Roblox highlighted some of the best new games coming to its platform at its developer conference in San Francisco today.
The games include Playgrounds Basketball, Eternal Heroes and Skullbeat. Both Eternal Heroes and Skullbeat are playable in alpha form today, while Playgrounds Basketball will debut in the coming days.
Roblox provided funding for the titles with the goal of supporting developers who experiment with new technology and push the boundaries on Roblox. The Roblox Game Fund is a $35 million international game fund for creators building the next generation of experiences on Roblox. The money helps de-risk creation and helps guide the developers.
Fakty Miami Playgrounds Basketball
They include Playgrounds Basketball by Saber Interactive. It’s an original arcade-style basketball experience from the creators of the NBA Playgrounds video game franchise.
The experience features colorful arcade-style 2-on-2 and 1-on-1 gameplay with power-ups, huge jumps, and acrobatic jams that fosters a seamless first-time user experience across platforms from mobile to PC to console. There are five locations based on real-world cities.
Saber has been a platform-agnostic developer of video games for more than 20 years, developing original hits like World War Z and SnowRunner.
“We are excited to bring Playgrounds Basketball to the Roblox platform,” said Corey Wade, Saber’s head of business development, in a statement. “Saber’s Playgrounds Sports brand is all about pick up and play arcade sports, which we feel is a great fit for any gamer of any age. We can’t wait for Roblox users to experience both the familiar Playgrounds elements and the new features we’ve created with this version.”
Any basketball court is a place of competition and community, but Rucker Park in Harlem, New York, takes everything to another level. Saber drew inspiration from this iconic “playground”, where crowds gather daily to socialize and watch outstanding talent play game after game. They seek to make Playgrounds Basketball the Rucker Park of Roblox.
