Since Minecraft more or less ripped off the very concept of playing with LEGOs, why not return the favor? That seems to be the premise of LEGO Worlds, a new title by TT Games that released on Steam early access today.
Players will get to explore, mold, and exploit virtual worlds made of LEGO bricks. There’s a heavy emphasis on player-created and -shared content, and a familiar jagged block environment that should help ease players over from that “other” title.
Currently the feature list for the early access build is small and doesn’t contain the anticipated online multiplayer component, the studio says that it has grand plans to rapidly expand over the next year before launching in 2016. To get a taste of LEGO Worlds, you’ll need to pony up $15 for the privilege. The studio says that it expects the price will go up in the future.
