News & Updates πŸ“°

Can you believe we're halfway through 2024 already?! It's been a busy couple of months of updates and announcements, here's everything you might have missed since our last issue.

Parkour Worlds 🌍

Earlier this month, the release of Parkour Worlds brought brand new lands filled to the brim with unique - and challenging - parkour courses!

A whole new world...

Parkour Worlds will see you embarking on an epic journey where you'll traverse ancient temples, climb towering trees, and leap over scorching lava.

As you complete courses, you'll earn star coins and unlock new worlds to explore and conquer! Hive+ members and replay pass holders can also take on an extra challenge and chase ghosts of their best runs.

Have you ventured into the Parkour Worlds yet? And if so, have you completed Dragon's Dare?

SkyWars: Classic βš”οΈ

Get ready for a trip down memory lane with SkyWars Classic, our upcoming Limited Time Mode!
