Game-creation platform Roblox is coming to Xbox One on January 27. The platform lets users create their own games, levels, and worlds using the game’s block themed tools, and then share them with others. Roblox will come bundled with 15 new games made using its creation tools upon its Xbox One launch.

And the best part of it all? It will be absolutely free to download. So you can get down to designing your own creations for absolutely free, and playing 15 other, rather good ones, for no cost at all.

“Developing Roblox for the Xbox One was an entirely new and ambitious project,” Roblox software engineer Dan Healy said on the game’s blog. “It’s a game that is unlike anything on the Xbox One and pushes a lot of boundaries that no other titles have ventured into. We worked very closely with Microsoft to make a product that fits into the mission and vision of Roblox as an Imagination Platform.

“As such, Roblox on Xbox is a stronger product than we originally thought we would be able to develop.”

Existing players of Roblox will be able to link their accounts to Xbox; if you don’t have a Roblox account, your Xbox Live account will be used to automatically generate one.

“The architecture that Roblox on Xbox is built with is using Roblox‘s own code, meaning we can easily add new games to the library,” continued Healy. “Right now we have 15 games slated for release date, and we’re working closely with developers to add more in the weeks following release.

“It’s still our goal to have Roblox on Xbox operate in the same fashion as Roblox on all other platforms, where creators can publish their places and games and see them instantly appear on every device. This is just stage one, and we’ll see how Roblox on Xbox performs in 2016.”
