It was odd to think of a game like LEGO Universe bedcause I didn’t realize there was an actual universe associated witht the toys. Today it was announced that LEGO Universe is gold.
LEGO® Universe, the first MMOG (massively multiplayer online game) based on the LEGO play experience, will be on display at PAX this weekend! Fans can stop by the Gazillion booth (in hall 4B, booth 3433) from September 3rd – 5th to check out playable live demos, snag special-edition giveaways, and chat with members of the LEGO Universe development team on the show floor.
The LEGO Group is also pleased to announce that LEGO Universe has officially gone gold, meaning the game has surpassed quality standards and is being prepped for mass distribution this fall! Currently in closed beta for PC and Mac, LEGO Universe will ship to North American retail stores on October 26, 2010 with an ESRB rating of “E10+”.
In the upcoming MMOG, the chaotic Maelstrom threatens to destroy all Imagination in the Universe! Only a courageous team of heroes, the Nexus Force, stands in its way, but they desperately need your help. Brand-new screenshots released this week at PAX take you even further into the game’s backstory – the Maelstrom’s darkness is spreading across LEGO Universe as enemy Stromlings battle the Nexus Force in the deepest corners of Forbidden Valley and beyond.
Sounds like a pretty interesting premise for a game. Hopefully it will follow in the line of the previous LEGO games.
