Lego Minifigures Online heading to Windows PC and mobile in 2014

Funcom MMO Lego Minifigures Online is launching next year as a cross-platform multiplayer game for Windows PC, browsers, iOS and Android devices, developer Funcom told Polygon.

The free-to-play game replaces the now-dead Lego Universe, the MMO that closed its doors last year after failing to make sufficient revenue from its target market. Unlike the earlier MMO release, Lego Minifigures Online is a free-to-play game that focuses on Lego-oriented action, unique character abilities and the ability to collect nearly 100 characters while being able to switch between three playable characters at any time.

The MMO is tied to a simultaneous Minifigures toy line release, which will include an in-game code with every real-world Minifigure toy. The code allows players to access their real-world toy as a playable character in-game.

Much like the earlier Lego MMO, this release will also prioritize child-safety systems in the game, a Funcom representative told Polygon. Funcom is working alongside Lego's child-safety processes to protect children using the game's chat and friending systems.

Lego Minifigurines Online launches next year during the second half of 2014 following several rounds of beta.
