Since last year gamers have been able to experience LEGO Worlds through Steam's Early Access of the game. They've been able to help TT Games shape the game into something that they want and will hopefully be something that the mass audience out there will also want. At least I am going to guess that is what Warner Bros. wants for the game. Especially now that it looks like LEGO Worlds will not only be hitting the PC but also the PS4 and Xbox One soon. How soon? Well it looks like February 24th is the day that we will all be seeing the game go live. Or at least officially live.
Yes, the date has been set and if you were holding out for LEGO Worlds to be in a production setting then you now have the day to look forward to. If you are just now hearing about the game though, welcome. It is a Minecraft-like title but set in the LEGO universe with all of the building blocks and humor you would expect from a game set there. It may not be your traditional LEGO title and with LEGO Dimensions still being something huge, it will be yet another great distraction from the rest of the world. At least until gamers learn how to seriously troll each other and then it will be a passing fad. Let's hope that is way down the line.
Have a look at the new announcement for LEGO Worlds and then get ready to join in on the fun. Or let the title pass right by. It's all up to you in the end but it is interesting to see how the game has progressed and see that it is aiming to bring in the rest of the hardcore gamers out there all at the same time.
