The LEGO Movie videogame to release on current, next-gen in 2014

Tuesday, 16th July 2013 20:39 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

The LEGO Movie videogame has been announced by Warner and TT Games.

The game will be based on the Village Roadshow Pictures film and will launch in 2014 alongside the movie and a set of toys.

In the game, players take on the role of Emmet, an ordinary LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the “most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world.”

Players will guide him as he is drafted into a “fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.”

Would-be Emmet’s will also use LEGO instruction pages to build construction sets or harness the power of the Master Builders to build LEGO creations. It also contains over 90 characters inspired by the film and 15 levels.

The Lego Movie game will be released on 3DS, PC, PS3, PS4, Vita, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

    After Lego City I need any future Lego games to have an open world to run around in too. Succession of levels isn’t going to cut it with me anymore.

    Actually, LEGO Batman 2 was already open world. As is the upcoming LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (in which I’m desperately hoping that they’ll have ‘I am Iron Man’ playing whenever Tony Stark takes off).

    The LEGO games are really going from strength to strength, though. They’ve always been good and every mistake they’ve made they’ve learned from in successive games. This is one example of the mainstream doing things right — actually making good products, learning from past errors, and actually doing something a little different every time around.

    Each of the LEGO games has had something that is uniquely a part of that game, such as the strategy segments of LEGO Star Wars (which I loved). And I just want to see where they’ll continue to take it.

    But most notably about the LEGO games is that despite their colourful exterior, they’re one of the few mainstream games to still require any amount of skill in order to get all of the collectible thingies, and they’re FUN.

    I’m still waiting to see when TT will drop the ball, because I have this feeling that they’ll get to a point where they feel so comfortable that they’ll begin cranking out half-arsed games. I’m watching them like an eagle, because I do that with all of my favourite game developers. And I’m hoping beyond hope that that doesn’t happen, as right now they are one of my favourite devs.

    Don’t fuck this up, TT.

    And definitely don’t fuck up LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. >8I
