The lights are on
We finally get a look at Funcom's Lego-themed online MMO.
Funcom announced that it was creating a Lego MMO a while back, but we've had to wait to get a look at it. Judging from this trailer and screens, the title looks to be fairly ambitious in terms of the variety of the Lego universe that it hopes to bring. Still, as with any MMO, how well the game executed on a technical level will be the difference between success and failure.

Oh yeah, because their last MMO was such a huge success (Secret World). Unless they are truly innovative (which they won't be) they're going up against huge amount of competition. This seems like it'll need to compete with Skylanders and Disney Infinite too.
Hahaha nice, LEGO!!!!
Video starts playing: "Seems rather corny, if you ask me."
Character intros continue: "Yeah, this definitely won't be as good as Lego Univ-"
Lego Universe music starts playing: "SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!"
I gotta hand it to them. Funcom doesn't quit haha.
I didn't mind TSW, I liked the theme and I thought that was well done. Just wasn't sub-worthy at the time.(I know it's gone free since I played, but that ship has sailed)
Oh my gosh, I'd totally buy into this game!!
Seems interesting, I hope this turns out well.
Anyone remember Lego Island, Lego Racers, LEGOLAND?????
I really just wish this was a LEGO Univers 2. Also, it seems like there's no customization or loot, which may turn me off completely.
That minifig is HUGE! Oh wait, it's just flying...
Looked like Lego Halo for a sec. there. I'm always a sucker for Legos, but. . . I don't know. I'm just happy with the Lego console games for now, just don't have the time to sink into an MMO by default. The sheer amount of Lego games kinda makes one pick and choose and leave out the rest, and I wonder if that ultimately hurts Lego's own game line-up.
