Pre-Season 9 Release

Season 9 is coming soon! The Battlepass is still available and will be throughout the pre-season. Now is your last chance to get it completed!

💻 UI Update
We have completely redesigned our UI. We've been working on this update for the past few months to create a design that both looks good and is highly accessible for all of our players to enjoy. We've learned a lot from our previous attempts and have taken all the best features and more to combine them into our new style. We hope you'll enjoy it! As always, we'll be looking out for feedback from our community to continuously improve our new UI. A list of the most important changes are below:
• All of our games have new keyarts
• Creating and joining private games can now be achieved from the same menu in the “Choose a Game” selector menu, and also the “PvP & Casual Games” menu by pressing the “Private Games” button
• All vanity menus now have a built-in search bar. You can search for an item's name or for all items of a rarity, i.e. “Rare” or “Epic”.
• The seasonal battlepass menu has been modified to make the name of levels and prestiges more readable.
• The “Map Voting” menu has been redesigned, and all maps now have bigger screenshots to show what they are more easily. Power Voting can still be used in the second section of the menu.

🛡️ Armor Update
We are moving away from our tiered armour system and incorporating the vanilla armour into our combat games! Instead of redeeming virtual armour, you can now find “Armour Kits” which can be used to give yourself a full set of either Leather, Chain, Iron, Diamond or Netherite armour. The majority of our Avatars are fully compatible; however, there’s a small number that unfortunately don’t. These Avatars can still be used on Galaxite, however when equipping armour, they will be replaced by your default Minecraft skin. A full list of affected Avatars can be found on our Wiki.

❤️ Main Hub
• The “Challenges” menu has been redesigned to show expiration times in a more readable format.
• Clicking an unhatched pet no longer immediately hatches it. Now it opens a new menu to either hatch or gift the pet to another player.
• The “My Profile” menu has had a complete overhaul and has been redesigned to prioritise information and reduce the number of clicks required to use all of its functionality. The same menu can now be accessed in all game lobbies, allowing you to access your vanity, stats, achievements & battlepasses when waiting for a game to start.
• A new menu named “All Items” can be accessed from the “My Profile” menu, which lets you access all types of vanity from all games directly in one menu.
• The former “Loadouts & Coins” menu has been renamed to “Game Shops”, and has become easier to access perks, shops, and convert currencies to gems and experience.

🕗 Chronos: Battle Royale
• The shops in Chronos have been redesigned! The different categories are listed at the top of the menu at all times, and you can switch between them with one click. The first screen will also recommend 4 items that it thinks may be useful to you.
• The 5 armour tiers have been replaced with vanilla armour, but the protection levels have remained the same.
• When using the “Sparrow” perk, you will have an Elytra instead of a chestplate, but it does not affect the amount of damage you take.
• When your glider is activated, your armour will be removed, but it does not affect the amount of damage you take and will be applied again after landing.

🪐 Core Wars
• The shops in Core Wars have been redesigned! The different categories are listed at the top of the menu at all times and you can switch between them with one click. The first screen will also recommend 4 items that it thinks may be useful to you.
• Armour has been moved into the “Item Shop” from the “Upgrade Shop”
• The number of ores you have can be found at the bottom of the shop menus.
• The 3 armour tiers have been replaced with vanilla armour but the protection levels have remained the same.
• The “Map Voting” menu in Core Wars now shows only 4 unlocked maps, consistent with other games.
• The Core Wars Push LTM has been removed, we hope you all enjoyed it!

⚔️ Rush
• The 5 armour tiers have been replaced with vanilla armour, but the protection levels have remained the same.
• When your glider is activated, your armour will be removed, but it does not affect the amount of damage you take and will be applied again after landing.

🎊 Playground
• Held swords and armour are now invisible when the player has Invisibility in KitPvP

🦘 Parkour Builders
• Major performance improvements have been made to Parkour Builders to solve the problems of timers freezing and the overall impact on gameplay.
• Unpurchased mechanics can now be purchased directly from the menu when building a parkour.
• Powerups can now give multiple effects that have different levels and durations. Existing powerups have been automatically upgraded to this new system.
• You can now set a powerup's duration to be between 1 second and 5 minutes.
• You can now play your own published parkours by clicking on them in the “Build your own parkour” menu.
• You can now search through your favourited parkours and your parkour history.
• Newly created parkours no longer get set to nighttime when updating its settings. This will not fix the issue for parkours that have already been made. Players can still set the time back to day manually.

🏎️ Hyper Racers
• The volume settings in the “Extra Things” menu no longer reset after 7 days.

⭐ New ELITE Items
• Rainbow Chicken Kill Bits
• Kit Bits Kill Bits
