Just in time for the premiere of the new Star Wars movie, Roblox rolled out the new Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Creator Challenge.
The popular online gaming platform Roblox has teamed up with Disney to offer a unique challenge to its users. Players can design and build their very own driftspeeder to race head-to-head against other players. They can also unlock limited-edition virtual items, like a Stormtrooper Helmet, Rey’s Staff and BB-8.
Players need to complete lessons that teach the basic elements of building and publishing a game on Roblox, like game design, building and 3D modeling, scripting and coding. Once the lessons are completed, users can collect the Star Wars-inspired items.
“Star Wars has inspired generations of fans of all ages with its compelling narrative, expansive universe, and iconic characters, and we’re proud to bring a piece of that to Roblox’s millions of users,” said Craig Donato, Chief Business Officer at Roblox. “Our collaboration with Disney is all about unlocking your imagination, empowering anyone to create their own immersive worlds, and simply having fun while learning the fundamentals of coding and game design in the process.”
The Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Creator Challenge is on now through Jan. 6, 2020.
