A '''universe''' is a group of [[place]]s linked together that are designed to constitute a game as a whole. Places in a game are able to communicate with other places in that same game, and place teleportation is used to bring players from one place in a game to another. They also make sure you keep your things, such as EXP, items, gamepasses, etc., if that was what a developer wanted to do. Universes were suggested many years before their announcement, and its launch coincided with the release of [[The ROBLOX 2014 Winter Games]].

Places can be added to a game via the Game Explorer window accessible through Studio's View menu, as shown by the picture to the right.

Game developers can transport players from one place in a game to another using ExplorerImageIndex 70TeleportService. Furthermore, servers in a universe can communicate with each other using ExplorerImageIndex 0MessagingService. Saved data using AssetServiceDataStoreService is also accessible throughout all places in the game.

Places using SavePlaceAsync and CreatePlaceAsync are shown in the "Created Place" menu of the game's Configure page on the website.

As of September 2017, all users are allotted 200 active games. Before, the limit was dependent on the user's membership or previous membership status. The removal of this limitation allows users to create more games and reach a wider audience.
