German Version of LEGO® Universe Debuts at GamesCom!
New Assets Introduce Faction Customization and Mini-games
LEGO® Universe, the first MMOG (massively multiplayer online game) based on the LEGO play experience, is on display at GamesCom this week! The German version of the game will make its debut at the show for fans of all ages to play in the Warner Brothers Interactive booth (Hall 08.1, Stand A031). The German version of LEGO Universe will also be available for beta testers later this month.
Two new LEGO Universe gameplay videos are now available. The first highlights customization among the four Factions of the Nexus Force; an alliance formed to defeat the Maelstrom’s dark powers and save Imagination. Players can choose to join the Sentinels, Assembly, Venture League or Paradox. Factions represent a variety of personalities and specialized skills – the rest is up to players’ imagination.
The second new b-roll video introduces several never before seen mini-games in LEGO Universe. From a shooting gallery and fast-paced racing, to pet taming and battle games, there are plenty of distractions at play in the many LEGO worlds. But don’t dawdle too much, the Nexus Force desperately needs your help to defend Imagination when LEGO Universe launches this October.
Finally, three new LEGO Universe video trailers invite viewers to go behind the scenes. Hear from the developers about building and behaviors in LEGO Universe; meet fan and partner, Steve Barker in the World Builder (LUP) video trailer to see fan co-creation in action; and get a sneak peek at kids play testing LEGO Universe in Germany.
