The world of Lego continues to expand as new DLC and a Nintendo Switch version of Lego Worlds have been announced.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Traveller’s Tales and the Lego Group announced that Lego World’s first themed content pack, the “Classic Space Pack”, will be available July 5th and will cost $3.99. The new DLC will include brand new quests, introducing new characters, builds and vehicles from the popular Lego Space playsets. Players will be able to travel through space, exploring the new moon biome and classic space theme world.
It was also announced today that Lego Worlds will be coming to the Nintendo Switch later this fall. The physical version of the game will feature access to two bonus DLC packs, including the newly announced Classic Space Pack. The digital version of the game will only include the base game with DLC available separate on Nintendo’s eShop.
Lego Worlds is a Lego sandbox game which allows players to build a world made up of Lego bricks. Unlike most Lego titles, Lego Worlds plays similarly to Minecraft, allowing players the freedom to do as they please in a world of their own creation. Players can edit their appearance and outfit and are able to build a variety of structures and vehicles. A beta version of the game was released on PC through Steam’s early access program in 2015. The finalized version of Lego Worlds launched earlier in March for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game is being updated regularly and is set to add features such as world-sharing and a multiplayer mode. Reception of the game has been mixed since its release. While most critics praise the game’s Lego aesthetic and the ability to build freely, Lego Wold’s UI and controls are considered to be slightly cumbersome.
The Nintendo Switch version of Lego Worlds is currently available for pre-order.
