Right now, it looks like there is no official offline mode, especially when checking into reviews. Countless players have mentioned that there are queue times when trying to play locally, causing more arguments between friends than there are on the battlefield. While the game is gorgeous and looks adorable, having to wait over 10 minutes to play an “offline” local game sounds miserable.

In my testing, however, I was able to launch into a multiplayer game with myself and my wife quickly without needing to wait in the queue, as described above. However, it was noticed that even offline multiplayer does need to start an online queue up, which is rather unfortunate. Hopefully, the developers take quick action to help keep this game afloat.

Why Does Party Animals Have Mostly Negative Reviews on Steam?

If you take a second to browse through the Party Animals Steam Page, you may notice that it’s currently sitting at a “Mostly Negative” at the moment. This seems to be also due to the inclusion of “online and offline” listed in the description, while this game still requires you to be online even to partake in offline battles. Even if you’re playing with friends, it seems that you’ll need to be online to play any mode offline at this point.
