v2.20.61 2019-12-22T06:00:00Z

  • Snow, Snowmen, Christmas Tree, and strings of lights were added to the lobby for Christmas!

  • Added new map to the game, Pirate Ship!

The Pirate Ship is the 11th map to be added to the game. It’s set in the middle of a barren ocean with only a few uninhabitable islands around, and a scent of treasure in the air. The ship itself makes up the entire play area featuring 2 lower decks filled with cannons, bunk rooms, and a storage area. The top deck has 3 layers to it that start high toward the bow of the ship, sink lower toward the middle, and rise up at the end to boast the helm of the ship. On each level of the upper deck is also the dining hall and captain’s quarters. This is by far the most vertically emphasized map the game has received, making it stand apart from all the rest!

  • Fixed bug where an inactive Captivator dropoff would take your key even if it’s mid-release animation.
  • Fixed Prison Map’s vent jump being made near impossible due to Roblox updates.
