LEGO Universe to Have Trading Cards

Post by Tomthewarrior on Wed Jul 28, 2010 11:25 am

Kotaku wrote:Collectible bricks become collectible cards next year, when NetDevil's LEGO Universe expands with a virtual and physical trading card game, courtesy of the experts at Dire Wolf Digital. Who is Dire Wolf Digital?

Integrating a digital and physical collectible card game into an MMO seems like a very Sony Online Entertainment thing to do, which makes complete sense when you realize that Dire Wolf Digital is a company made up of former SOE Denver team members. Company president Scott Martins was the studio head of SOE Denver, after his previous company, Worlds Apart Productions, was acquired by them in 2006.

So Dire Wolf Digital has a lot of experience making collectible card game tie-ins for online games, including Legends of Norrath, the Star Wars Galaxies TCG, and the Free Realms TCG. It's what they do, and now they're doing it with LEGO Universe.

"Creating a game with the LEGO Group and NetDevil is an exciting opportunity, allowing us to work with a beloved brand and great business partners," said Scott Martins, president of Dire Wolf Digital. "The creativity and ‘build anything' spirit of the brand and LEGO Universe fit perfectly with trading card games, where players are limited only by their imaginations."

My imagination says to expect a game where colored bricks equal mana used to build creatures and weapons to battle your opponent. We'll see if I am right next year.

This should be intriguing. What kind of characters and items can they possibly have trading cards of?

That would be cool! I just know they are a waste of money if you have nobody to trade with...

That would be cool- but do you think there'd be enough cherectors?

I mean, i have Star Wars CCG game, it has a TON of cherectors- yes, it would be cool, but you would need more then 5 unique cherectors- like 30 or such tobe a great hit, even though if they only have the chaectors they have now, such as the 5 "heros" they could also make something like adding in the LEGO Agents, Lego Star Wars, and all the other LEGO themes with mnifigs- like Indiana Jones- and have it so they can all be played together- one HUGE Card game set- all the legos- on cards- ready to battle-

THAT is MY Opinion.

Firstly, this seems to be going a bit too far, LEGO's already gone from physical bricks to Flash bricks in MLN, then virtual bricks in LU. But paper bricks? Sounds like they're trying to become Pokemon... Razz

Secondly, it would be pointless me buying any, as none of my friends get LEGO sets, well, they do, they just wouldn't get accessories and things like this.

TBD

Personally, I love trading cards, but I have never found a series that both: 1 I enjoy and 2 other people play. Thus, I love this idea because 1 I, of course, love LEGO and 2 I can play online with other players! Happy day Very Happy

Sounds intriguing and a bit like the 39 clues - digital and physical cards.
