What’s coming in v2.3?
Yup, our artist has been hard at work on our new player character. On the Xbox 360, we have access to the Microsoft Avatars, so those are used on that platform. However on PC, we now have a range of Avatars we can use, that are custom made and fit the aesthetics of BlockWorld.
This is the next big step towards Multiplayer, so if you have not already purchased BlockWorld for Windows 8, please do soon. The continued sales we’re seeing allow us to develop for this platform.
There is also a collection of new blocks coming, and a complete re-balancing of the game. So after the v2.3 update, BlockWorld will feel different in subtle ways.
BlockWorld v2.1.1 for Xbox 360 was approved earlier today, and can be played right now!

We have a very very busy release schedule here at 2.0 Studios, so in an effort to get out our updates faster, there will be fewer posts made by us. In addition, when frequent posting resumes, we will be changing the way we do things.
Less words, more videos. Change logs are the exception. Continue reading
This is a massive update, that makes some very substantial improvements to gameplay, and adds quite a few hefty features.
First on the list, we were thinking awesome new Awards that make players work for the new content would be a great idea. Build at deep levels, have 10 friends join or blow a lot of stuff up will all unlock new fences, blocks, and items. Visit the Awards screen, and complete the Award tree to unlock all of the new stairs, blocks and more!
Avatar Miner Paintball v1.2 has been approved, and you should update your game immediately! This is a maintenance update that focused on four issues:
- Match disconnections induced within AMP are now rare
- Code4 during gameplay fixed
- Gameplay quirks corrected (read below)
- Lost saves from v1.0 Recovered
Smaller, Frequent Updates
This is the second update since launch on the 21st of May, giving us an average of 12 days between updates. We’re working hard to make this pace even quicker, and get more updates out sooner, and make gameplay better with every revision. Looking back a few posts to our forecasts, we’re doing quite well.
Lost Saves are Back
The version v1.1 update corrected a typo in the save file system, that causes save files created in the initial release of AMP to become inaccessible. V1.1 recovers these save files, and puts them where they belong. When they are found, you are notified.
