Today we've rolled an update to Arcade! Which includes the addition of Zombies and Hide and Seek as well as some bug fixes and QoL improvements. Read on to see what's new and all the changes to Arcade!
The promised map rotation for Skywars Solo & Doubles has finally arrived! We are sorry it took a little longer than expected as we have been working hard on improving our building process to make we can commit to offering regular map rotation for Skywars without affecting map releases for other games.
▶ What does Map Rotation include?
Every 4 to 6 weeks a new map rotation will be set active.
New exciting maps released more regularly.
Previously removed maps to be brought back.
Removing some maps to be revamped or to be returned in future rotations.
The first rotation is already live, and alongside Hibiscus which we gave a sneak peek at last week there is plenty more, so make sure to continue reading to see all the new and returning maps for this rotation.
The new update has been released for UHC, available to play now in the new UHC Lobby. Read on below for a full list of changes and additions, or play it right now by clicking the UHC Lobby NPC, game menu icon, or using the command /lobby uhc.
▶ What is in this update?
Private game settings to create customized games
New event modes
Bug fixes and improvements
As always, if you find any bugs or issues please report them in the bugs section on the forums HERE.
This update is following up after the last UHC QOL update which you can read HERE.
This coming weekend, from 8th to the 10th June, we are bringing you the
BLITZ SURVIVAL GAMES WEEKEND
with 5x COINS
and 5x HYPIXEL EXPERIENCE
for all Blitz Daily Quests and all Blitz Games played!
As some of you might know, Dctr in cooperation with the Player Council recently released a great update to Blitz SG with a ton of new content (full release notes can be found here) and we would like more of you to go in and enjoy this amazing update.
Therefore we are creating a small incentive for new and old Blitz players, to join us in playing Blitz this weekend.
The reason behind this:
With incentives like these, we are going to try and get some more players into some of our older games to strengthen their community and reduce their waiting time for game starts. We will be trying a few things to accomplish that, take note of what is working and what not, and then implement those changes to other games as well.
This could mean that a 5x Coins & XP weekend happens for other games but also, that we try something else if we don't see any impact of those events.
Ideally, we want to add value to one of our older games and pair it up with an event or other incentives for the Hypixel community to join in and enjoy the update together with game veterans.
Again, this does not mean that we will have weekends like this one for every single game, but we want to try and expose those older fun games to a bigger audience.
This being said, we will continue to try and add value to all our games, but you can understand that we cannot spend all of our development time on updating older games.
Popular games (current flavor is BedWars) are often requiring more attention but we are still trying to balance between game updates for older games, game updates for newer games as well as server wide improvements and features.
I cannot promise you that we will update your favourite game within the next weeks, but we will try and do our best to add value to as many games as we can.
We hope to see you and your friends playing Blitz SG this weekend and wish all of you a great time and tons of fun!
