Lego Worlds will Be Coming to PS4, PC, and Xbox One this February: Signals End for Minecraft?
It looks like Minecraft will be losing its spark anytime soon as the announcement of Lego World created too much excitement for PC, PS4, and Xbox One users. Lego World, a game highly similar with Minecraft, will be launched in these favorite gaming consoles this February 21 although those who like to get an Early Access can do so.
Lego World was originally launched last June of 2015 into their Early Access program, which allows players to try out the game even if it is still in development. Those who were able to avail of this service were also able to take benefit of giving feedback to developers. Now, after a couple of years in development, Lego World will soon become a finished game.
In a press statement, the head of production at TT Games, Jonathan Smith said that "In LEGO Worlds, players will go on an exciting journey to become a Master Builder, in an open world made completely of LEGO-built environments." He further added, "Whether customizing characters, exploring in vehicles, building structures, or discovering an expansive range of items, characters, and creatures throughout the worlds, there's the freedom to create anything imaginable."
President David Haddad of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment said, "LEGO Worlds expands our LEGO video game franchise with a new experience that embodies all the fun of physical LEGO brick building." He added that he is excited to be able to launch a game that will give unlimited creativity and humor.
Will this signal the end of Minecraft? Not really because the two comes with significant differences. For example, the players in Minecraft would lay blocks one after the other while this is not the case with Lego Worlds that gives player several tools that will allow them to build things faster and easier. Anyway, we will be able to find out more about how this new game will impact the popularity of Minecraft after its launching this February.
