SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 27, 2016 — (PRNewswire) —   ROBLOX expands the boundaries of user-generated gaming with its launch of ROBLOX for Xbox One on Microsoft's Xbox Live. ROBLOX's unique platform debut on Xbox One includes 15 user-created games, across 10 genres. The free app harnesses the unmatched diversity of the ROBLOX community by showcasing the work of top creators from the United States, Canada, Europe and Latin America and featuring developers as young at 13 years old. ROBLOX will continuously unlock new titles on its Xbox app, ultimately providing unlimited access to the millions of ROBLOX experiences.

ROBLOX-Powering Imagination(TM)

"We are creating the worlds' best virtual universe for imagining with friends," said David Baszucki, CEO of ROBLOX. "Bringing ROBLOX to Xbox is a huge leap forward in our mission to unite and inspire the creators, dreamers and explorers of the next generation."

Over 15 million people come to ROBLOX each month to imagine, play, learn and create together via PC, Mac, Android, and iOS devices. ROBLOX's family-friendly platform sees over 80 million hours of engagement every month, outpacing Pinterest, Reddit and Wikipedia (comScore 9/2015).  With the addition of Xbox to their platform's offerings, ROBLOX is continuing to eliminate the barriers between friends gathering together virtually, regardless of device.

"More and more in today's world, the opportunity to imagine and play with friends is compromised by the passive consumption of digital media and the limitations inherent in structured computer games," said Baszucki. "The ROBLOX vision combines the best of both worlds by creating a dynamic virtual community in which millions of user-generated family-friendly experiences promote imagination, role-playing and creativity."

ROBLOX is powered by a rapidly growing community of over 300,000 creators who produce an almost infinite variety of highly immersive 3D experiences that range from multiplayer games and competitions to interactive adventures.

The launch of ROBLOX for Xbox seamlessly integrates the PC and mobile ROBLOX community in console play. New users simply sign in with their Xbox gamer tag. Existing ROBLOX users link their accounts with their ROBLOX username and password in game, choosing between their customized avatar and one of 6 brand new Xbox avatars.

ROBLOX for Xbox is rated E10+ for fantasy violence (online interaction not rated by ESRB) and will require an Xbox Live Gold membership to play.
