LEGO Universe to be Launched this October
The LEGO Group today announced that LEGO Universe will launch this October in the US, UK and Western Europe. The first MMOG (massively-multiplayer online game) based on the LEGO play experience, LEGO Universe will offer early access to LEGO fans – the “Founders” – starting October 12th, and will officially launch on October 26th.
The Founders release makes LEGO Universe available to LEGO fans before the official launch, with the game sold exclusively through LEGO channels including LEGO Stores, LEGO Online Shop and LEGOLAND. On October 26th, the MMOG will officially launch through all retail channels via a distribution partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Planned for global release, LEGO Universe will be rolled out to additional territories after the initial launch.
“Our vision is to provide LEGO fans of all ages with a whole new quality play experience and creative platform, and LEGO Universe will open up exciting new opportunities for fun and expression this October,” said Henrik Taudorf Lorensen, Vice President, LEGO Digital, the LEGO Group. “The dedicated LEGO fan community has contributed to the development of LEGO Universe since the start of the project, and we show our appreciation with the early Founders release.”
