It’s hard to deny the popularity of the strange, long-time game that is Roblox. The California-based company reports that the Roblox player count features 90 million active monthly users on their game around the globe.
The company gives credit to its large presence internationally for these numbers. Europe is the home of “millions of users” that play on the platform. The game supports several different languages besides English, such as German and French. According to the press release:
“Developers worldwide have access to tools to easily create and publish experiences that can be shared simultaneously by players in multiple languages.”
Roblox users are predominantly children, and part of the announcement talked about how the company will incorporate safeguards for its international audiences.
As such, Roblox Corporation will provide French and German servers with “community moderation, customer support, and parental resources.” You can get an idea of what this entails by visiting Roblox Corporation’s “Parents” or “Trust & Safety” sections of its site.
Roblox is a platform for creators to develop worlds with unique activities such as creating your own theme park or partaking in some good ol’ dungeon crawling while playing with friends online. In some ways, it’s like highly-modded Minecraft servers.
Further proving its popularity, the corporation and WWE came together for WrestleMania. Players are able to get cosmetic, WWE-related items, including some based on famous wrestlers who were involved in the big wrestling event including Becky Lynch and Xavier Woods.
If you would like to play Roblox for yourself, you can create an account and join some games for free.
It’s hard to deny the popularity of Roblox. You might think to yourself that you’ve never heard or seen anyone play it, yet it has so many people. I’ve seen a lot of kids on their tablets playing it. The first time surprised me since I remember seeing ads for the platform when I was a kid on the internet. There’s something special about this game, and I’m not sure why. From my point of view, Minecraft looks far more appealing. Perhaps because Roblox is free and provides quick access to thousands of different worlds is reason enough for children to go wild over the game.
