A CES Look at LEGO Universe

A CES Look at LEGO Universe - MMORPG.com

MMORPG.com's Carolyn Koh was recently at CES. While there, she got some preview time with the upcoming NetDevil MMO, Lego Universe.

Team members of LUPs - Lego Universe Partners were on hand at CES 2010 to show off Lego Universe together with Lego and NetDevil. These are adult volunteers that are assisting Lego and NetDevil to playtest and refine Lego Universe. The team number about 50 adult Lego builders and all were invited by Lego to participate in the LUP program to provide feedback and suggestions. I met Joel Hoornbeck who was happy to show me the Lego Digital Design program, a free download that's available from www.lego.com and how it was used and integrated into Lego Universe.

Targeted at boys aged eight to twelve, Lego Universe will also appeal to Lego fans who are gamers and perhaps MMO fans who also enjoy the building brick toy. To begin with, it's a PvE world. Much like many other Lego branded games such as Lego Star Wars and Lego Indiana Jones, you take on the persona of a Lego mini-fig and go about whacking Lego monsters which break down into component parts, some which can then be used to build other helpful objects such as a turret.
