It’s news time. Let’s roll.
The Dedicated Update, LIVE on Apple Arcade!
After a long and patience-filled waiting period… The Dedicated Update is here! We couldn’t be more excited for this update to land on Apple Arcade!
Highlights of the Dedicated Update:
Kickoff with the new Soccer mode in 7 different arenas!
Dedicated multiplayer servers make the game smoother than ever!
58 Brand new cosmetic items to unlock in our rebalanced economy.
We’ve added 2 new standard multiplayer maps, and revamped 2 existing maps!
The Dedicated Update is available NOW on Apple Arcade!
It’s been a long time since we first mentioned Marble It Up: Mayhem! on consoles.
So here’s where we are:
Not only is Mayhem! coming, but we’ve also enlisted and invested in help to develop the Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and PlayStation versions at the highest quality possible.
This work has gone on for the past few months – allowing us to focus on the Dedicated Update while still making progress toward the console ports!
With the ports progressing, we’ll be able to focus on Steam as the venue for beta testing, player feedback, quick iteration times, and overall refinements that we can then bring to the in-progress console builds.
As you might have guessed, we’re not in a spot to be giving a release date – however, we are in a spot to be discussing release windows internally. Which is very exciting for us, and I hope reassuring for you!
The tradeoff for this longer-than-expected journey is an assembly of stellar content beyond what we initially hoped – and we can’t wait for everyone to play it with us.
(and now, the rest of the week’s round-up!)
