The user-generated online gaming hub known as ROBLOX
is getting some new content this month. As the game continues to grow through the community creating different games, developer Roblox Corporation has been adding some of those games to the Xbox One.
This month, fans will be able to play four new titles, some of which are well known ROBLOX
games, and others which are brand new. The featured games are: Miners Haven 2, Ripull Minigames, Mini Golf and Blox Hunt. Each game is detailed more below.
Miners Haven 2: First up is Miners Haven 2 – and its mineral veins have grown from the PC and found fresh ground on the Xbox One landscape. Miners Haven 2 puts players in the shoes of an up-and-coming miner; buy conveyor belts, place your mining equipment, and build up the best mining operation you can, all while making that sweet, sweet metal money.
Ripull Minigames: Next, we have Ripull Minigames: A game of more games, Ripull Minigames is a cavalcade of fun (and hilarious) minigames that pit players against each other in round after round of crazy madness. Some such games include classic dodgeball, whack-a-mole, laser tag, and pumpkin smashing, just to name a few! Every win nabs you credits to spend on crazy gear for your Robloxian – or to buy a cool pet to join you on your raucous rumpus.
Mini Golf: There’s nothing quite like a relaxing day at the links… unless, of course, your friends crashed your game and turned it into an all-out mini golf riot! Mini Golf puts a new twist on competitive multiplayer by making all players try their luck at the same time; the game is an indirect multiplayer game where all players can see what the others are doing, without direct interaction. Players move from hole to hole together in real-time, playing each round together – and with over 90 holes, Mini Golf will keep you putting to your heart’s content.
Blox Hunt: Finding friends on Roblox is easy, but finding them in Blox Hunt is NOT! A two-team twist on hide-and-seek, Blox Hunt allows the Hiders to hide in plain sight by actually becoming objects in the world. Why hide behind a rock when you can be the rock? Beware, though: The Seekers have a mighty weapon in their “Zap” ability, which allows them to take the less-inventive Hiders down. This game promises hours of fun for groups and friends, and includes many customization options for players who don’t just like to hide, but also be seen, in their sweet outfits between rounds.
Roblox Corporation also put together a quick trailer showing off some of these new game modes as well as some previously released game modes to give players a glimpse into what ROBLOX
is all about:
There is no word on when exactly these new game modes will be put into the game, with the only time frame being "this month" however, if you haven't already done so, ROBLOX
can be downloaded from the Xbox One store for free.
