Lego Worlds is a Lego-themed sandbox game developed by Traveller's Tales and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. The game allows players to build constructions in a 3D procedurally generated world. A beta version of the game was released on 1 June 2015 on Steam Early Access. It was released on 7 March 2017 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.[1] A version for Nintendo Switch was released on 5 September 2017 in North America and 8 September 2017 in Europe.[2][3]

Gameplay

Lego Worlds is a sandbox video game which allows players to build a world made up of Lego bricks.[4][5] The player is rewarded for collecting objects spread across the map with "studs", an in-game currency. The player can build using the items they have encountered. Players can create their own world by using predefined Lego structures or using the "brick-by-brick editor tool". Players' appearances and outfits are customizable in the game. Terrain and environment can be modified via landscaping tools. A variety of vehicles, such as helicopters, and creatures are featured in the game. A multiplayer option and features for world-sharing have been added to the game through later updates.[6]

Development

Prior to the game's official release, it was teased in the back of a Lego set's construction manual.[7] It was formally announced on 1 June 2015 with a simultaneous early access release on Steam to allow the gaming community to provide feedback for continual improvements and the integration of additional content over time.[8]

Reception

Reception was generally positive, though players had mixed opinions in some cases.[citation needed] The game was nominated for "Family Game" at the 14th British Academy Games Awards.[9][10]
