LEGO Worlds feels like it just came out of nowhere. Sure, it had early access on Steam, but it kind of just went over my head, and before you could piece two blocks together, it was now fully available to buy. LEGO Worlds is now available on Steam, PlayStation 4 and PC, but will it gain any mindshare over Minecraft?
The launch trailer gives you a good look at what you can expect to be doing in the open-spaced building environment, while Joey Ramone sings ‘What a Wonderful World’ into your ear holes. As a Ramones fan, this brought me a smile to say the least.
“LEGO Worlds is an open environment of procedurally-generated Worlds made entirely of LEGO bricks which you can freely manipulate and dynamically populate with LEGO models. Create anything you can imagine, one brick at a time, or use large-scale landscaping tools to create vast mountain ranges and dot your world with tropical islands. Drop in prefabricated structures to build and customize any world to your liking. Explore using helicopters, dragons, motorbikes or even gorillas and unlock treasures that enhance your gameplay. Watch your creations come to life through characters and creatures that interact with you and each other in unexpected ways. In LEGO Worlds, anything is possible!”
Co-op is also possible, via online and local splitscreen, so you can play it with your family, or friends across the globe.
