We take a look at the new Lego Worlds game on STEAM Early Access. This takes a Minecraft style open world environment and turns brick builders loose.
Hot on the heels of LEGO Dimensions comes another long expected innovation from the house of brick, LEGO Minecraft. Or as it will be called LEGO Worlds.
Once generated, as with Minecraft, you are free to manipulate and dynamically populate with LEGO to your hearts content. As players progress and explore each World they can unlock new themes and abilities ranging from cowboys and giraffes to vampires and polar bears, to steamrollers, race cars, and colossal digging machines!
A range of environment shaping tools enable colossal building tasks to be achieved. Raise terrain to create huge mountains or piece together intricate constructions brick-by-brick.
Future features have been listed as Underground Cave Networks, More Biomes, Pre-Generated Towns, Red Brick Extras, liquid behaviors, Cut/Copy/Paste chunks of landscape and Underwater Gameplay.
This is another interesting move from LEGO, Warner and TT Games and time will tell whether it can make in roads to the Minecraft obsession.
