Exciting news! Yesterday we passed 150,000 followers on our official ROBLOX Twitch channel. Whenever we hit a large milestone like this, we like to celebrate by holding a special livestreaming event. It also means we give away prizes to you guys, our loyal ROBLOX fans who tune in every week. This time around we wanted to do something really special, so we’ve got two different events happening this week and next on our channel.
We’ve got exciting news, ROBLOXians! We are delighted to announce that ROBLOX is once again ushering in a new era of creativity and world-building for over 400,000 creators and builders alike. As many of you may have seen or heard, we are now allowing everyone – yes, EVERYONE – to import their own meshes into their games! Our latest update to ROBLOX Studio provides a greater level of freedom than ever before, opening up the door for a wider range of incredibly detailed imaginative experiences. Let’s jump in and discuss how the world of ROBLOX will evolve with Custom Meshes!
Pack your bags, because it’s time to head to camp – ROBLOX Summer Camp, that is! This summer, we’re joined by the Big Friendly Giant (or The BFG, for short)! The BFG has scattered his mystical dream jars across the world of ROBLOX, and we’re enlisting your help to join the hunt for these special items. Find them, and you’ll be rewarded with some awesome items that will keep you geared up for any summer occasion! While you’re at it, compete with your friends in our sun-sational summer camp obstacle course and prove your finesse for even more gloriumptious prizes!
Search high and low for your friends in Blox Hunt! Look carefully…they might be hiding in one of the dream jars! If you find one of your friends hiding in the dream jar, you’ll be rewarded handsomely with a special prize!
Sprint, jump, and climb in the grueling obstacle course in Epic Minigames! Navigate your way across dream jars, dream horns, campfires, and tents, and if you endure, you will receive an award for your efforts!
Scurry your way on over to the ROBLOX Summer Camp to go spelunking inside a dark and perplexing cave. Seek The BFG’s hidden dream jars for another fantastical prize that will make you the envy of all your friends! If you find the right dream jar, you will win another amazing prize!
Check out the games here, and be sure to catch The BFG when it stomps into theaters on July 1, 2016!
Have a happy summer adventure, ROBLOXians!
VIP Servers have been an increasingly popular addition over the years. Since their launch in late 2014, more and more ROBLOX players have embraced this feature so they could easily connect and play with friends privately. Over the past several weeks, our engineering team has been hard at work implementing the next exciting incremental update for VIP Servers. Today, we’re answering the call for one of our most popular requests to date. All group-owned games on ROBLOX can finally support VIP Servers…starting now!
Someone told me long ago there’s a calm before the storm. I know; the evil Galra been comin’ for some time. But thankfully, Voltron, the Universe’s most powerful force for good, has arrived and now you can team up with friends to aid Voltron in bringing peace and justice to the universe. I don’t know why nobody told you how to unfold your lion robot. But it’s okay – because you can learn how in the new Custom Game showcasing Voltron!
- Begin your journey by exploring galaxies in search of the five Lion Ships that comprise the Universe’s greatest protector hidden throughout space
- Work with friends to form Voltron from the discovered Lions and defend the universe with a blazing sword and energy shield
- Travel through space with your team and liberate planets from the bonds of the nefarious Galra Empire
Oh, did we forget to mention that there will also be some awesome prizes to win too? Because there will be.
And be sure to check out all the episodes of DreamWorks Voltron: Legendary Defender now streaming on Netflix.
The ROBLOX animation system has recently received yet another powerful update. I am pleased to announce that five easing styles have been enabled for all developers on PC and Mac, providing animations with smoother transitions, more organic movements, and greater performance. Now it’s easier than ever to bring your characters to life!
