Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has sent over a press release regarding the upcoming LEGO Worlds launch pricing for the game. LEGO Worlds will be launching physically and digitally on February 21, 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and STEAM for $24.99. Currently, the game is still available on STEAM Early Access for $14.99 and if you have it already, you’ll be upgraded to the full game at no charge so if you’re thinking of getting it, I would suggest getting it sooner than later.
WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES
LAUNCH PRICING AND PRE-ORDERS FOR
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced today that LEGO® Worlds, the digital LEGO brick building experience where players can explore, discover and create together, will commercially launch on February 21, 2017 at a suggested retail price of $24.99 for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and STEAM.
Developed by TT Games and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, LEGO Worlds is available now for pre-order in both physical and digital formats for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A special LEGO Agents DLC pack, featuring new characters, vehicles, weapons and more from the Agents range of play materials, will be available exclusively on PlayStation 4 for a limited time.
LEGO Worlds, currently in STEAM Early Access until launch, remains available for purchase at the introductory price of $14.99. Gamers that purchase LEGO Worlds during Early Access can update to the final version with all of the new, upcoming features at no additional cost.
In LEGO Worlds, players uncover hidden treasures in environments that range from fun to the fantastical, where worlds come to life with a dizzying variety of vehicles and creatures – from cowboys riding giraffes and vampires scaring Yetis, to steamrollers, racing cars and colossal digging machines. Gamers can embark on a quest to become a Master Builder by helping other LEGO characters along the way – find a sword for a king, protect a farmer from a zombie invasion, or build a home for a caveman. Environments and creations are brought to life in any way fans can imagine, either by building brick by brick, placing down enormous prebuilt LEGO structures, or by using wondrous tools that let you paint and shape the landscape. LEGO Worlds’ online multiplayer functionality allows players to explore each other’s worlds together, create together, and engage in cooperative and competitive play experiences that players can build themselves.
It seems that today is a press release day for LEGO. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has sent over a press release announcing that LEGO Worlds will be coming to PlayStation 4, XBox One, and STEAM on February 21, 2017. If you didn’t know, LEGO Worlds is currently on STEAM Early Access but the full release will be available in a few months.

If you purchased the LEGO Dimensions Adventure Time Marceline Fun Pack (71285) from Toys R Us and intend to use her in the game, you may want to return it or contact LEGO Dimensions Support as there has been reports of widespread issues with the NFC chip. Basically, the tags for Marceline herself are coming up empty and it contains no data for the system to detect. I’m hearing that this issue is only affecting North America and the ones in the UK seem to be fine.
As far as I know, TT Games has not acknowledged the issue publicly but Toys R Us has issued a stop sale on the Fun Packs and has started pulling them from the floor. The link for the TRU product page has also been taken down. If you see them available for purchase, I suggest don’t buy it until the issue is fixed. For those who just collect the minifigures and have no interest in playing the LEGO Dimensions itself, that doesn’t really matter but for those who do, I suggest contacting support in the link above to see about getting a replacement tag.
WB Games has announced that LEGO City: Undercover will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC/Steam in Spring 2017. If you remember, LEGO City: Undercover lets you take control of Chase McCain in sort of a toned down Grand Theft Auto-style game that was released for the Nintendo Wii U back in 2013.
If you’re a LEGO City collector, there was a Chase McCain Minifigure Polybag (5000281) that was released with pre-orders of the game and he was eventually released in the High Speed Chase (60007) and will be coming back again in 2017 with the High-Speed Chase (60138).
The Wave 7 LEGO Dimensions expansion packs are now available for purchase on Amazon. The only pack not listed on Amazon is the Adventure Time Marceline Fun Pack (71285) which is a Toys R Us exclusive pack.

Here’s something interesting coming out of Twitter earlier today. LEGO Dimensions designer/writer Joe Moore tweeted out an image of the Red Dwarf area which was found in the Fantastic Beasts Story Pack (71253). As we know, Red Dwarf isn’t an official LEGO license yet, as far was we know, however there was a Red Dwarf project that just hit 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas just last week.
Does this actually we’ll be getting a Red Dwarf expansion pack in the future? Not necessarily. If you remember from last year, there were stages that included the Jetsons and Flintstones but there weren’t any physical sets that came out of that so this could just be an easter egg like the previous ones.
Last month I reported that it was rumored the LEGO Dimensions Green Arrow (71342) polybag would be given out at GameStop during Black Friday 2016. I can now confirm from their Black Friday ad posted on BFAds.net that Green Arrow will indeed be given away with the purchase of any LEGO Dimensions product.
Some of their other promotions during Black Friday include the price of the Starter Packs dropping down to $39.99. The Team Packs will be priced at $14.99 while the Level Packs will be $19.99 each.
