LEGO Minifigures Online
As of the 29th of August, Funcom and the LEGO Group have entered an agreement to start their next big project, LEGO Minifigures Online. Not to be mistaken with LEGO Universe MMO launched in 2010, LEGO Minifigures has been reported to be its own game and nothing to do with LEGO Universe.
This free to play MMOG (massive multiplayer online game) made for PC but also to be available on iOS and Android seems to include all aspects of the LEGO Minifigures world and then some. With everything from a DJ pumping the tunes in Space to a Fireman battling it out with swash-buckling pirates, there is an infinite amount of creation combinations for everyone to enjoy.
Aside from the Minifigures themselves throughout the various worlds, the game becomes more challenging as you come across monsters and bosses, varying difficulty of quests and puzzles with loot to keep an eye out for as well.
Collecting your characters and developing their unique abilities becomes a lot more satisfying as you do it with your friends or even against them. LEGO Minifigures Online is said to include a Player VS Player feature to fight it out with your friends or join forces to defeat your opponent. From all this alone, it sounds like Funcom and the LEGO Group is on to a winner and it’s certainly a step up from LEGO Universe and it’ll be interesting to hear more.
LEGO Minifigures Online sounds like a great experience for anyone of any gaming level and one to definitely keep out an ear for when more news comes around. LEGO Minifigures Online is being launched sometime in 2014 with the release date TBA (to be announced) and RP for Rating Pending.
