This week we’ve put a couple of things on pause for different reasons. We wanted to keep you up to date and keep you in the know.
Arena Features – Community Playlists on Pause
Since we’re doing an Arena Playlist Creation Contest that runs until August, we’ve decided to bring back Arena Features “FightForLove” (in XBLA) and “FightForOurLove” (in Steam) in BattleBlock Theater. These are playlists created by our level designers at The Behemoth. We’re giving our community members a chance to create a new playlist to submit and not worry about the rule that excludes any previously Featured community playlist from being submitted. Arena Features will return to highlighting new community playlists after the Contests ends on August 15th.
Trading and Selling Special Unlocks in Steam on Pause
(for up to two weeks at a time)
We will be delaying the ability to sell and trade newly released special unlocks for up to two weeks after release–depending on how long that unlock is available. The prisoner will still be available to unlock as usual and will be present in your inventory. However, you will not be able to sell or trade them until they are rotated out and new prisoners are released. This will help to minimize the creation of duplicates within the market at this time. Big thanks to the Steam Community for the recommendation!
This new policy will start with this week’s special prisoner unlocks. It does not affect special prisoners that were previously released.
Speaking of special prisoner unlocks, we’ve got two of them for you this week and all you need to do is log in! Load up your full version of BattleBlock Theater XBLA or Steam to get Donuts and Troll. It’s a wonderfully delicious combination if we do say so ourselves!
For those of you who may not know, the Troll character was originally co-starring in our 2nd game, Castle Crashers!. This same troll was featured in a Throwback Thursday reveal of our original gameplay, which was posted yesterday:
