Lego Minifigures Online will release on PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android June 29. Gamers will collectively have access to the same online world across all platforms, allowing for easy matchmaking and the ability to freely switch from mobile to desktop devices.
The newest Lego title is a game for all ages that tasks players with collecting more than 100 Minifigures that come with unique personalities and abilities, to build a team to explore Pirate World, Space World, and other Lego environments.
Next week’s release will have new content for players returning to Lego Minifigures Online, Funcom CEO, Rui Casais said. “Not only will it feel like a fresh, new experience for those who have played the earlier free-to-play PC version, there is also so much potential unlocked now that you can play with each other across platforms on a broad range of devices. Maybe you are playing on an iPhone while your friend is on an Android tablet and your dad is on a high-powered PC; you’ll still play together in the same persistent online world, along with thousands of other LEGO fans from all over the globe.”
Although Funcom ran the PC edition as a free-to-play game, the new versions will not. Lego Minifigures will be available on www.playminifigures.com and Steam for $29.99 and include all content. Mobile versions include the first world and are priced at $4.99. Apple users can purchase additional worlds upon launch, but Android players will have to wait until “later this summer.”

It's gotta be tough to reposition a title from F2P back to retail. Unless there are hats or something
