LEGO Worlds may have been available on Steam Early Access since last year, but today Warner Bros are upping their game and announcing that it’ll be coming to both Xbox One and PS4 as well.
Launching in the UK come 24th Feb 2017, LEGO Worlds is the ultimate brick building experience, giving players the chance to create not just anything imaginable, but their own adventures as well. With hidden treasures raging from the fun to the fantastical, worlds will come to life with a variety of vehicles and creatures – giraffe riding cowboy anyone?
You’ll be able to become a Master Builder by helping LEGO characters along the way – find a sword for a king, protect a farmer from a zombie invasion, or build a home for a caveman. Environments and creations are brought to life in any way fans can imagine, either by building brick by brick, placing down enormous prebuilt LEGO® structures, or by using wondrous tools that let you paint and shape the landscape.
LEGO Worlds’ online multiplayer functionality will also allow players to explore each other’s worlds together, create together, and engage in cooperative and competitive play experiences that players can build themselves.
“In LEGO® Worlds, players will go on an exciting journey to become a Master Builder, in an open-world made completely of LEGO®-built environments,” said Jonathan Smith, Head of Production, TT Games. “Whether customising characters, exploring in vehicles, building structures, or discovering an expansive range of items, characters and creatures throughout the worlds, there’s the freedom to create anything imaginable.”
“LEGO® Worlds expands our LEGO® videogame franchise with a new experience that embodies all the fun of physical LEGO® brick building,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “TT Games has created an expansive, digital universe that combines unlimited creativity with the LEGO® humour that fans love.”
“LEGO® Worlds brings the very essence of LEGO® play – building – to the digital world, more than ever before,” said Niels Jørgensen, Vice President, Digital Games for The LEGO® Group. “We are excited to bring our physical and digital play models closer together and know it will resonate with our core audience – and engage new ones. We believe LEGO® Worlds has the potential to inspire and develop the builders of tomorrow through its experience of open-ended creative play.”
