Realms Plus: July
A whole month of summer fun!
Happy July, friends! Here in Sweden it’s holiday season, so whether it’s the peak of summer for you or the dead of winter, I thought we’d go on a little vacation of our own! Realms Plus is back this month with 19 pieces of content and we’re going to take a holiday and explore them all! No plane tickets, queuing, or sunburn required. Let’s dive in, shall we?
We’re starting off our Realms vacation somewhere very exclusive: Millionare Mansions by Noxcrew! Rock up to your swanky new mansion base in your very own super car, take a dip in your private pool, lounge around the beach or boogie on down at a boat party! You and your friends can even redecorate your mansions to make them your own with custom blocks, models, and textures! Is this a great way to start our vacation? I think so! If anyone needs me, I’ll be at the beach dipping my blocky legs in the water!
Cast your eyes towards the horizon. What’s that in the distance? It’s our next vacation stop, of course! Join me on my voyage to the cutest island ever: Dog Island by Pixel Squared! Here you’ll get to adopt an adorable companion and undertake quests to find new dog breeds. Teach your puppy tricks and level them up as you become the island’s best trainer! As a fan of collet-them-all games, I’m going on a mission to discover all 13 unique dogs, and then bring them back to make the blockiest, barkiest base ever!
Now we’ve visited the beach, let’s head to the mountains on our next stop: Ultimate Redstone Base by Pixelusion! This enormous map is built around beautiful, snowy peaks and has a huge redstone base filled with secret passageways, farms, and activities for you to discover! Ride a cable car all the way up to the top of the mountain, challenge your friends to a car race through the tunnels, take a ride in your private helicopter, or relax in the cinema complex – the choice is yours!
What’s higher than a mountain top? Why, the sky of course! Which is our next destination on this incredible holiday, thanks to Noob vs Pro Skyblock from Dodo Studios! Skyblock maps typically start with you standing on a single dirt block and mining for resources to build yourself a base, but not this one! While you can toggle and play from scratch, you can also choose to live on a luxurious floating sky island, suspended between the clouds, complete with its very own indoor pool and helicopter! Much better than mining a dirt block all day, I reckon. This is a vacation, after all! See you in the pool, friends!
We’ve travelled from beaches to mountains all the way up to the sky, but next we’ll travel through time for a spot of ancient entertainment! In the epic Gladiators by Shapescape, you’ll don your gladiator armor to the sound of a roaring crowd as you take on and defeat fellow soldiers! With each victory you’ll win coins, which will help you upgrade your weapons and armor before facing even more terrifying foes, like hydras and cyclopes! Gather your friends, your courage, and head to the arena – but don’t fear, because I’ll be courageously cheering you on from the stands!
For more role-playing adventures this month, you’ll want to check out Restaurant Sim: Head Chef by Pathway Studios, DragonFire 2: Nations by Spectral Studios and the Cartoon Mobs skin pack from Dig Down Studios!
If that wasn’t enough adrenaline for your vacation, then you’ll love our next destination: Robot Battle Arena by Jigarbov Productions! In this high-octane adventure you’ll battle fierce, mechanical robots in an enormous combat arena. Survive waves of enemies, solve puzzles to upgrade your own robot monsters, and take on huge bosses in this heart-flashing adventure.
Phew! After all that fighting, I think we deserve a breather, and what better way to relax than with a summery picnic. Sure, the wasps usually end up finding me – causing me to run screaming from a jam sandwich or two – but these skins are so summery and cute that I’ve immediately forgotten about my 25 stings! Our final holiday stop is Indie Aesthetic Skins, where you can hang out with your friends in eight new teen skins, and you’ll even get a bonus one thrown in. All you need now is a picnic blanket built from red and white wool, and someone to bake a cake, and your summer Realms picnic will be complete!
