Warner Bros. has officially announced that they have teamed up with TT Games to create the next LEGO game. This one, however, will be based on the upcoming LEGO feature film. I’ll be the first to admit that the LEGO games make up about 99% of my guilty pleasure gaming purchases yet, I am still not certain I will buy this new installment. I’m waiting for more information which is set to be revealed closer to the release date.
The LEGO Movie Videogame will cast players as average minifigure Emmet, who due to a series of unfortunate events has somehow become viewed as the only person able to save the world. What follows is a quest to stop an evil tyrant, with Emmet needing to become the hero everyone thinks he already is before it’s too late.
Managing director of TT Games Tom Stone said,
“We’re thrilled to be able to give kids the joy of reliving Emmet’s adventures in becoming virtual Master Builders with The LEGO Movie Videogame. Players will be taking on the ultimate mission to save the LEGO world and use their virtual building prowess to build unimaginable sets and creations.”
The title will be released in 2014 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, PC, Vita and 3DS alongside the upcoming LEGO film. It will include 90 characters and 15 levels. You can see a screenshot below and above.
