Roll20 Announces Major Content Updates at Roll20Con 2020

Roll20 Announces Major Content Updates at Roll20Con 2020

At the fifth annual Roll20Con today, Roll20 announced a virtual tabletop full of new content. Burn Bryte, Roll20’s original online TTRPG, has two new adventures (one is free!) available now, plus a new bestiary that expands on the imaginative Olaxis Galaxy. The Roll20 user interface is getting a navigation-friendly overhaul, and new scheduling updates will make it easier than ever to connect with other players. New games are inbound, like Alien, Warhammer Fantasy, Esper Genesis, Companion’s Tale, and more, along with updates and expansions for fan-favorites like D&D, CoC, Pathfinder, Starfinder and more.

Now through Sunday (October 25), fans can grab exclusive Roll20Con giveaways and rewards, as Roll20 matches donations to Code2040 to help end racial discrimination in tech.

“At Roll20, we are constantly striving to lower the barriers of entry - both for the people who play games and for the people who bring these games into our world,” said Emily Floyd, Director of Licensing at Roll20. “With its campaign for Code2040 and its engagement across our virtual tabletop on so many levels, Roll20Con is a celebration of that goal. I'm proud to say our announcements reflect that work as well, and we are thrilled to share with our community everything that's in store for them in the months to come."
