Lego Worlds looks like Minecraft with virtual bricks

— 11:18 AM on June 8, 2015

During last week's deluge of Computex news, I somehow missed that Lego is developing a PC game that looks very similar to Minecraft. Lego Worlds is billed as a "fully open-world, creativity-driven game." It offers procedurally generated worlds filled with virtual bricks, beasts, and building options galore. Check out the trailer:

In an interesting twist, Lego Worlds is already available as part of Steam's Early Access program, and it seems to be off to a promising start, with 89% positive reviews. The current version has terraforming and building tools, rideable creatures and vehicles, and a full day-to-night cycle, among other features. It's a single-player affair for now, but planned features include an online multiplayer mode, additional environments, more minifig options, and lots of pre-built content.

Eager builders can get their feet wet with the early version of Lego Worlds for only $14.99. The price will go up when the full version is released.  A release candidate is scheduled for early 2016, while the final version will probably follow later in the year.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
