Virtual birthday parties are an exciting way to get everyone together even when far apart. Keep in mind, since everyone is playing at home, they must have their own equipment; such as gaming systems, games, and required online subscriptions.
The great news is many of the most popular games found inside our GameTruck live birthday parties are available to play cross platform as well (across different gaming systems). But why stop there, your virtual party isn’t just for traditional consoles, play your favorite mobile games with friends, or even browser-based party games for a family game night!
Your GameCoach supervises the virtual video game party so you can experience the fun with little to no worry about everything working correctly. Your virtual video game birthday party with GameTruck will be a low-stress success.
We make it easy for you and your guests to go online and experience the ultimate video game birthday party!

In addition, while your party will have chat accessible for guests to communicate with one another, having access to a microphone or headset will enhance the experience of playing with your friends by allowing voice chat between you and your party members.
Do I need the same device, console or system to play with my friends?
It is recommended to have platforms in common with your friends, however, many major titles now also offer cross-platform play. It is recommended that you discuss this topic with your friends prior to the party so everyone knows what you want to play and can be ready to make the most of your time and get right into the action!
Will online play require any subscriptions?
Depending on the console and platform you’re playing from, some online content may require additional purchases to play or utilize specific services. This varies based on the title and platform but if your child already plays the game, it’s likely they already have everything required to play it.
