It looks like Lego want to up their game, going toe to toe with Minecraft with LEGO Worlds: a sandbox game about building and playing with blocks bricks. It’s just hit Steam Early Access as a beta, and retails for £11.99 if you want to see how it stands to Mojang’s flagship product.
Check out the trailer below to see what all the fuss is about.
As it stands, LEGO Worlds is only a single-player affair, but online multiplayer is promised to be implemented further into development. Other features said to be added are more AI creatures, underwater biomes and procedurally-generated cave networks.
“So much of this game will be about building and sharing and by sharing our plans with the community,” said the game’s Steam page. “We hope to incorporate their feedback and build an experience together that fans of Lego and this genre of video games can enjoy.
“The current plan for LEGO Worlds is to be in Early Access through 2015 at which point we hope to have our full list of features in place. We’ll evaluate a release candidate in early 2016, but we won’t consider the game complete and ready for release until we believe our community feels we have delivered a great game.”
