Lego Online GameWritten by Simon Barker on February 3, 2008 · Filed under Gadget Gift Ideas, Games
A new Lego online game is in the works called ‘Lego Universe’, its going be an MMO game, so think World of Warcraft style gameplay all set in a world of Lego!
In recent years we’ve seen the Lego Star Wars games re-create all 6 episodes of the Star Wars films, a Lego Indiana Jones game and there’s also now a Lego Batman game in the works, but with this Lego online game you’ll be able to create your own Lego characters and join a world-wide set of players in Lego Universe.
I’m guessing that this will be primarily a children’s game, but as a fan of Lego when I was a kid and liked playing Lego Star Wars, I’ll definitely be interested to see how development progresses on this game.
You can get an idea of what it might look like by watching the Lego Universe game trailer below:
You can find the latest news and further details about the game by taking a look at the Lego Universe website and also a preview article has been written over at Wired which also includes some conceptual artwork.
The Lego online game is scheduled to be released in the 4th quarter of 2008, which should tie in nicely with the Christmas toy market – what’s the betting they’ll be lots more Lego toys sold in conjunction with this?
Were you a fan of Lego as a kid? Are you still? I was surprised to see all the Lego you can buy now at the Lego Shop.
What did you think to the Lego Star Wars games? Do you think this Lego Universe game will work as a massively multiplayer online game?
