main games





Minecraft is a 3D sandbox game originally created by Markus "Notch" Persson. It is maintained by Mojang Studios witch is now part of Microsoft.

From its creation, Minecraft was developed almost exclusively by Notch until Jens "Jeb" Bergsten started working with him and has since become head of its development. It features music by Daniel "C418" Rosenfeld and by Lena Raine and paintings by Kristoffer Zetterstrand. Initially released as what is now known as Minecraft Classic on May 17, 2009, the game was fully released on November 18, 2011. Since its release, Minecraft has expanded to mobile devices and consoles. On November 6, 2014, Minecraft and all of Mojang Studios' assets were acquired by Microsoft for US$2.5 billion.[5][6] Notch has since left Mojang and is no longer working on Minecraft.

Minecraft focuses on allowing the player to explore, interact with and modify a dynamically-generated map made of one-cubic-meter-sized blocks. In addition to blocks, the environment features plants, mobs and items. Some activities in the game include building, mining for ore, fighting hostile mobs and crafting new blocks and tools by gathering various resources found in the game. The game's open-ended model allows players to create structures, creations and artwork on various competitive or collaborative multiplayer servers or their single-player maps. Other features include Redstone circuits for logic computations and remote actions, minecarts and tracks, and a mysterious underworld called the Nether. A designated but completely optional goal of the game is to travel to a dimension called the End and defeat the Ender dragon.

Java Edition can be purchased from the Minecraft Official Site. Gift codes can be bought for others, for the same price as buying the game for oneself. The demo version can be played for free. Java Edition is not officially supported on Windows RT or Chrome OS.[7]

Bedrock Edition can be purchased on Google Play, the App Store (iOS & iPadOS), the Amazon Appstore, the Microsoft Store/Xbox app (Windows & Xbox One), the Nintendo eShop (Nintendo Switch), and the PlayStation Store (PlayStation 4).

Alternatively, Xbox Game Pass also give access Bedrock Edition on Xbox consoles, PC Game Pass give access to Java and Bedrock editions on Windows 10/11 PCs, and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate give access to Java and Bedrock editions on Windows 10/11 PCs and Bedrock Edition on Xbox consoles.

The PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita editions can not be purchased through a web browser. The Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 editions are no longer available for direct digital purchase as these versions are discontinued and have been replaced with Bedrock Edition.

New Nintendo 3DS Edition can be purchased on physical media (North America only) or on the Nintendo eShop. This version is discontinued.

Gameplay

Main article: Gameplay

A newly created Minecraft world.

Player

Main article: Player

One of the two default player characters, called Steve.

The player is the person that the user controls in the world. When the user starts a game, the player is put in a world, generated by a random or specified seed, with an empty inventory. If the bonus chest option is enabled, a chest filled with basic items generates near the player. The player has a health bar with 10 hearts and can be damaged by falls, suffocation, drowning, fire, lava, lightning, cacti, sweet berry bushes, magma blocks, falling into the Void, hitting another entity with thorns armor, splash potions, falling anvils and being hit by mobs and other players. Damage to health can be mitigated by armor or Resistance potion and health can be restored by eating food and drinking specific potions or if difficulty is set to Peaceful, health regenerates on its own. Hunger is also a factor if the difficulty is not set to Peaceful, depleting over time and even faster while sprinting, jumping or swimming. Food replenishes the hunger level; however, eating rotten flesh and raw chicken has a chance of giving the player a hunger effect. Depending on the difficulty level, starvation depletes a player's health and may even kill the player.

A player can change their skin on the profile page of Minecraft.net or in the Minecraft Launcher in Java Edition and in the pause or main menus on Bedrock Edition.

Blocks

Main article: Block

A building based on a Greek acropolis.

The world of Minecraft takes place within a three-dimensional grid of cubes, with each cube being occupied by a certain type of block, not all of which are necessarily cubic. There are different types of blocks; natural blocks such as grass, stone and ores that generate randomly within the world. There are also blocks that players can craft, such as a crafting table and a furnace. Resources can be extracted from blocks by hand or by using tools. Some of these resources are simply blocks in the player's inventory that can be placed elsewhere, while others are used as material to create other blocks or tools. Others yield no practical use whatsoever. Some blocks cannot be broken through normal survival means, e.g. bedrock, end portal frames, command blocks, nether and end portals, barriers and air.

Mining

Main article: Mining

Various ores (in proximity of lava) that can be mined with a pickaxe.

Mining is one of the main aspects of Minecraft and is done to extract ore and other materials mainly from below the surface of the map. These ores include coal, iron, gold, redstone, diamond, lapis lazuli, copper and emerald. Mining can involve digging a hole from the surface or going down through a cave. Mineshafts and ravines create extra areas that may contain resources, since they are usually rich in ores.

Crafting and smelting

Main articles: Crafting and Smelting

A crafting table is used to create most of the blocks and items in Minecraft.

Crafting allows players to create new tools and blocks using items from their inventory. Subsequent versions often contain crafting recipes for new blocks and items. A player can use the 2×2 grid in the inventory or the 3×3 grid provided by a crafting table to craft. Smelting requires a furnace in addition to fuel and processes blocks into a more useful form such as from raw iron into iron ingots, which can then be crafted into iron tools and iron armor.

Brewing and enchanting

Main articles: Brewing and Enchanting

An Enchantment Table with glyphs being absorbed into it.

Brewing creates potions from various ingredients and water using a brewing stand. They are stored in a glass bottle and then consumed by the player or thrown at other mobs to generate a certain effect based on the magical ingredients used to create the potion. Enchanting is also used to upgrade armor, tools or weapons with an enchanting table or anvil. More powerful enchantments can be accessed by gaining experience and placing bookshelves around the enchanting table.

Mobs

Main article: Mobs

A creeper in a forest. Creepers stalk the player and then explode once they get near.

Mobs (short for "mobiles") are the animals and other creatures that inhabit the map. Hostile mobs attack the player while passive mobs do not. Neutral mobs attack when provoked (not all neutral mobs are provoked the same way).

The Overworld contains many passive mobs that may be killed for food or bred with one another; these include:

  • Pigs: drop porkchops upon death and can be ridden using a saddle and holding a carrot on a stick.

  • Cows: drop beef upon death and can be milked using a bucket.

  • Sheep: drop mutton and 1 wool upon death and can be sheared to produce 1–3 wools.

  • Chickens: drop chicken and feathers upon death and lay eggs.

  • Horses: drop leather upon death and can be ridden using a saddle, traveling much faster than pigs.

  • Rabbits: drop rabbit meat, hide and its foot, a brewing item.

  • Bats: ambient mobs that fly around caves.

  • Fish: passive ambient mobs that drop diverse items such as food or bones.

Mobs that drop food drop the raw version of their food unless killed while on fire.

Common hostile mobs found throughout the Overworld include:

The Overworld also contains some rarer mobs that spawn only on occasion or in specific biomes, places or times:

Some are found exclusively in the Nether, including:

The End contains the ender dragon, which is the main boss mob in Minecraft and allows the player to exit back to the Overworld when it dies.

Withers are the second boss mob in Minecraft and are created by the player by placing wither skeleton skulls on top of soul sand in a specific pattern. When spawned, they shoot wither skulls at nearby non-undead mobs.

The Nether

Main article: The Nether

The Nether.

The Nether is a dimension in Minecraft accessible from the Overworld by a nether portal. It consists of five unique biomes, which are the nether wastes, the basalt deltas, the crimson and warped forests and the soul sand valleys. Each biome has unique generation and terrain. It is populated by zombified piglins, blazes, ghasts, wither skeletons, magma cubes, piglins and hoglins. Ores in the nether include nether quartz, nether gold and ancient debris. The Nether also has large oceans of lava that have striders walking on them.

The End

Main article: The End

The End.

The End is another dimension of the game where the player battles the ender dragon. The End is accessed by entering an end portal found in a stronghold. The End is composed of end stone and is inhabited by endermen. It also contains tall obsidian pillars on top of which are end crystals that heal the ender dragon. Once the ender dragon is slain, the exit portal is created in the center of the map and an end gateway portal is created near an edge of the map, which transports the player to the expansive outer end islands which are full of chorus fruit forests and end cities filled of chest loot and shulkers. The end gateway portal is only accessed by throwing an enderpearl in the portal. There are no ores in the end.

Multiplayer (Java)

Main articles: Server and Multiplayer

PvP (player vs player) on a multiplayer server.

Minecraft multiplayer servers have developed to include their own rules and customs, guided by their administrators and moderators. The term griefer, meaning a player who causes grief, is a typical term on the internet but has taken up its definition on Minecraft servers: a person who destroys or defiles other users' creations on servers.

Griefers are the reason many server administrators make rules, but this has been taken a step further with modifications to the Minecraft server and even plugin-based replacement servers such as Bukkit. Because of these plugin-based servers, new user-created features have shown up in Minecraft. This includes features like money, vehicles, protection, RPG elements and more. These features normally do not require modification to a user's client and can be accessed by using chat commands. With the default controls, the chat screen is brought up by pressing T.

One popular game on multiplayer servers is Spleef (a play on the word "grief"), a game where the player aims to make another player drop through the floor by destroying blocks beneath the opponent's feet. This is typically played in a designated area and is usually run automatically using server plugins.

Many popular multiplayer servers exist that may contain, PvP arenas, custom minigames or large Survival or Creative worlds.

Multiplayer (Bedrock)

Multiplayer in Bedrock Edition differs from multiplayer on the Java edition in that it is centered around a friend system. A player can add friends through the Friends tab in the menu or in the pause screen of a world. A player may invite friends to a world instead of having to pay for a server or realm. Minecraft has featured servers on Bedrock, which means that they are available when opening the game. There are seven featured servers: The Hive, CubeCraft, Mineplex, Lifeboat, Mineville, Galaxite, and Pixel Paradise.

Minecraft Realms

Main article: Realms

Minecraft Realms is an official subscription-based server hosting service that allows players to create and manage their own private Minecraft multiplayer worlds. Hosted by Mojang Studios, Realms provides an easy and fast way to create servers and allows the owner to manage them from inside the game, without prior knowledge of the concepts for hosting on the internet. However, Realms are not intended for large public servers, but for groups of friends or as a family server.[8] Private Realms servers are easy to set up and available 24/7 as long as the owner pays for it.

Gameplay

Standard Playlists for Battle Royale put the player in a match of 100 players, in an attempt to be the last one standing and gain a Victory Royale. Players can compete alone, or with a squad of 1, 2 or 3 other players to aid them in battle.

Standard modes of Battle Royale consist of 100 players dropping out of the to compete in Solo, or in a squad, to be the last one standing, gaining the Victory Royale.

Players jump out of the Battle Bus, and only start with a Glider and a Harvesting Tool. Once on the ground, players must scavenge buildings, their surrounding areas, and chests to find weapons and items for survival. Players will then have to survive amongst all other opponents to win the game. The Storm will eventually spawn, which acts like a barrier and forces players to move into the "Safe Zone." The Storm will damage you if you are in it, potentially eliminating the player, so it is important that they pay close attention to its movement.

Players can also gain Materials to build structures and block damage from opponents. Excelling in building and editing at fast speeds can result in victories in most scenarios.

Seasons

Main article: Seasons

Story

See also Lore (Save the World)

If you're out there, we need your help! The Storm came, and the monsters followed. They took everything: our towns, even our families. The few of us left are in serious danger... Now it's the time to fight back! All we need is a leader. And that's you. Sure it'll be dangerous. I mean, yeah, there's monsters (a lot of monsters!) but we've got massive forts, killer traps, and piles of loot. If we stick together, they don't stand a chance. This is our world, and it's time to take it back!

— Ray (Starting Cutscene/Introduction Trailer to Save the World.)


One day, 98% of Earth's human population suddenly disappeared, and the remaining humans found the skies covered in dense clouds, creating chaotic storms that dropped husks: humanoid zombie-like creatures that attacked the living. The survivors found ways to construct "storm shields", a field that cleared the storm clouds from immediately overhead and reduced the attacks from husks, and used these to set up survivor bases across the globe. The player is a Commander of one of these bases, charged with going out of the Storm Shield to find resources, survivors, and other allies to help expand their storm shield and find a way to return Earth to its normal state.

Gameplay

See also Fortnite controls

You and up to four players lead the world's remaining Heroes in a battle to save survivors and hold back the monster hordes.

In Save the World, the player takes on the role of a Hero, with the task of fighting against The Storm, rescuing Survivors, building structures, and upgrading and expanding a Storm Shield to protect the area. The tasks are straightforward as they mostly are made up of building around a structure and defending it. Although, multiple levels of progression are given for players to utilize in order to better reach their goal. Players can play the missions solo or join with up to 3 friends.

There is also a campaign to progress through. There are 3 different regions in the story.

Heroes

Main article: Heroes

There are currently four main Hero Classes in Save the World:

  • The Soldier, with a focus on ranged combat and the all around use of Guns and Grenades.

  • The Constructor, with a focus on building, defending structures, and crowd control for heavy situations.

  • The Ninja, with a focus on melee combat and fast movement.

  • The Outlander, with a focus on resource collection, scouting, and distraction/crowd control.

Each hero has their own abilities and hero perks, and each hero class have there own set of abilities. The player is able to take 6 of these heroes into battle having 1 commander which the player controls and determines the players abilities, and then 5 support heroes which grant bonuses as perks.

Each heroes perk has a requirement that is based off of the commanders abilities and class, if the commander is a different class or has a different ability then the support heroes perk supports then that support hero will do nothing. The player is also able to select a Team Perk which grants the player a boost to the player based on the support heroes that are being used, Team Perks have different requirements which can range from hero class, hero star/level, and hero rarity.

Weapons

Main article: Weaponry (Save the World)

Weapons are items in Save the World which serve as the main way to damage enemies and fall under two main categories of Ranged and Melee Weapons, and both of these categories have sub-categories which help define the type of weapon that is being used such as Assault Rifles and Hardware.

Weapons can be acquired in two different ways

  • Craft the item from a schematic:

    • The craft a weapon the player must already own the Weapons Schematic.

    • The resource cost depends on the items level, rarity, evolution, and weapon set. Higher rarity weapons will have access to higher evolutions.

      • Copper (Tier ★) is the first evolution.

      • Silver (Tier ★★) is the second evolution.

      • Malachite (Tier ★★★) is the third evolution.

      • Obsidian (Tier ★★★★) and Shadowshard (Tier ★★★★) are the fourth evolutions.

      • Brightcore (Tier ★★★★★) and Sunbeam (Tier ★★★★★) are the fifth and final evolutions.

Weapons will break after using them for a long time as they have limited durability. Weapons can be used until they break, or the player can recycle them from the players inventory to receive a very small amount of used crafting resources depending on the weapons current durability. In Ventures the players are able to fix their weapons durability by using creating materials like the ore/crystal that the weapon is made out of.

Traps

Main article: Traps (Save The World)

Traps are devices in Save the World which serve as a secondary way to damage enemies and fall under two main categories of Offensive and Utility Traps, and both of these categories have sub-categories which help to define the building piece that traps can be attached to such as walls and floors.

Traps and Trap Schematics are obtained in the same way as Weapons and Weapon Schematics, either through loot or by crafting them.

Defenders

Main article: Defender

Defenders are characters in Save the World which can be placed during Missions using "Defender Pads" and once placed and given the correct weapon and ammunition the Defender will attack nearby enemies. Each defender is able to hold a different type of weapon and ammunition, but isn't able to hold ones that don't fall under their type.

  • Defender Types

    • Assault Defenders

    • Shotgun Defenders

    • Pistol/Submachine Gun Defenders

    • Sniper Defenders

    • Melee Defenders

The player can only place down a set number of defenders ranging from 1 to 3, and the weapons that defenders use have to be granted by the players which allows for high level weapons to be used by defenders. If the defender has insufficient ammunition they will not be able to attack (this excludes melee defenders), but defenders are able to pick-up ammunition dropped from enemies.

Survivor Squads

Main article: Survivor Squads

Survivors are characters in Save the World which can be put into Survivor Squads to increase some of the players statistics, there are only two categories of survivors.

  • Survivors

  • Lead Survivors

    • Unique Leads

Survivors that have been slotted into a Survivor Squad (which unlock through the campaign) will increase a statistic of the players F.O.R.T. statistics, and will also increase the players Homebase Level allowing the player to access harder missions. The leader slot is a unique slot for lead survivors which will increase the players stats more then base survivors, lead survivors have a sub-variant called "Unique Leads" which are mythical survivors.

F.O.R.T. Stats

See: F.O.R.T.

F.O.R.T. is an acronym for the four types of statistics available to players, these four statistics will help the player advance through Save the World and can be increased through Survivor Squads and Research Points both can be found in the Command Tab. The F.O.R.T. is the collective bonuses of Research Points and Survivors that the player has placed into their Survivor Squads.

  • Fortitude: Increases health by 1% per point.

  • Offense: Increases ranged damage and melee damage by 1% per point.

  • Resistance: Increases shield and shield regeneration by 1% per point.

  • Tech: Increases trap damage, ability damage, gadget damage, and healing done by 1% per point.

Skills

Note: In Patch 6.30 The Skill Trees were removed due to the new Front-End Improvements Update. All players that got rewards from the Skill And Research Trees were given some free rewards. The Research Tab is still in game, but the Skill tree is now the Upgrade Tab. Additionally Leveling up still rewards skill points, but not every time. instead it gives random rewards and after a couple of Levels gives Skill points.

Main articles: Skills and Skill Tree

There are two types of upgrades available in Save the World both increase the players survivability in different ways, but both are important in playing through the game.

  • Upgrades

  • Research

Upgrades is a page which allows the player to obtain gadgets and increase some stats by playing through the game, upgrades have 6 levels and there are 13 upgrades (8 gadgets and 5 utilities). The gadget upgrades provide the player with survivability where as the tool upgrades provide the player with utilities that increase the players storage, pickaxe strength, and building stats.

Research is a page which allows the player to increase their F.O.R.T. statistics, over time the player will receive "Research Points" which can be used to increase each of the four research statistics. Every research upgrade has a max level of 600 (+600% for each stat) and progressively gets more expensive as the player upgrades them, but the players research point generation and maximum research point will both increase as the player plays the game.

Missions, Quests, Events, and Ventures

See: Quests, Event Quests

Missions , Quests, Events and Ventures are where the player actually uses their Hero to Save the World.

Whenever a player enters the game world, they are always tasked with a Mission, such as rescuing survivors or building a bomb. The victory condition for each Mission must be met in order for the Mission to be considered Completed. A Quest describes an additional task or set of tasks which must be completed in order to progress the campaign. Quests might task a player with killing a certain amount of husks, the collection of certain Quest Items, or completing multiple Missions of a certain type. Every Quest provides Rewards upon completion. Events describe limited-time Quest paths or Missions that offer unique rewards, such as Event Heroes or Event Weapons. Often times Events will reward players with event tickets that can be used to purchase special Event Llamas in an Event Store. These special llamas contain the same rewards. .Ventures is a new season-long excursion that takes place in a seasonal zone with new and unique modifiers to tackle. Each Venture season brings in a path of continued progression and fresh seasonal levels to climb. Conquering the challenges in Ventures will earn you seasonal experience which impacts the level of difficulty you encounter, weapons you find, and the seasonal rewards that you earn. Reaching higher seasonal Ventures levels unlocks Supercharger materials that can raise the level of items in your main collection -- beyond their current cap.

These are ways to jump into the action:

  • Selecting "Play Now" on the Play tab places the player into a Mission queue that will satisfy the current requirement for Save the World's Main Quest path.

Completing the Main Quest path is the only way to reach higher-level requirement Map locations.

  • Selecting "View Event" while on the Play tab brings up the player's current Event Quest progression. Selecting "Play Now" on this Event Quest screen places the player into a mission queue that will provide the player an opportunity to meet some or all of the current requirements for the current Event Quest path.

  • Players can navigate to a specific Map Location and see which Missions are available. Players can use this screen to choose a Mission based on its type or what rewards it offers.

Trivia

  • Fortnite was announced on July 12, 2012, to be the first game to utilize Unreal Engine 4[1]. It was originally stated by the developers that the game would only released for PC and/maybe next Gen consoles because Unreal Engine doesn't support 7th generation consoles.

  • Ashly Burch (Horizon: Zero Dawn, Life is Strange) stars as the voice of Ray, a quirky yet, very human, little robot that guides players through their adventures. Players also hear Phil LaMarr (Samurai Jack), Adria Arjona (Pacific Rim: Uprising, Emerald City), Amy Pemberton (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow) and Andrew Kishino (Bulletstorm) among the talented voices directed by veteran actor JB Blanc (Horizon: Zero Dawn).

  • The game mode was expected to be Free-to-Play at the end of 2018 but it remained paid and the main Campaign was cut short.

  • This game mode was not available in the "Performance" mode graphics settings prior to v19.30.

  • It is the first game mode for Fortnite and the game was only referred to this prior to the release of Battle Royale.

  • It is possible that The Last Reality is responsible for the Storm.

Gameplay

When you enter a game of Creative, you will first be in the current Featured Hub, where you can play featured islands, community-created islands, or work on your own island. You can enter these islands through different Rifts, and the golden rift will take you to your own island.

If you interact with the small screen to the right of your rift, you will be given a list of options for which Island you want to use.

Once you are in your island, you can either go to the main menu or go to your inventory. In the main menu, you will see an option called Island Settings. In this menu, you will be able to choose the settings and effects for your island, as well as who gets to edit your island. In your inventory, you will see four tabs - Prefabs, Galleries, Devices, Weapons, and Consumables. Each of these tabs will have a wide range of options of which you can choose to have in your inventory. Your main Island Settings can be accessed from the main menu.

Placing down props and builds will take up memory. Most islands have a maximum of 100,000. XL Islands are sixteen times bigger and divided into grids, with 100,000 per grid.

Many Creative games can be entered from the Lobby. The Discover tab sorts Creative games by theme (Party, Deathrun, Deathmatch, etc.) All Creative islands have a unique 12-digit map code (example 0123-4567-8901).

There is no set story and lore in Creative as it is left open by island creators. Though each Creative island are their own Realities.

Prefabs

Prefabs place down structures that are on the Battle Royale island, including some unique prefabs that cannot be found in Fortnite: Battle Royale, making them exclusive to Creative.

When you first attempt to place the prefab, a holographic radius will appear. This radius shows where the prefab will be placed once the player throws it. If the hologram is red, it will mean that the terrain isn't right for the prefab, or there is too much memory being used on the island.

Galleries

Galleries place down different columns that consist of individual tiles. These tiles can be wall tiles, roof tiles, floor tiles or props. If the gallery consists of only props, it will be titled "Prop Gallery". There are many options to choose from (See Here) for full list), and similar to Prefabs, most of them are taken away from locations on the Battle Royale Islands

Similar to prefabs, a holographic radius will appear when you throw these. This radius shows where the gallery will be placed. If it is red, it means that either you are not placing it on the right terrain, or the island has too much memory.

Devices

Devices are small props that change the way the game is played. Once a device has been interacted with, you will see a list of settings for the device. These settings alter the functionality of the device.

There is a wide range of devices to choose from (See Here for full list). Upon interaction with the device (along with the settings) is a short sentence about the function of the device, and different sentences that cover the action of each setting.

Devices can be used to do a large variety of things that alter the gameplay at game start, such as add POI markers to the island, add a storm circle to the island, add background music, floating structures, and so much more. The catalogue of devices expands within most updates.

Weapons & Consumables

Weapons and consumables can also be used in creative (See Here for full list). Most of these are taken out of Fortnite: Battle Royale. Crafting resources from Fortnite: Save the World (such as Ore and Twine) are also included in Creative. There are also items that are only in Creative. They come in Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, Legendary, Mythic, and Exotic.

Phone

The Phone can be used to place down different tiles and devices. The phone automatically enters your inventory if you have island edit, and cannot be removed.

Point the phone directly at the tile you wish to change the position of. When this is selected, you can duplicate, delete, move or rotate the tile. This also works with Devices. You can also select multiple tiles (up to 100).

Phone Tool

Flight

Anyone with island edit has the ability to fly in this game mode. There are multiple options you can choose from when in flight mode, including flight speed and phase through tiles.

Features

The Block

The Block was a competition that was available from Season 7 to Season X where you could build your own location that featured on he Battle Royale Island. To do this, you would have to select The Block Island from your island options, and then build your ideal location on the 25x25 cube at the center of that island. Lots of different members of the community had their island featured on the map.

The Hub

The hub will change its design around once a week on average. The hub is where players spawn when they launch a game of Creative. Here, they can access their own island and their friends' islands, as well as community-built islands that are featured. Also, they can enter island codes to pick their own island made by a creator.

Each hub will normally have a built-in puzzle that players can solve. Sometimes this can involve completely different creative maps. There are additionally Matchmaking Portals that players can load into and play community created maps with other players.

The top 3 playing Creative maps, the top 3 growing maps, and two featured maps are shown in the hub by each section:

  • Combat: Creative maps focusing on combat, sometimes with building.

  • Training: Creative maps that allow players to improve their skill.

  • Highlights: Promoted creative maps.

  • Variety: Creative maps of various themes.

In addition the three up and coming Creative maps are featured in the hub.

Featured Hub

This started in Chapter 2: Season 1, and is still going on today. This feature allows the community to design the Featured Hub, which is the area players spawn when they first enter a creative match. In order to create your own custom hub, you must have a creator code. You need to build your hub on Creative Hub Island A, Creative Hub Island B, or Creative Hub Island C.


Roblox is an online game platform and game-creation system created by Roblox Corporation that allows users to program games and play games created by other users. It is the primary product of Roblox Corporation. Founded by David Baszucki and Erik Cassel in 2004 and released in 2006, the platform hosts user-created games, designated as "experiences" since May 2021, of multiple genres coded in the programming language Lua. For most of Roblox's history, it was relatively small, both as a platform and a company, due to both co-founder Baszucki's lack of interest in press coverage and it being "lost among the crowd" in a large number of platforms released around the same time. Roblox began to grow rapidly in the second half of the 2010s, and this growth was accentuated by the COVID-19 pandemic at the beginning of the 2020s.

Roblox is free-to-use, with in-experience purchases available through Roblox's virtual currency "Robux". As of July 2021, Roblox has over 215 million monthly active users, with it being used by over half of all children aged under 16 in the United States. Roblox has received generally positive reviews from critics.

History

Main article: Timeline of Roblox history

Roblox in early development. (2005)

From December 2003 to January 2004, Roblox went through multiple different names, such as GoBlocks and DynaBlocks, with their domain changing respectively multiple times in the short time frame. "Roblox" became the final name choice, and was finalized on January 30, 2004.

From 2004 to February 2005, Roblox underwent alpha testing. Following that, Roblox went into beta testing until September 2006. Roblox was then fully released to everyone with multiuser experiences, and would gradually receive new updates and features over the years to shape it into what the platform is today.

Features

See also: Getting started

Roblox is available on Windows, MacOS, iOS, Android, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Microsoft Store. People can create their own unique username; formerly they could also use Roblox as a Guest which did not require to register for Roblox, but the Guest feature was removed in October 2017.

Users can also create their own places. Users also have their own character, which can be customized via avatar shop purchases, and they can participate in social aspects of Roblox such as group walls, messages, and the party chat feature.

Places

Main article: Place

Places are where users visit experiences on Roblox. Users can create an unlimited amount of places, but active places are limited to 200 places regardless of membership.

Before September 27, 2017, the number of active places a user could have was based on one's Builders Club membership:

Membership Status

Number of active places allowed


1

Former

(Expired membership)

5


10


25


100

Roblox has now changed this so that any user can have up to 200 active places at a time. Roblox provides templates for users who do not know how to start.

Premium Membership

Subscribing to Roblox Premium gets you a monthly Robux stipend and a 10% bonus when buying Robux. Not only that, but premium members can resell their in-game items and earn additional Robux from the sales, this is called a Premium Payout. They are also presented with the opportunity of trading their items with other premium members on the platform.

Avatar Shop

Main article: Avatar Shop

The Avatar Shop, formerly known as the Catalog, is a place where users can purchase accessories, animations, clothing and more to customize their avatar (hence the name).

Before Tickets was removed from Roblox, any user could accumulate tickets to buy items or even convert them into Robux. However, after its removal on April 14, 2016, there was no other form of daily benefits to users besides users that purchased Builders Club membership - before its removal - or Roblox Premium.

Clothing is the only feature on Roblox that is mainly community-driven, and clothing cannot be sold for free unless the person selling the clothes was none other than the owner himself, ROBLOX. However, clothing could have previously been sold for free, and all clothing that was priced free is still free.

On December 4, 2019, givenothingback replied to a user on the Developer Forum regarding the user thinking the site still being labeled "Catalog" but the navigation bar labeling it "Avatar Shop". givenothingback stated that "Avatar Shop" is a test name and it will be reverted to "Catalog" once they are done testing; the name has not reverted to Catalog since this reply. It is unlikely that the name will be ever be reverted, as they have changed more mentions of "Catalog" to "Avatar Shop".

Creator Marketplace

Main article: Creator Marketplace

Similar to the Avatar Shop, the Creator Marketplace is used by users and developers to publish models, scripts, audio, decals, meshes and plugins for other Roblox users to view or use.

All available items in it can be purchased for free with the exception of plugins, and any user may take such purchased items to place in their inventory for their own use.

Users can obtain an unlimited number of items from the Creator Marketplace. Furthermore, some groups placing their models in it to make it easier for assets for them to be used in multiple experience.

Sometime in late 2018, Roblox removed the ability for users to search for Creator Marketplace items that are off-sale, due to many assets by developers being stolen by others with no credit.

In December 2019, RoxyBloxyy announced plans for paid plugins.[6] The announcement also revealed plans for many other marketplace types to become paid access in the future. The paid plugins update was implemented later that same month.

Blog

Main article: Blogs

Roblox runs a blog called DevHub, where they post about released updates and showcase creations by developers and staff.

Groups

Main article: Group

There are many groups on Roblox. All users can join them, and all users are able to create a group if they have at least 100 Robux on their account (formerly, only Premium members can create one for 100 Robux). Users can join up to 100 groups regardless of membership. Before mid-December 2019, free users can join up to 5 groups at once while Premium members can join up to 100, regardless of tier.

Robux (formerly styled ROBUX) is the online currency used on Roblox. Robux was added on May 14, 2007. Robux were one of two currencies on the platform alongside Tix, which were removed on April 14, 2016. The Robux name was conceived by Shedletsky, being a portmanteau on "Roblox" and "bucks".[1]

Robux is known as Roblox's primary currency by the community and staff; currently, all paid items within the avatar shop are sold for Robux, including user-created content such as microtransactions and game passes.

Robux has been intertwined with meme culture as well. Memes based on a virtual currency typically mock Robux (as well as other in-game currencies, such as Fortnite's V-Bucks). It is used both inside and outside of Roblox culture due to its state as an iconic virtual currency. An example is the Bobux meme that had been famous back in late 2020.

On November 21, 2019, the Robux icon was replaced from the former R$ symbol to a more-generic rounded hexagonal shape and the color was changed to gold. The usage of the former "R$" abbreviation was discouraged by Roblox after the icon replacement, most likely because an actual currency, the Brazilian real, uses the same abbreviation.

Earning Robux

Roblox released the ability to purchase Robux through its website on September 26, 2008.[2] The ability to purchase Robux through the Roblox Mobile App was released on December 11, 2012.[3] Robux can also be purchased through a Roblox card, which can be purchased at many stores worldwide physically and online. Users with an active Premium membership will receive an additional Robux bonus if they purchase Robux. Users who did not own a credit card could use Rixty, which allowed them to purchase gift cards and use Coinstar machines to change the spare change into Robux. However, this option is not available anymore.

Roblox Premium

Main article: Roblox Premium

Roblox Premium provides members with an amount of Robux each month depending on the membership they purchased. Instead of being named like Builders Club, each tier is named after how much monthly Robux is given:

  • Roblox Premium 1,000 (US$9.99 or GBP 8.99/month)

Robux Microsoft Rewards Redeeming Page

History

  • Users located in the United States or Canada with a valid phone number can create a Microsoft account and earn points to redeem Robux at a rate of 100 Robux per 1,500 points.[4]

    • The offer was initially introduced on December 28, 2020, and rewarded each new account in the U.S. 100 Robux for free.[5] However, this was discontinued a day later due to its high popularity which caused Microsoft to run out of Robux redeem codes.[6] The Robux offer was fully removed on July 25, 2021.

    • The offer was later reintroduced on January 12, 2021, allowing the player to trade 1,500 points for 100 Robux, 3,000 points for 200 Robux, and 6,000 points for 400 Robux.[7] A day later, the 200 and 400 Robux options were removed for unknown reasons, leaving only the 100 Robux option available.[8] The offer ended on January 15, 2021.

    • The offer was re-enabled on February 9, 2021. This offer initially had the same requirements as the prior offer in January.[9] On February 18, 2021, two more options were added, which required users to attain 12,000 Reward Points to claim a redeem code for 800 Robux, and 15,000 Reward Points for 1,000 Robux.[10]

    • On April 21, 2021, the 200 Robux option was removed from the offer. However, on April 27, 2021, it was added back.

    • The Robux offer was removed on July 25, 2021, for all options.

    • On September 14, 2021, the Robux offer was reintroduced but only in the U.S. It was removed 10 days later on September 24, 2021.

    • On October 11, 2021, the Robux offer was reintroduced again.

    • On December 3, 2021, a sweepstake entry (only in the United States) in which if someone were to join it, they will acquire one million Robux. You can get entries by getting points The sweepstakes will end on 1/15/22.

    • On December 7, 2021, an accessory Upside Down Elf, was added as a virtual item in Microsoft Rewards.

    • On January 13, 2021, the 200 and 400 was removed, leaving the 100 Robux option available (only in the United States). Eventually, the Robux offer was completely removed on January 15 12PM PT in all countries.

    • As of January 31 of 2022, ROBLOX players are allowed to redeem codes with reward points.

Former methods

All users earned 10 Tix daily as a log-in reward and 1 Ticket per place visit.[11]

Prior to August 2019, Builders Club, Turbo Builders Club and Outrageous Builders Club subscribers also received a daily Robux stipend:

  • Builders Club members earned 15 (19 cents USD) Robux per day.

  • Turbo Builders Club members earned 35 (44 cents USD) Robux per day.

  • Outrageous Builders Club members earned 60 (75 cents USD) Robux per day.

  • Users could also convert Tix into Robux using the trade menu. Contrary to popular belief, it was not at a fixed rate. 10 Tix was equal to 1 Robux initially, and hovered around 14-17 Tix for 1 Robux toward the end of the Trade Currency app.

Refunds

The message a player receives from Roblox if an item they owned was moderated.

In September 2021, Roblox added a refund policy, which allows users to get refunds for Robux. If the user had an item that was moderated and deleted by Roblox from the original user who made that item, they would first get a message from Roblox that they have an item that was moderated. Then, they will give you an agreement if that user wanted a refund or not. If they agreed, they will wait 1-2 business days for the refund to go into effect.[12] After it goes into effect, Roblox will message you saying that they gave you the amount of Robux received from the moderated item.

Example of second message saying the amount of Robux received/type of accessory.

Robux prices

For users located outside of the United States, prices are displayed as their country's currency equivalents (however exchange rates are not fully taken into account by Roblox when buying directly from the website).

Red shaded options means they have been removed and cannot be used by any means. Users with Roblox Premium receive a 10% Robux purchase bonus.

Note: Different currencies have different values.

Currency Exchange

Main article: RoblEX

With the November 2008 release of the Robux currency exchange, players were given the ability to exchange Tix into Robux and vice-versa.[13] Roblox's exchange rate was based on user demand and typically hovered around 1 Robux for about 20 Tickets for market orders. However, on April 14, 2016, the currency exchange was shut down following the removal of tickets.

Developer's Exchange

Main article: DevEx

The Developer's Exchange (shortened as DevEx) was released on October 1, 2013. This feature allows developers who meet specific qualifications to exchange Robux into real-life currency on a monthly basis. In order to qualify for DevEx, users must have an active Premium subscription, be a community member in good standing, have earned over 100,000 Robux, a valid PayPal account, and be verified. Currently, developers earn US$350 per 100,000 Robux exchanged through DevEx.

Exchanging Credit

Since October 2019, leftover credit acquired from Roblox cards can be converted into Robux in the Billing tab under Settings on the Roblox website. The conversion uses the rate of US$1 cent per 1 Robux.

Robux scams

Warning

DO NOT click on or give login details to any 3rd party service, experience or user claiming to reward "free Robux," "free Avatar Shop (catalog) items," or "free Premium membership." Robux, paid-for Avatar Shop items, and a Premium membership must all be purchased with real cash (in the case of Robux and a Premium membership) or Robux. (in the case of paid-for Avatar Shop items)

While certain users have claimed to gain free Robux and/or other usually paid-for items, these are either advertisements which violate the Terms of Use, or bot/hijacked accounts promoting a scam. Report any scams encountered to Roblox moderation and NEVER click on any suspicious links on the Roblox website or enter any code into the inspect console.

Main article: Scam

Robux is most often acquired by directly purchasing it on the Roblox website because most players cannot earn it or do not earn enough via developer products or other goods to obtain the items they want on the platform. As a result of this, many players who have never spent any real life currency or have only spent a small amount on Roblox often resort to begging. There are also malicious users who attempt to scam users in order to take their Robux or other valuable assets (including the account itself).

Scam bots

Main article: Scam § Scam bots

Scam bots were bots programmed by an individual or group seeking account access to gain personal information such as passwords or to take assets from the account. Many of the bots have followed users all with similar bios and avatars. Most have been terminated but there are still more. They are most commonly found in games and the comment sections of items. Scam games have also been created by bots in an attempt to convince users to provide the scammer with their account passwords. These often include a fake player list with Roblox staff on the list to trick users into believing the game is legitimate. They join a game, with a non-Robux skin and a random generated username, examples are: aBqqR157U or cL4iMBuXn0wfR33 and etc. They type in to go to the site in the chat and leave quickly after its sent. There is no use reporting them because there are too many.

Scam bots have also been known to formerly use the official "/me" chat command in Roblox games to convince users that they received Robux from a scam website. Due to this, the /me command was disabled by default in all Roblox games on May 17, 2019.[14]

They also used "{Server}:" in the beginning of their messages to convince users that the server was encouraging use of the website.

As of now, the amount of Scam bots has decreased, and Roblox has started to ban any game and user, that is programmed to scam.

Robux value

The value of Robux has decreased significantly since its initial release. With 3,297 Robux, a Roblox blog article once declared Miked as the wealthiest Roblox player. Today, many users have much more than this without being considered as wealthy by the community. This is largely due to the fact that new Robux is generated every time a user earns a monthly stipend from their Premium membership or purchases it directly from Roblox, which in turn contributes to the currency's inflation as an ever-growing amount of players continue to desire goods or features that cost Robux.

Current theories about the dramatic shift in Robux value are embedded in the idea of supply and demand. Supply and demand are typically inversely related, and the balance of both establish the equilibrium price. For example, by selling most of their items in the avatar shop for Robux and incentivizing users to exchange Robux for real-life currency through the Developer's Exchange system, the demand for Robux has increased. This increase in demand compared to a minimal increase in the supply of Robux creates a deficit of Robux.

According to the Developer's Exchange system, 1 Robux equals to US 0.35 cents, while the official Robux purchase system and the leftover currency exchange system says 1 Robux equals to US 1.25 cents.

As of March 2022, Robux is said to be worth more than the Russian ruble due to sanctions against Russia by the international community in response to the country's invasion of Ukraine.[15]

Purchase decreases

On July 12, 2019, the Builders Club bonus for each Robux purchase option was reduced to only 10% of the non-membership Robux, the $24.95 option replaced by a new $19.95 option for 1,700 Robux (1,870 with Builders Club) and the $199.95 option removed. It is speculated that this was in order to be able to pay developers more. However, many users were disappointed with this change as it means they will have to pay more real life currency to receive the same amount of Robux as before.

Icon replacement

Gold variant of the new icon

Sometime in early 2019, an image of a new icon was found in the Roblox files. The file was named robux@2x.png. Many users began to speculate that Robux would be replaced with another currency, while others believed only the icon would change. Roblox accidentally leaked the new Robux icon at the RDC 2019 event, and in response to a question regarding whether Robux would be replaced with another currency entirely, they stated that it would remain as Robux.[16]

Later on, during November, the new icon was split into three colors: black, grey, and a yellow to gold gradient.[17] In the same month, it began to appear for random users as part of A/B testing. By the end of the month, it was enabled for all users.[18]

The new icon has received controversy from many users, some stating that the icon has no resemblance to Robux,[19][20][21] while others believe that it looks like a lug nut rather than any form of currency. Only a few stated that it was for the better, because the old Robux icon may be confused with the real-world currency the Brazilian Real, which uses the symbol R$.[22]
