LEGO Universe: 86,000 Player Made Creations In One Month
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
The LEGO Group recently announced that 86,000 LEGO creations have been added by players in the past month to its LEGO Universe MMO, and promised the release of more content for the game in 2011. Developed for Mac by TransGaming, the game allows players to create their own custom LEGO minifigure and venture forth to combat the Maelstrom, join with friends to complete missions, and collect bricks to build imaginative creations.
With creative innovation at heart, players rushed to claim over 12,000 personal property areas in the first week post-launch, for building original LEGO creations. Two months later, the pioneering spirit is alive and well in LEGO Universe. More than 86,000 player properties have gone through the game’s moderation team in the past month alone. Players are building and programming just about everything they can dream up – forts, castles, baseball parks, space stations and much more. So LEGO Universe moderators are at it 24/7 to prescreen all player-created LEGO models and properties in-game. With virtually unlimited capabilities for expression, moderation is crucial to providing the safest possible environment possible, without snuffing player freedom to create and share.Read more at the links below.

Since launch, the development team has already begun massive expansions in LEGO Universe, adding new game content, community events and more each month. Update releases will continue regularly, well beyond the New Year, to expand, evolve and enhance LEGO Universe in 2011 and for years to come. Some of the content additions post-launch in 2010 included: the first LEGO Universe “World Builder League” zones (several official fan-created content areas, unveiled in November 2010); and the limited-edition “Frostburgh” update, released this December, added a new festive world for players to explore for the holidays, complete with wintery missions, models and achievements.
“Since LEGO Universe is a massively-multiplayer online game, players are encouraged to build, battle and explore together with friends and family,” said Mark William Hansen, LEGO Universe Senior Director, the LEGO Group. “Only a few weeks after launch, LEGO Universe, boasts an impressively high NPS score - the rating that measures how likely users are to recommend the game to someone else - above 70% among the core 8-12-year-old audience, which is world class!”
2011 is set to amaze and inspire players with incredible new content, building upon current game worlds and introducing numerous new ones. There will be new opportunities for multiplayer interaction, putting collaboration and competition to work in community-based missions, and giving players new capabilities to share gameplay experiences with friends. Players will find new ways to express their personality and creativity, with new pet features, faction kits, skills, weapons, achievements and beyond.
Significant content updates will push the LEGO Universe storyline forward in 2011, unlocking new worlds and storyline details. The community must come together, building new game elements together, brick by brick. Nexus Force leaders will take players into the most important battles to-date, in an ultimate struggle to push back the Maelstrom for good. New, original LEGO IP will also collide with the LEGO Universe storyline in 2011, offering never-before-seen LEGO models within vivid new game environments in-game.
