LEGO brick heads, listen up – Our frisky favorite in the upcoming MMOG category (and a TriplePoint client), LEGO Universe has officially gone gold! That’s developer speak to say that the game is definitely shipping to shelves this October 26th (and LEGO channels beginning October 8th), for PC and Mac.
If I were you, I’d head on over and pre-order my copy now. Actually, first I’d check out these fresh new screenshots, released by the LEGO Group at PAX 2010 this week in Seattle.
“In the upcoming MMOG, the chaotic Maelstrom threatens to destroy all Imagination in the Universe! Only a courageous team of heroes, the Nexus Force, stands in its way, but they desperately need your help. Brand-new screenshots released this week at PAX take you even further into the game’s backstory – the Maelstrom’s darkness is spreading across LEGO Universe as enemy Stromlings battle the Nexus Force in the deepest corners of Forbidden Valley and beyond.”
There’s even more sweet new art and backstory details available on the game website – check it out. And if you’re at PAX this weekend, check out LEGO Universe for yourself in booth 3433!
