While LEGO Dimensions has focused on swallowing up every pop-culture franchise it can get its hands on, LEGO Worlds has taken a different approach to the brick-building world: that is to say, actual brick-building.
LEGO Worlds drops you in a procedurally generated LEGO world and lets players build and customize however they want; just don’t call it a clone of Minecraft. The game has been available on Steam Early Access since last year, but the final product will have a variety of missions like retrieving a king’s sword and fending off a horde of zombies with a farmer. You’ll also be able to play online cooperatively and competitively.
Jonathan Smith, Head of Production at developer TT Games, said in a press release:
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. Whether customizing 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.
David Haddad, President of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, said:
LEGO Worlds expands our LEGO videogame franchise with a new experience that embodies all the fun of physical LEGO brick building. TT Games has created an expansive, digital universe that combines unlimited creativity with the LEGO humor that fans love.
Niels Jørgensen, Vice President of Digital Games for The LEGO Group, said:
LEGO Worlds brings the very essence of LEGO play – building – to the digital world, more than ever before. 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.
PlayStation 4 players will get a timed exclusive with the LEGO Agents DLC pack, which includes characters, vehicles, weapons and more from LEGO’s spy-themed line of sets.
LEGO Worlds comes out on Feb. 21, 2017, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam. You can watch the new trailer embedded below.
