Build your team of Minifigures and explore classic LEGO® worlds in an online adventure for LEGO fans of all ages, unfolding seamlessly across all devices
Oslo, Norway – June 29th, 2015 – Funcom today announced that LEGO® Minifigures Online, an online adventure for LEGO fans of all ages, is now available on PC, Mac, Linux, iOS and select Android devices. The game features full cross-platform play, allowing players to play together in the same online world as thousands of other LEGO fans around the globe.
After a limited run as a free-to-play game with optional membership on PC only, Funcom have been working tirelessly preparing the game for launch across all platforms, and is now introducing the game as a one-time purchase free of membership and subscription. For those who played the earlier PC incarnation of the game, they will find a game with all new gameplay and content, featuring unique events, cinematics, voice acting, a fun and engaging story and so much more.
"LEGO® Minifigures Online is designed for LEGO fans of all ages; for those who love online games, and those who have never played one before," says Funcom CEO Rui Casais. "To make it even easier for friends to play together, the game is playable seamlessly on a large number of platforms and devices, and everyone plays together in the same online world. No matter whether you are playing on a smartphone, tablet or desktop, you will all be playing the same game -- together."
In LEGO Minifigures Online, players can collect over one hundred Minifigures and build a team to journey through classic LEGO worlds. To unlock the full potential of their minifigures, players must collaborate with others, smashing through aliens, sea monsters, and more, from Pirate World to Space World and beyond. To ensure a fun and secure online experience for everyone, the game is KidSafe-certified and fully COPPA compliant.

The iOS and Android versions are available in the App Store and on Google Play respectively for $4.99, which will include the first world.
