Release Date: October 26, 2010
Even if you already know that MMOG stands for “Massively Multiplayer Online Game,” you may not realize what that says about LEGO Universe, the first MMOG for LEGO fans!
For starters, MMOGs stand apart from other types of video games largely because a MMOG can host huge numbers of players at once. LEGO Universe is a GIANT online world where hundreds of thousands of fans from all over earth will safely build, play and pal around together!
The first creation all those fans will make upon entering LEGO Universe is their own custom LEGO minifigure. Once you become your little LEGO person, you’ll have space and freedom to build, quest, battle bad guys, explore, make new friends or show off your incredible LEGO creations!
In addition to the enormous number of people that can play at once, MMOG’s are special because their action happens in “persistent” gameworlds. That just means that the gaming fun never stops! 24 hours per day, somebody somewhere will be having a blast playing and customizing LEGO Universe!
So, the word “gameworld” only scratches the surface of what this incredible virtual playground is. LEGO Universe will be built up from scores of your favorite LEGO worlds and themes from the past present and future. Imagine discovering pirates, knights, ninjas, dragons, mechs and many more fun and mysterious characters as you explore and adventure!
What’s more, players will continually unlock new worlds that they’ll customize and enhance with their creativity! LEGO Universe could become any of an almost infinite number of gameworlds depending on how you play and what you want to build and create. It’s truly an ever-expanding and changing universe: A LEGO Universe without end…
