Jack
will be released in N America on February 8th, 2011.
