LEGO Worlds is an online multiplayer title which revolves around constructing you own structures, exploring the world and interacting with other players – in short, a virtual sandbox. The production has been developed by the Traveller’s Tales studio, the authors of the renowned series of LEGO themed video games.
This time we are not transported into a movie or comic book universe; instead, we create a new world for ourselves. To accomplish this, the developers have prepared a range of terraforming tools which greatly simplify the process, allowing you to quickly shape large areas and also create complex structures piece by piece. You can also create characters (not just the ones you control), by picking various elements of clothing and appearance. Apart from the works of other users, the world is filled with towns, villages and procedurally generated dungeons, furthermore, we have the ability to play around with countless sets of LEGO blocks, which also exist in a physical form.
The players can get around the area with a variety of different vehicles, such as planes, gliders or gigantic drills, or on the back of miscellaneous steeds, e.g. the usual horses, the not-so-usual bears or ostriches and even on fire-breathing dragons; in accordance with the spirit of the title you can also design your own means of transportation. There are many findings and secrets to be found in LEGO Worlds; whilst travelling through the land you will encounter numerous enemies (e.g. skeletons), which you can fight using a wide range of weaponry, from melee arms to rocket launchers.
We can stumble across other players in the virtual world when playing online. Apart from that, the projects you have created can be saved and shared with others. LEGO Worlds has a very distinctive art style, the universe and the characters are build out of virtual LEGO blocks, the creators have made sure that the lighting effects and shadows are on a high level and have also included various features, such as a day and night cycle.
