The Best LEGOs In Life Are Free-To-Play

LEGOs are like a fine wine, they get better with age. But also like fine wine the finest LEGOs can get pretty pricey, especially if you buy in bulk. Thankfully, you wont have to sell your house or your dignity to get your LEGO fix anymore.

LEGO massively multiplayer computer game LEGO Universe goes free to play starting in August. Non-paying players will have access to limited game content including two adventure zones and one area for building LEGO models.

Players can upgrade their membership for $US10 a month and receive access to the adventures, building spaces, competitions and community events of the full game. There are no plans for in-game micro-transactions at the moment.

LEGO is also making the full game available as a download, no longer requiring people to buy a hardcopy in a store.

    Will it be available in Australia tho??

    As an Aussie I should care about this why?

    How many people are interested in an F2P game that isn't even available in this country.

    Are you all on drugs ? Like all other MMO's there is the capability of Digital Download.

    For the record I am in Melbourne, Vic.

    I have played the beta and enjoyed it.

    Sadly my income doesnt always permit me to play subscription based games. I will crank up the install once it goes free. Do what I can then see about the new 10 buck fee.

      They ip blocked it.

      Also, the plural of LEGO is LEGO damnit! stop destroying childhoods.

        Yes, thankyou! We don't say "LEGOs" around these here parts, stranger.

        Just pay for an american web proxy and buy it digitally. I've been playin for a month now :)

      No drugs at the moment. And yes I played the beta to but the actual release was not, and is still not as far as I know, available in Australia. Would be nice if Kotaku let us know if it will be available in Australia.

    I'm not sure this is really free to play... Playing in two zones only? No access to higher game content? This sounds like an extended demo, sort of like Ragnarok Online did where you can play as much as you want, but not beyond level 10.

    IMO "freeplay" should mean that the user gets access to all the core content with only peripheral aspects being pay-for.

    Lego online sounds like a bad idea.

    FFS Americans, they're Lego bricks, not "legos". It's like calling clay bricks "clays".
