Video gamer producer Funcom has announced that LEGO Minifigures Online will be coming to iOS, Mac, PC and Android devices next week. The June 29th launch will bring all of the platforms together allowing gamers to collect minifigures and battle together online, no matter what device they are using.
We have the full details below:
This new version will allow LEGO Minifigure players to begin playing on a Mac and switch to an iOS device to continue gaming. After originally being free-to-play, Funcom is now switching over to a standard paid model. The Steam version for PC, Mac and Linux will retail for $29.99, while the iOS and Android-based games will have a $4.99 price tag.
Funcom proudly proclaims that this new version has been completely redesigned for a “fresh, new and even higher-quality experience”. New events and game modes have been added to expand on the previous generation version, while gameplay remains largely based around collecting figurines that look like their real life counterparts and completing missions along the way.
CEO of Funcom Rui Casais details LEGO Minifigures Online further:
“This really is the definitive version of LEGO Minifigures Online and we are very much looking forward to opening the servers for players to experience it. Not only will it feel like a fresh, new experience for those who have played the earlier free-to-play PC version, there is also so much potential unlocked now that you can play with each other across platforms on a broad range of devices. Maybe you are playing on an iPhone while your friend is on an Android tablet and your dad is on a high-powered PC; you’ll still play together in the same persistent online world, along with thousands of other LEGO fans from all over the globe.”
LEGO Minifigures Online will be available on June 29th via Steam, as well as the Apple App Store and Google Play.
