Early Access Patch 4

Mythical Games2 min read

As we’ve teased previously, there’s a very exciting update coming to Blankos Block Party on November 18th at 10 AM PST / 18:00 UTC!

This blog post focuses on a KEY feature, as well as the addition of some MONSTER tunes! You could say it’s a healthy BALANCE of the two!

The Desk & UI

We showed off the surface of the new Desk and UI yesterday, you can learn more about that here.

Additionally, our menus have also been updated accordingly. Every button available to you is now represented in the row of tabs at the top of your screen- just like how it is at your Desk!

Party Bus

As you’ll recall in the Desk blog post, the Party Bus has been moved to the ‘Social’ tab. A new feature we’d like to emphasize is the fact that every player who loads into a Block via the Party Bus will load into their own private lobby. Other players will either need to be in your group or know the join code to join your party.

Keybinds

No need to pinch yourselves- you’re not dreaming! We’re finally adding keybind remapping! We know this has been a long awaited, and very highly demanded, feature and we’re excited to finally bring it to you all. You can change your keybinds by navigating to the options menu at the top of your screen. From there you should already see all of your controls laid out in front of you- happy remapping!

Monster…. Cats?!

Shhh… We’ll have a blog post about this soon, but we can’t wait for you all to jam out to some amazing Monstercat tracks at the Desk and in parties!

Dev Stream

We will be streaming on Twitch November 19th at 12PM PST / 20:00 UTC. Come catch us on stream as we discuss the plans for future updates for Blankos and upcoming content!
