*We apologize for the technical difficulties we’ve had the past couple weeks. The Arena Feature and Co-Op Feature have now been updated as well. Since we also had difficulties with changing the prisoner unlocks, we are releasing FBI Agent1 & Steamroll Victim #2 as a freebie. You should receive the unlocks when you load up BattleBlock Theater and head towards an online area.
Reminder: If you own Alien Hominid HD on Xbox 360, then you will automatically unlock the Alien in BattleBlock Theater once you’ve received an achievement in both games. This is forever-ever!
*We are also unlocking Alien Hominid in Steam for a limited time only. You should receive Alien Hominid when you load up BattleBlock Theater!
Note: We are going to keep last week’s Arena Feature up next weekend as well, so there will not be any update on August 28th. We’ll be at PAX Prime with some big Behemoth announcements. Thanks for your understanding! xoxo
PAX Prime 2015 is now a week away and we’re shipping off a whole lotta merch to Seattle for our gift shop at Booth 3003! In addition to our usual array of keychains, posters, and select apparel, we have some new items that are making their way to PAX Prime for the first time ever:
5 new Pinny Arcade pins! This is also our Series 5 set of pins!
We’re joining in on the collectible madness known as Pinny Arcade. Each participating exhibitor has their own style of releasing pins out into the PAX world. Our tradition is to sell our pins blindboxed in our capsule machines! We call them the CHONKU CHONKU machines because that’s the Japanese onomatopoeia for the crank as you spin the knob on the machine.
All Pinny Arcade pins that are sold at PAX are set at $10. You’ll be able to purchase a coin from one of our staff standing next to our Chonku Chonku machines (cash only) or at our gift shop (cash & credit accepted).
We’re also bringing back a super limited quantity of pins from Series 1, Series 2, and Series 3–all combined in one Chonku Chonku machine. Series 4 pins will be in a separate machine on their own.
So I know we’re supposed to love all our unit types equally–like children–but I’m just going to come out and say it: the Pit People robot is one of my favorite units to use! First, it’s a robot. That already gains it a terabyte worth of storage in my heart. Second thru fifth, here are some more reasons to love this electrical fighter:
This isn’t the first time this has happened! Our first victim was found on the Theater steps just a couple weeks ago…just lying around grumbling something about new Arena Features in BattleBlock Theater. Today, we’ve found yet another one moping about the hallways and singing praises of community playlists!
For a limited time only, you’ll be able to unlock Steamroll Victim #2 just by loading up BattleBlock Theater and heading towards an online area.
And while you’re in there anyway, you should check out the playlists that this guy has been lauding:
