LEGO Worlds Is The Classic Brick Maker’s Answer to Minecraft
We’ve seen Minecraft themed LEGO and now LEGO Worlds brings a procedurally generated land made of LEGO Bricks to Steam Early Access.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The LEGO Group today announced LEGO Worlds where players will be able to build unique environments and define their own experience. Developed by TT Games, LEGO Worlds allows players to use LEGO building sets digitally so they can build and create wherever their skills and imagination roam.

LEGO Worlds enters Steam Early Access today for $14.99, with the goal of getting community feedback for continual improvements.

“LEGO Worlds embodies the physical, LEGO brick-building fun that consumers have enjoyed for decades, on a digital platform that delivers an entirely new type of experience with the beloved bricks,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games. “From the brick-by-brick editor, to discovering an expansive range of items, characters and creatures to populate your worlds – the creative possibilities are endless.”
In LEGO Worlds, it looks like players will have the freedom to alter the world and create contructions using LEGO bricks. The difference to Minecraft is that LEGO World will offer prefabricated structures to customize the environments. Large-scale landscaping tools are available to modify terrain.
From the trailer alone, it’s unclear if LEGO World has seperate modes for ‘Survival’ and ‘Creative’ like in similar games Space Engineers and Minecraft or something different altogether. While ‘Survival’ mode in Minecraft required players to harvest resources for construction, LEGO may handle things differently.
“From helicopters to dragons, motorbikes to bears, there are always interesting ways for players to explore the vast worlds and discover hidden treasures.”
Fans of the LEGO building sets will be rewarded with a select number of commercially available sets that can be unlocked in-game during Early Access, with many more to come in future game updates. Future plans will also offer multiplayer and sharing features, for friends to experience each other’s worlds and show-off their creations.
