Let the Countdown to the Virtual BLOXcon Begin!

September 14, 2013

by Andrew Haak


Virtual BLOXcon is now just one week away! The online event will give everyone in the ROBLOX community a chance to experience our annual fan conventions via a livestream from ROBLOX HQ, recorded BLOXcon footage, and a lineup of great games. On top of that, ROBLOX staff will be playing games and chatting with you all day, so you could very well get to meet us – virtually, at least.

Here are the important details:

  • Who: ROBLOX staff and you
  • What: online BLOXcon fan convention
  • Where: from to your desktop, laptop or mobile device
  • When: Saturday, September 21st (starting at roughly 9 a.m. Pacific Time)
  • Why: participate in Q&A, play games and chat with us, experience BLOXcon, watch presentations and demos, and more
  • How: simply visit (it’s not yet active, but will be next week); this will be the Virtual BLOXcon “hub,” where you’ll find the livestream, game contest winners, recorded content, merchandise store and more

Virtual BLOXcon Body PackageAs you may recall, we recently ran a Virtual BLOXcon Game Contest. The submission and voting periods ended late this week, so we’ll be reaching out to the winners of the contest – whose games will be featured at Virtual BLOXcon – in the near future. Thanks to everyone who participated in the contest, whether you submitted an entry or made your voice heard during the voting period!

Next week, we’ll be publishing a list of ROBLOX staff who will be participating in Virtual BLOXcon so you can do your best to track them down in game. We’ll also be launching a new merchandise store — if you meet a certain spending threshold on shirts, earbuds, hoodies, pins and other ROBLOX schwag during the event, you’ll receive a Virtual BLOXcon body package (pictured at right) only available during the event for your character!

Next Saturday, join us for for a day of BLOXcon. We look forward to seeing you there.
