Where is LEGO Worlds?

It’s been a while since we (LUN) have talked about LEGO worlds, and those of you with good memories would also remember that LEGO worlds was hoped to be launched in early 2016 (We are now ending 2016, it is almost past us.)

LEGO worlds was a game that, in concept, is very similar to what LU was going to be originally. And is certainly similar to a game named Minecraft.

(Please see previous Blog posts for more info. Search LEGO Worlds)

So, Where in the world is LEGO Worlds?  Good question :P.


  Well, Here’s their answer. . .

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The original plan was to finish the “v1” by mid 2016. However, the experience we have had, has been so overwhelmingly positive that we have decided to continue through to 2017. No firm date just yet, but we’ll share more when we can.”

And in another News update:

LEGO Worlds will be leaving Early Access in February 2017


     So I guess you can expect it sometime early next year!
Finally the wait is over. Maybe soon we will get to play it… 😛
That’s all for this news update!

LEGO® Star Wars™: The Force Awakens™

The Newest in LEGO’s videogame franchise. LEGO® Star Wars™: The Force Awakens™  promises to be something more than the Previous games.

Here are some of the Features

http://www.lego.com/en-us/starwars/games/videogame :

 Relive the Blockbuster Action – Blast off into a new and improved LEGO Star Wars experience that takes fans deeper into the new film than any other game, retold through the clever and witty LEGO lens.

Exclusive New Story Levels – Experience untold adventures set before Star Wars: The Force Awakens through exclusive new story levels that takes place between Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and the new film.

Variety of Characters, Vehicles & Locations – Play as all of the heroic characters from the movie, including Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO, and BB-8, as well as Kylo Ren, General Hux and Captain Phasma, while exploring iconic Star Wars locales, such as Jakku and Starkiller Base, and utilizing a multitude of vehicles along the way.

Build… and Rebuild – Through the enhanced “Multi-Builds” system, players must choose from multiple building options – to puzzle solve, or just for fun – all advancing the game in different ways.

Exciting New Blaster Battles – Use your surroundings as cover during intense Blaster Battles and drive back the relentless First Order.

Experience the Galaxy Like Never Before – Experience the thrill of high-speed, action-packed flight gameplay like never before, including arena-based battles and dogfights in space

More “I” in A.I. – Enemy fighters can now build using LEGO bricks to support their fellow Stormtroopers, calling in air support, reinforcements or heavy artillery – taking the fight to the Resistance with the power of LEGO!

________________________

Personally, what I find most interesting is the ‘Build and Rebuild’ ; ‘New blaster battles’ ; and Better AI. (Arguably the only real new features :P)

When referring to the Blaster battles the Walmart Gamecenter magazine said that those battles take ideas from third-person shooters (Such as the use of Cover),  and these battles will feature more prominently compared to the Lightsaber battles of past games. The Enhanced A.I. help make these battles even more interesting.

The Build and Rebuild sounds like a really great idea (Allowing you to ‘Build’ multiple things using the same pile of bricks)

It will release around the 28th of June 2016. On PS4, PS3, PSVITA, Xbox ONE, Xbox 360, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, and PC
