Blankos Block Party released a new game mode available to all players, Blanko Brawl. The new mode includes 4 stages of gameplay and comes along with a nice set of updates on movements, the game builder, and a pre-match lobby.
On March 23th, Blankos concluded the update on all their servers and shipped the new mode live. The main objective of Blanko Brawl is to outperform the competition in elimination-based Stages and be the last Blanko standing.
Blankos Brawl Stages each consist of 1 of 3 game modes, racing, shooting, or vibe collect. The latter now includes one-time vibes only, which won’t respawn.
Based on how many players the Brawl starts with, you’ll either be loaded into a Team Stage or a Qualifier Stage (FFA). There are usually a total of 4 stages for each game, and the last player wins the game.
Players will be able to play in the new modes with an all-new layout, including a pre-game lobby, a fully revisioned leaderboard system, and a new game pass. The leaderboard and the game pass will dictate your XP gain.
Along with the new game mode, Blankos also introduced “Blanko Brawl Updates”, a series of improvements to the gameplay and characters, making the NFTs in the game more valuable and enjoyable. Blankos can be bought in the OpenSea store and assets, alongside boxed Blankos, are available for purchase in the Mythical marketplace.
Blanko Brawl Updates
In the new release, the team introduced the following changes:
Blankos are now able to Drift Jump, Hover and have new options to fly and speed up their run.
The drift jump allows your Blanko to temporarily stall in the air by kicking their feet to stay afloat for a small duration that’s dictated by how long you hold down the jump button.
In this update to flight, all flight accessories are being universalized. Regardless of the object or asset you use to fly, the animation and controls will be the same.
In “Hover” mode, your height position will remain constant until interrupted, letting you reach buildings and structures more easily. This new movement option will make runs more enjoyable and practical.
The new Blanko Bat can be swung, charged up, and let loose to provoke damage to your enemy and steal Vibes when competing in various stages of the game. The bat is a melee-only weapon.
You may charge up the bat by pressing and holding the fire button for up to three charge states, with each state increasing the damage output once the bat is swung.
New Interactive Props
For the game and level builders out there, Blankos Block Party added new components to the game engine, allowing you to create even more complex structures to publish for others to enjoy.
The new props include the Vibe Cloud, which will spawn random vibes (energy in the game), the disappearing platform, a floor tile that is visible only at times, and destructible props – a great combo with the bat.
The team also added new decorations, and got rid of the XP happy hour, and will now follow a more linear process of XP management dictated by the leaderboard.
