Is Roblox free?

Group of Roblox players exploring.

It’s hard to overstate the massive appeal of Roblox. Millions of players from around the world are hooked on this creation tool that lets players experience thousands of games made by others, or start making games for themselves to share with the world. It has evolved beyond being just a game and into a platform rivaling Fortnite. There are plenty of games out there that say they’re free only to push players to spend real money on in-game items or currencies. If you want to know if there’s a cost of entry to Roblox, or if you will need to spend any money once you’re playing, we can break it all down for you.

Is Roblox free?

Yes, downloading and playing Roblox won’t cost you a single cent. However, there is a special currency in the game you do need to pay for called Robux, which can be used in each experience to enhance your character’s avatar or unlock special abilities. What you get and how much you will need to spend will vary from game to game. The cost of Robux, however, is always the same. You can buy them in packages on the Roblox site for the following rates:

400 Robux: $5

800 Robux: $10

1,700 Robux: $20

4,500 Robux: $50

10,000 Robux: $100

22,500 Robux: $200

You can also choose to subscribe to Roblox premium for either $5, $10, or $20 per month to get 450, 1,000, or 2,200 Robux every month, respectively, along with a few other perks.

Robux can also be won or earned by playing games, but typically in small amounts. You can also earn real money yourself in Roblox if you create a game and people spend Robux in it. Roblox will give creators a small cut of all the Robux spent in their games as real cash.

Stardew Valley gift guide: the best gifts for every villager
A wedding in Stardew Valley.

The residents of Pelican Town are friendly enough when you begin a new farming adventure in Stardew Valley, but you need to do some work to really earn their affection.

You have an individual affection level with each that can be raised primarily in two ways: doing quests for them and giving them gifts. The latter option is far faster and more efficient, but also riskier. Unlike some other games, each character in Stardew Valley has gifts they like and love but also feel nothing for as well as dislike or hate. Giving a bad gift to a character you're hoping to romance will only set you back. Let's open our journals and make sure we know the best gifts for each villager in town.

Cyberpunk 2077 cheat codes: money, weapons, and more
A hacker uses a computer in Cyberpunk 2077.

From Grand Theft Auto 5 to Skyrim, the longevity of open-world games usually relies on cheats, where players can input commands to unlock items, break the boundaries of the game, quickly travel across the map, and more. Cyberpunk 2077 is no different, but CD Projekt Red didn't put a traditional cheat system in the game. Thankfully, the PC modding community has been hard at work getting Cyberpunk 2077 cheat codes up and running.

In the guide, we're going to show you how to use cheat codes in Cyberpunk 2077, as well as some of the best cheats in the game. Cheats are not supported in any official capacity, and you'll need to use a mod to unlock them, so proceed at your own risk. We recommend backing up your save data just in case something becomes corrupted with future updates. Some commands may break other things in the game, too, though we didn't run into any problems during testing.
