Many people have been waiting for this piece of news for a long time now. The Closed Beta for LEGO Minifigures Online ended a few days ago which meant that Funcom was ready to roll out the Open Beta very soon and that day is today. You can now go in and try out LEGO Minifigures Online by clicking “Play Now!” All you have to have is your LEGOID to start playing.
A few weeks ago, I was invited to take part of the Closed Beta and my first impressions were, “This may work.” It’s basically your standard MMO where you level up your character and upgrade your skills as you progress in the game. Throughout the beta, you will be able to test out various charcters in a couple of worlds and provide feedback to the developers.
The game is based on the popular LEGO Collectible Minifigures theme and Funcom is hoping that they will translate into a great gaming experience as well. Check out the official Funcom press release below.
Funcom today launched the Open Beta for LEGO Minifigures Online. This is the final beta phase before the game launches later this fall.
The game is currently available in English for the Windows PC in select markets. During Open Beta, Funcom will introduce localized versions of the game in German, French and Spanish, and a tablet version of the game will also be made available later. Throughout the Open Beta process, gameplay, content and the business model will be balanced, expanded and improved based on player feedback and analysis of available data. LEGO Minifigures Online is a free-to-play game with optional in-game transactions, and it should be expected that the game will evolve and grow over time.
LEGO Minifigures Online is based on the hugely popular Minifigures series of collectible toys. Players get to collect tons of Minifigures, each with their own personality and set of abilities, and take them out on
great adventures through colorful worlds such as Pirate World, Space World and Medieval World. Everything takes place online, and thousands of
players can join each other on exciting adventures and share the fun together.
