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.
