WBIE, TT Games, and The Lego Group Launch Lego Worlds

LegoWorldsLaunchLego Worlds, a galaxy of imaginative worlds made of digital Lego bricks where players can explore, discover and create together, is now available for PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, and STEAM. Developed by TT Games and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Lego Worlds will be available for Nintendo Switch later this year.

In Lego Worlds, players embark on a creative adventure to become a Master Builder and uncover hidden treasures in environments, where worlds come to life with a variety of vehicles and creatures—from gingerbread men riding elephants to cavewomen scaring polar bears, to swamp police helicopters, hot air balloons and arctic snow scooters.

Gamers can embark on a quest to become a Master Builder by helping other Lego characters along the way, such as finding a sword for an Egyptian Queen, protecting a fisherman from a giant troll invasion, or building a home for a cyclops. Kids can build environments and creations in any ways they can imagine, either by building brick by brick, placing down enormous prebuilt LEGO structures, or by using tools that let them paint and shape the landscape. Lego Worlds’ online multiplayer functionality allows players to explore each other’s worlds together and engage in cooperative and competitive play experiences that players can build themselves.

A Lego Agents pack, featuring new characters, vehicles, weapons and more from the Agents range of play materials, will be available exclusively on PlayStation 4 for a limited time.
