Funcom announced today the launch of the LEGO Minifigures Online website. With this launch, fans can learn more about the game without needing access to the beta testing. A new video has also launched in conjunction with the new site.
The new ‘This is LEGO Minifigures Online’ video offers a narrated tour of some of the exciting things fans will be able to do and places they can visit when the game launches next year. The video also showcases brand new, never-before-seen content such as the Pirate World, the Treasure Island dungeon and the terrifying Crikey the Kraken!
“We have an amazing cast of characters and worlds in LEGO Minifigures Online, and the new video and website are a great opportunity for everyone to discover that,” says Executive Producer Lawrence Poe. “This is a game with tremendous amount of variety and there is just so much to see and experience here. Our goal is to combine accessibility with depth to make sure we make a LEGO Minifigures game that can appeal to kids of all ages.”
Visitors to the website can go even more in-depth and get a detailed look at the specific minifigures, and learn more about their abilities and their personalities. LEGO Minifigures Online is set to release with almost one hundred different minifigures, and the website will reveal more details in the coming months.
LEGO Minifigures Online is based on the hugely popular LEGO Minifigures collection. The minifigures are the charming characters that inhabit LEGO creations, whether it’s on a childhood bedroom floor or inside a virtual world, and over 340 million of them were sold in 2012 alone. In Funcom’s upcoming online game, the player must collect these minifigures, discover their unique abilities and bring them out on grand adventures through wonderful worlds of bricks and pixels together with thousands of other players from all over the world.
Those interested in joining the Closed Beta for LEGO Minifigures Online can register a user account on the official website. More testers will be invited to join throughout development.
