More news on new LEGO MMO

Post by Roddy15 on Tue Aug 28, 2012 10:39 am

"A few weeks ago, Norway's Funcom announced the signing of a partnership with the LEGO Group for the development of a new MMO free-to-play inspired by the licensed LEGO Minifigures (small LEGO representing all archetypes of characters very different from the viking cowboy through astronaut or a pirate, among others). The game unveils its ambitions through quarterly accounts of the developer.

Designed with today's technology Funcom (the DreamWorld engine?) And strong development short (less than 18 months), LEGO Minifigures is presented as a title "extremely accessible and aimed at a wide audience." The game is to be "fun and quick to play," relies on humor and good nature of the license and child development, clearly on the collection of content (the player should clearly accumulate Minifigures, "all with different abilities ") and team play centered around small groups of players.
And if the project is just beginning, Funcom has already announced a universe designed to be easily updated and enriched over time (including the players themselves - SASN going too far, you can imagine building with LEGO bricks) ... Based on the schedule of the group, it should be judge by the end of 2013."

Found this while browsing the web. Found it on a French site, translated it with google translate so things might not be 100% accurate.

In other new Funcom has also announced that they have got less profit then they hoped from another MMO and that they may have to change the subs of most of their MMOs. LEGO stated though they will be willing to put loads of money into exploring online LEGO games.

Also lego itself has not announced the game but many lego employees have confirmed this new game,and say they know a lot about it and that is has been in development for a while back "around" December 2011. It is rumored that the lego minifigures showcase will be used to keep track of your minifigures so that you can have your minifigs that you have in real life,IN the game.

GUYS! BIG NEWS! JUST FOUND THIS ON THE FUNCOM WEBSITE! It's on there investor presentation report,and it's a report on all of there games. Here is what they said about the new LEGO minifigures game.
Built on existing Funcom technology
Tightly focused gameplay
Developed in close partnership with
LEGO
18 months development time

Private and Confidential - Intended solely for use by recipient 18
well as through other channels
Highly accessible, wide audience
Fast, fun and furious
Filled with LEGO style humor
Focused around collection driven game play
Team up with friends and play together
Each Minifigure has a unique set of abilities
Private and Confidential - Intended solely for use by recipient 19

Core team working towards the first
milestone
-It also said that core team established and should have their first "milestone" done this fall. I am assuming that the "milestone" means alpha testing,it would line up with other sources. Also if that guy was right about the game being developed in January,then the game should come out around June 2013,so it would be around my birthday,and that would also confirm it being 2013 as well!

ALSO THEY WILL BE REVEALING MORE INFO ON NOVEMBER 16TH!

Ah, right when I'm a junior. Sad Might have time to alpha test, but probably won't be able to play the actual game.
