The largest user generated online gaming platform, Roblox, is the latest to jump on the Ready Player One hype train. The massively popular gaming site has announced that it will be hosting its own Roblox RPO hunt, complete with in-game prizes. More importantly, bragging rights backed up by a one-of-a-kind Dominus.
While the Robolx RPO hunt might not be a VR experience, such as the eight that HTC release, this kind of publicity is good for VR. What better way to get kids asking their parents about VR? With Roblox being most popular with children and teens, the game could spark an interest in the movie and get the ball rolling from there. Hook them while their young!
The Robox RPO hunt is aimed at cashing in on the hype from the upcoming movie. But, it does provide a good bit of fun. Players hunt down keys, represented by crowns in this case, and take down a Mega-Corp to complete the quest. The games website will feature a set of clues, including a video clue delivered by the movie’s cast, as each key is found.
The first person to discover a key will get their name on the legendary scoreboard and some in-game loot. Be the first person to collect all the keys and take down the evil Mega-Corp and earn a one-of-a-kind Dominus. Not to mention eternal bragging rights. The first clue is already up, and the hunt is under way. Get cracking!
