Early Access Patch
We’ve been hard at work evaluating the feedback and input from the community since Early Access has launched. Your feedback is invaluable and is helping us dictate the direction of the game. This update is the first of many foundational patches for the future of the game. We will be deploying a patch at 9:30AM PT on July 28th with no downtime.
A lot of the player-facing additions in the patch focus on Quality of Life (QoL) updates, but the patch has a lot going on behind the scenes. This will be a foundational patch that will set us up for upcoming features, including upcoming Party Passes. Additionally, there are a few optimization changes going into this patch.
New August Party Pass
As previously announced, a brand new Party Pass is kicking off on August 3rd at 2AM PT! a New challenges, new rewards, and of course a new NFT you can earn just by playing Blankos Block Party. The new Party Pass will introduce 30 tiers of rewards with the Toaster Backpack being the NFT reward and will run until August 24th.
Other rewards include Moola, Blanko Bucks, XP Chips, Gumballs, emotes, and non-NFT accessories.
The current Party Pass will be ending with this new one on August 3rd. This means that if you’re still gunning for Sergeant Poppy, you have 1 week left to unlock it before the reset.
Rock Boogie by Risa Tochigi drops on July 28th at 3PM PT after the patch. This new Blanko will only have 3000 mints and will be $14.99 on the web Shop or 1500 Blanko Bucks in-game.
New Moola Accessories
Expiring Items on July 28th at 3PM PT
There are four accessories leaving on July 28th at 3PM PT, plus 2 gumballs and 2 emotes that are in the store now.
Quality of Life Updates
We've heard you've been having troubles with shelf performance... Well worry no more! With this patch comes a buff to Shelf optimization. We know you all hold your collections near and dear, and we want the experience of stepping back and taking it all in to be as smooth as butter. One of the main issues right now is that it takes way too long to load Shelves with large collections. We've heard your feedback, and felt it ourselves. We want to make sure your Shelf is a great experience. Starting with this patch, we will be introducing optimization fixes. These fixes will start by addressing long load times and lag issues with the Shelf, but this will be the start of building the foundations for better ways of showcasing your Blankos collection.
