Hey all,

Our new Social Menu / friends & parties UI update is now live!

The Social Menu update adds new UI-based ways to manage friends, parties and guilds. All of our current systems use chat-based commands which work well, but are hard for new players to learn. We hope this new system will make things easier for both new players and old players, adding new visual ways to manage friends, parties and guilds, and make it easier for people to join in with the fun! :D

Please Note: All the old commands still work. This new system adds new ways for you to manage your friends and parties, not intended to replace commands for people who prefer typing commands.

▶ How to Use the Social Menu

The Social Menu has replaced the My Profile icon on your hot bar. To open the Social Menu, simply right-click whilst holding your player head icon in the hotbar in lobbies.

The Social Menu is split into 5 tabs which you can access by clicking the icons at the top of the menu. From left to right, the icons represent:
  • Edit My Profile / Change Settings
  • View and manage Friends
  • Create and manage Parties
  • Manage your Guild
  • View a list of Recent Players, players who you have recently been in a game with
It's our hope that these menus make it easier for you to do things without having to memorize a lot of commands. In the Profile / Settings tab you can add various social media sites so friends can follow you on Twitter, YouTube or other sites. And with Recent Players, you can easily find the people you just played with and message or add them as Friends.

You can also view other player's profiles by clicking on their name in the chat, or by clicking their heads in any of the tabs in the menu.

From the Player Profile menu, you can:
  • Send the player a friend request or remove them from your friends list
  • View their Social Media accounts
  • Report the player easily
  • Invite them to a party
  • Add them to your ignore list
  • Manage their guild membership if they are in your guild

We hope you enjoy this update! We consider this the first version of the Social Menu, and will be updating it according to your feedback. Let us know what you think in the comments! :)

We've teased it on Twitter, and it's finally here - introducing our latest PTL game, Hypixel Zombies!

Zombies is a round-based wave survival game inspired by our favorite 'horde' based games over the past 10 years, and a spiritual successor to classic Hypixel arcade game The Blocking Dead. In Zombies, you team up with 3 other players in a cooperative fight to stay alive as wave after wave of undead creatures break through barriers across the map and attack you. Kill zombies and repair barriers to gain gold you can use to unlock new areas and buy new weapons and upgrades - can you make it all the way to Round 30?

Hypixel Zombies is replacing UHC Deathmatch in the PTL. As we said when we first launched the lobby, only the most popular and most hyped games will continue active development and become full minigames on the server. We know some of you were big UHC deathmatch fans, and we hope with the rapid development of the PTL we'll be able to make a more popular game in future that satisfies your tastes :)

v0.1 of Hypixel Zombies is available to play right now in the Prototype Lobby. Like all PTL games, Zombies is still in active development, so as always report any bugs you find and feel free to offer suggestions. Read below to find out more about the game!

▶ How to Find and Play PTL Games
The Prototype Lobby (PTL) is a space on Hypixel where you can test all our in-development minigames and give your feedback.

To access the PTL, simply do one of the following:
  1. Open the Game Compass (compass icon on hotbar) and click the Anvil icon (PTL)
  2. Click the Prototype Lobby NPC in the Main Lobby
  3. Or type the command /lobby PTL into your chat and send it
Once in the PTL, you'll see that you can join a game of Zombies via the NPC to the left of the infoboard.

▶ What is Hypixel Zombies?
Zombies is a round-based survival game in which you team up with 3 other players to fight waves of enemies. At first the game is relatively straightforward - shoot zombies with your gun in order to gain Gold and advance to the next rounds. As you progress through each round, enemies become stronger and more difficult to defeat with just basic weaponry. Advance through the map to gain access to better weapons and armor, and flip the Power Switch to activate machines. Machines cost gold to use, but give you various benefits that will aid in your struggle.

In v0.1 of the game, there are 30 rounds. Survive all the way through round 30 to win!

Controls
  • Fire Weapon - Right Click
  • Reload Weapon - Left Click
  • Open Doors / Buy Weapons - Right Click
  • Repair Windows - Hold Shift
  • Revive Teammates - Hold Shift

Hints & Tips
  • Your current ammo count is displayed on the EXP bar above your hot bar. If you run out of ammo you'll need to buy more.
  • Different guns have different ranges and bullet spreads. Use the right gun for the right occasion!
  • Don't spend all your gold on opening doors! Make sure to upgrade weapons and armor for a better chance at survival.
  • If caught in a tight spot, switch to your sword for a quick melee attack. Be warned: this has a cooldown.
  • When a teammate gets knocked down, you can revive them by holding SHIFT near them. If you don't revive them, they will die - but they will return the next round if surviving players make it that far

We hope you enjoy playing Hypixel Zombies! If you like it, remember to add Hype to it in the lobby and leave your feedback on the forums. If the game is popular enough we will be updating it with new maps, features, and more scary zombies! Good luck surviving :D
