New MMO coming out based on everyones favorite building blocks. It comes out October 26th, 12th for those who pre-order.
Lego Universe takes place in an alternate universe populated by Lego minifigures. Many years ago, a team of minifigures went off to seek the last essence of pure imagination. Once they found it, Baron Typhonus used the imagination to create a giant chaotic spider to demonstrate the power of imagination. The spider took him into the source of pure imagination and created a dark force known as the Maelstrom. This being of dark imagination is able to turn otherwise innocent minifigures and creatures into Stromlings.
After the creation of the Maelstrom, the remaining explorers formed the Nexus Force, an organization devoted to the protection of the remaining imagination. After the formation, however, the leaders were unable to agree on the best method of defeating the Maelstrom. Thus, the Nexus Force was divided into three Factions, each with a unique speciality: building (the Assembly), battling (the Sentinels) and exploring (the Venture League). The three explorers then recruited the Baron's former assistant, Vanda Darkflame, to lead a fourth Faction: the Paradox, devoted to Maelstrom research.
Once the Nexus Force was established, a headquarters was required to organize the many minifigs coming to help. Doc Overbuild oversaw the construction of the Nexus Tower, the base of the Nexus Force. The tower had two other purposes: to protect the last piece of pure imagination, and serve as a beacon of unity and hope for the future of imagination.
Now, great plans are in place to push back the power of the Maelstrom, and restore harmony to the universe. Players will join together to help the people of the Lego Universe battle the Maelstrom and its Stromling army."
Found out about this awhile back was waiting to see if anyone else would make a thread since i dont like too. Anyways looks like a fun game i'll probably pay 1 month then see if it's worth paying for either a 6 or 12 month deal. Anyone else plan on giving it a try. There are vids on youtube about pve, building, and racing.
