Funcom’s Lego MMO Minifigures Online is launching at the end of the month on June 29th, and is adopting a buy-to-play structure for its final big release. The game’s big newly announced feature is that the online world is fully cross platform, allowing PC players to play alongside mobile users.
Lego Minifigures Online had a limited-time run as a free-to-play game on PC, but the new version will be pay-to-play, in a similar manner to games like Guild Wars 2. The game will cost £24.99, which will give full and unlimited access to the whole game and its many themed worlds.
The last few months have seen Funcom prepare for the new launch, adding new features such as playable events, voice acting, and cinematics.
“This really is the definitive version of LEGO Minifigures Online and we are very much looking forward to opening the servers for players to experience it,” said Funcom CEO Rui Casais. “Not only will it feel like a fresh, new experience for those who have played the earlier free-to-play PC version, there is also so much potential unlocked now that you can play with each other across platforms on a broad range of devices. Maybe you are playing on an iPhone while your friend is on an Android tablet and your dad is on a high-powered PC; you’ll still play together in the same persistent online world, along with thousands of other LEGO fans from all over the globe.”
Lego Minigures Online will be available on PC, Mac, and Linux on June 29th, and will be available from Steam of the Minigures Online website.
