Minecraft-like Lego Worlds is launching this week for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It’s due to arrive later this year on Nintendo Switch, though no release date has been given.
Note that the price for Lego Worlds on PC during Steam Early Access was a discounted $14.99. The full version is now $29.99.
Lego Worlds is developed by TT Games, veterans of the many previous Lego titles. Lego Worlds has the basic DNA of those games as you control a mini-fig in a 3D world built out of Lego bricks. It’s designed to emulate Minecraft’s gameplay of exploring randomized worlds and leaving your mark upon them. The world can be built brick-by-brick or by dropping pre-built Lego structures. You can also paint and reshape the landscape directly.
Player characters are fully customizable with the zany variety of mini-figures that Lego toys have become known for. Lego Worlds also features a myriad of vehicles and mounts with which to find, place, and ride, including cars, ostriches, helicopters, dragons, and hot air balloons.
Lego Worlds also features local split-screen and online multiplayer. You can watch the multiplayer trailer below.
There’s currently a bit of a kerfuffle with the 1.0 release. The big update from Early Access now gates the larger worlds and more sandbox gameplay with requiring Gold Bricks. Now you’ll need to complete quests and earn bricks to gain access to bigger worlds.
Lego Worlds has been available through Steam Early Access for quite some time. I wrote a preview of Lego Worlds when it was first available nearly two years ago.
