It was a bit quiet on the LEGO Universe
front for most of 2009, with a reveal of screenshots
, and a bit of development news here
, but not much else.
January 2010 changed all of that, with a big reveal at CES
that gave us a trailer full of zombie pirate awesome
, and some actual alpha footage of the game
. This quick progression from screenshots and interviews to trailers and gameplay footage led to the natural assumption that more was going to come quickly, and we were right: signups for the LEGO Universe
beta began today, just a short while ago.
Don't tell us that it's a kids game and you're entirely too grown-up for it -- we know better. Nobody outgrows LEGO. Now go sign up for the beta, you know you want to. Signups can be made here
, and we hope to see you in the beta. (Yes, we're signing up too. We told you: nobody outgrows LEGO.)
