LEGO Worlds, TT Games’ answer to Minecraft, is getting an online multiplayer mode. The new functionality will allow two players to explore each other’s worlds, create together, and engage in cooperative and competitive play experiences that players can build themselves. The game is currently still only available for PC via STEAM Early Access, quietly evolving outside of the main LEGO video game spotlight, but this latest announcement would suggest that a lot more support is going into pushing the game out as a full release.
“Building and playing with friends is at the core of LEGO play and we’re excited to bring online multiplayer into LEGO® Worlds,” said Jonathan Smith, Head of Production, TT Games. “The online multiplayer experience offers unlimited possibilities for players to explore one another’s worlds, build and share creations, and just have fun together.”
“We are very pleased to see how LEGO Worlds has grown after a year in Early Access,” Says Niels Jørgensen, Vice President, Digital Games for the LEGO® Group. “It’s a fantastic way to engage with LEGO play digitally, and we are excited for the added social component that online multiplayer will bring to the gaming community.”
LEGO Worlds is an open environment of procedurally-generated worlds made entirely of LEGO bricks where players create anything they can imagine. Entire worlds and creations are brought to life with characters and creatures that interact with each other as well as the player in unexpected ways. From cowboys riding giraffes to vampires scaring polar bears, to steamrollers, racing cars, and colossal digging machines, there are always interesting and exciting ways for players to explore the vast worlds. Go on a quest for a king, protect a farmer from a zombie invasion or build a home for a caveman, there are always new things to uncover as you explore each new world.
The game is available to buy on STEAM for £11.99, though that price is expected to rise when the game does finally exit Early Access.
