This latest Short Nite includes a variety of shorts that are comedic, rhythmic, and action-packed. Included in the schedule are two shorts from the full-of-action Gildedguy saga, including the world premiere of the next entry Gildedguy Gets Up! (featuring music by Emma Stevens).

The total runtime of the shorts is about 40 minutes, and the show will run non-stop for 48 hours. (So jump in whenever you want!) If you’re new to Party Royale, check out our guide for getting to the Big Screen.

Subtitles and Content Creation

For the shorts that contain dialogue, you’ll be able to watch them with subtitles in your preferred language. If you want to watch with subtitles, be sure to enable subtitles in the Audio Settings.

And as a heads-up for Content Creators, just like with any theater, there’s no recording of these shorts during the event. Instead, invite your fans to watch in-game live! Any streams or VODs of these films (whether from Party Royale or via Picture-in-Picture) will be removed per content protection rules.

We hope you enjoy these shorts playing at the Big Screen. To schedule this Party Royale event on your calendar, be sure to head to We’ll see you at the second Short Nite! 🍿
