The studio released LEGO Minifigures Online last October as a free-to-play title, although it has not been the revenue generator that Funcom had hoped. To boost its profile and hopefully provide the game with a more appropriate business model, Funcom is re-releasing Minifigures Online next Monday for a one-time $29.99 fee on Mac and PC. There will also be an iOS and Android version for $4.99 that includes the first world and the option to buy more worlds at a later date. All platforms are cross-play compatible with each other.
Funcom aims to use the relaunch as an excuse to overhaul the game and add in plenty of new features and improvements, culminating in what it’s calling the “definitive version” of the title.
As it is common practice on mobile platforms, the LEGO Minifigures Online game will be available in a limited test market prior to its launch on 29 June 2015. For practical reasons the Company has chosen Ireland as the test market, and the game will be available in the Irish iOS App-store as of today.
Additionally, our customers on desktop platforms (Windows and Mac) who are eligible for a free upgrade to the [Buy]-to-Play version will be able to experience the game from the same moment.
