Plastic adventurers and would-be engineers have something to look forward to this October, when LEGO Universe snap-clicks its way onto store shelves. No fewer than four new trailers and ten new screenshots have been released to help get folks excited.
Developed by The LEGO Group, LEGO Universe enters the massively multiplayer online arena with a robust suite of tools players can use to build to their heart's desires, alongside the more standard questing and combat. The new screenshots above and the trailers below give a good idea of what's in store.
On October 12, LEGO fans ("Founders") will be able to purchase the game exclusively from official LEGO outlets (LEGO Stores, LEGO Online Shop, and LEGOLAND). LEGO Universe will launch via all other standard retail channels on October 26.
All four trailers follow.
I am beta testing this game and it is actually really cool. I am very sorry to see that they are going to charge for this game though. I wont be paying to play that is for sure.
I am beta testing as well, and while the gameplay they have is worth it, it is about 6 hours worth. The "content" is the ability to build anything with the pieces find in the personal land places.
If they had 40-ish hours of content, I'd buy it. I just like the environment they have created.
