If you miss being able to play with LEGO bricks in an online environment, you'll be happy to know that LEGO Minifigures Online
has just entered open beta. The last time a LEGO-themed game came out, it didn't turn out so well
, but the new game is a very different experience, allowing players to take control of the many LEGO minifigures currently available to adventure in a variety of LEGO-themed environs.
Currently, the beta test is available only for Windows computers in English, with other localizations and a tablet client slated for release during the test process. Open beta will also see the refinement of game mechanics and the free-to-play business model, so nothing that's in the game right now is set in stone. If you've been feeling the loss of brick-based gameplay, now might be the time to jump in and start playing for yourself.
