Lego Universe – Multiplayer Online Brick Building
Next year will see the launch of a multiplayer online game called Lego Universe, in which players will be able to create online Lego versions of themselves and interact with each other.
“We want to make the connection between digital play and physical play,” Mark William Hansen who is in charge of Lego Universe told Reuters.
“The physical experience is our core, the digital experience will never replace the physical experience, but it’s a nice add-on.”
Lego fans will actually be able to order a real version of the online Lego avatar they create of themselves – fantastic!
TheÂ gameÂ willÂ inititially launch as a PC gameÂ that will be available to buy in stores as well as aÂ download, but rumour has it that it will also come to other platforms.
Hansen added that the game will operate as a pay-as-you-go subscription service at a “competitive price” but didn’t reveal how much and players will be able to buy bricks (there possibly may be as many as 6000 types of brick to pick from!) to build their world; and the more you play, the more virtual cash you earn.
