Yep, you heard correctly, Block Empires now has pets! These cute little guys will follow you around wherever you go! You can even name them whatever you want!
Pet's are a new feature to Block Empires that will be used to celebrate upcoming server events. For example, for Valentines we'd have a baby red sheep pet, or St. Patricks day we'd have a green baby sheep. And when the event/holiday is over you'll no longer be able to purchase it until the next time it's available, if ever. Once you've purchased a pet, you'll have access to that pet forever!
To celebrate the release of Block Empires Alpha we are happy to release to you the Baby Slime Pet. This pet will only be available for purchase during BE Alpha, when Alpha is over (July 1), it will no longer be able to be purchased. So, when Alpha is over, you'll be the only one that has that pet, along with other people who have purchased it in the Alpha stage. The Baby Slime Pet will only ever be available at this time, so this is your only chance to get it!
Finally, the fifth race appears, you have for a long time wondered what this race would be or if it would come at all but here it is.
Someone said it would be an underwater race and some said it will be something else. Well it is something else, I present to you:
The harpies are a proud race that came with the floating islands to block empires in the latest storm, their capital city "Boreads" is located high up in the sky only available to the harpies themselves.
(more story available on release)
What is a harpy you may wonder? Well harpies are a mythology creature from the ancient greece,
½ men, ½ bird. And you may also wonder: "harpies have wings, how can they make them in minecraft?"
Yes, well an exellent question, you see we have recently developed a new plugin called "wingocraft" it allows us to place basic wings on a minecraft player working a bit like a cape.
(We plan to have enderdragon wings in the future)
Harpies will be able to fly anywhere at anytime, there is no cooldown on their racial passive skill:"Wings" , it works like creative flying but you are slowly falling down so you can't stay AFK in the air.
