LEGO Minifigures Online Announced

Funcom has made the announcement they teased for today of LEGO Minifigures Online, an upcoming multiplayer game based on the little folk lucky enough to ride in your LEGO creations. The game is due next year for several platforms, including two ways to play it on Windows PCs, as a standalone client, or as a web-based version. Here's a reveal trailer, here are some screenshots, and here's how this is to work:

Oslo, Norway August 29th, 2013 Get ready! The minifigures are coming! Funcom is excited to finally unveil details, screenshots and the first ever trailer for its upcoming 'LEGO Minifigures Online' game to LEGO fans and gaming enthusiasts across the world. Based on the hugely successful LEGO Minifigures brand, 'LEGO Minifigures Online' brings the small, colorful characters to life in their own adventure-filled online world during the second half of 2014.

While primarily geared towards kids, 'LEGO Minifigures Online' will deliver both gameplay depth and loads of that crazy fun which makes everything LEGO such a universally enjoyable pastime among the young at heart everywhere -- whether they are ten, thirty or fifty years old!

Just think about it: most of us have fond memories of LEGO bricks in all the colors of the rainbow strewn about our childhood bedroom floor. These plastic bricks were and still are the building blocks of the worlds that we created from our very own imagination. While these are but childhood memories for some, many of us still lose ourselves in imaginary worlds; some made up by LEGO bricks, others by bits and bytes.

In 'LEGO Minifigures Online' you once again get to visit Pirate World, Space World, Medieval World and many others, as you play together with thousands of other players while collecting minifigures and developing their unique and powerful abilities. Smash, build and collect -- thousands of exciting adventures are just a brick away in 'LEGO Minifigures Online'!

"We could not be more excited to be working with LEGO on such a great franchise. I think you could even say the team has been training to make this game since we were little kids," says Lawrence Poe, Executive Producer on 'LEGO Minifigures Online'. "That excitement carries over into everything we do, and we're throwing every ounce of our passion and creativity into the game. We are one hundred percent focused on delivering the fun, safe, quality experience that people expect when they think of LEGO minifigures."

'LEGO Minifigures Online' will launch on PC, iOS and Android during the second half of 2014. In addition to being available as a full-fledged, DirectX 11 PC client, the game will also be playable in a browser through new technology being developed by Funcom for its proprietary DreamWorld platform.

Funcom, just stop already. Online games aren't your thing.

"Nobody wants to be nobody in America. Ed is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is its own virtue.
