LEGO Game Released as a Direct Competitor to Minecraft
Rikki Wright / 2 years ago
LEGO is the stuff of dreams and nightmares all rolled into one. On the one hand, it is amazingly satisfying to build an amazing creation out of just a pile of blocks; on the other hand, stepping on that missing 1×1 block hurts a lot.
Well, now LEGO has released a new open-world, sandbox game called LEGO worlds. This will be a rich massive landscape made out of, you guessed it, LEGO. This is set to be an almost direct competitor to Minecraft. The game will offer what we have come to expect from LEGO, both on and off-screen. You can just roam the landscape or change it yourself in the editor. There will be a range of real-world sets available to the player; most will likely be free, but expect some in-game purchases.
You can currently purchase the game through Steam Early Access program for $17. I recently purchased Minecraft to see what all the fuss is about and now I think I will be buying this….for work. Could this be a new method to sell more LEGO sets? Maybe the creators could track creations and create actual sets based off downloads? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
