The LEGO Group announces that development is complete on LEGO Universe
, so the PC and Mac editions of the LEGO MMORPG are now officially gold and on track for release this fall; specifically October 26 in North America. The announcement oddly states the game "has surpassed quality standards," though the closed beta test is apparently continuing for now. They also announce the game is being shown off this weekend at PAX 2010 at the Gazillion booth, inviting attendees to try it firsthand, chat with the developers, and snag some special-edition giveaways. Here are some new LEGO Universe screenshots from PAX
, and here's more of the gold announcement:
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.
