Activision Publishing, Inc. has launched Skylanders Spyro’s Universe, in beta, which will add another dimension to Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure. The virtual world allows kids to engage with Skylanders characters and fellow players.

Found online at www.universe.skylanders.com, the Universe is a fantasy realm of floating islands designed to encourage world-building, exploration, and friendly competition. Players who own the game or figures can input each figure’s code, or use the Portal of Power, to bring them to life inside the universe.

Those who don’t own a figure can join the virtual world by creating a free online account. Eon, the helpful Skylanders guide, will then provide newbies with a digital starter kit. For more information, visit www.universe.skylanders.com.
