LU - exclusive content

| May 17, 2010

Flipz, a good friend of Vanderdecken and me, gaved us some exclusive news about LU.

I was at a LEGO store today, and I pre-ordered LEGO Universe! I asked the store manager when the order would ship, and he showed me a corporate memo that said the pre-order will ship on June 15 and that LU will be available to buy physically in stores on August 18. Just wanted to give you the scoop before anyone else!!

Play Well!


Thank you very much for this news.

That early? That´s less than a month left, and they yet have to record the discs and release Forbidden Valley for testing. I personally don´t think they will manage that.

That was I thinking too, but I believe Flipz.

Hmm.... Didn't LEGO website say that it was coming in Autumn 2010? Doesn't the US autumn begin in September? June is the first month of summer.

This article says that the pre-order will ship in June. That doesn't mean that the game will open then. It's just saying that you will receive the disc and minifigure then.

Eragon.Saphira has a good point, it does say autumn 2010, I believe Flipz but thats really interesting.

I'm not sure if someone said this, but there is a new alien game on the toy story website

new game on the toy story site. sort of base off of the "wack an alien" game seen at pizza planet in the first movie http://www.lego.com/toystory/en-us/Games/Alien%20Game.aspx

@LEGOVerse,
I understand what you mean but my point was why would LEGO have the game available two months before it went 'live' online? I mean wouldn't they use that time to iron out kinks? They are talking about shipping in a months time, yet they are still in beta testing. It would probably take a week or more to 'burn and label' the discs then package them. That gives the developers 20 days (approx.) to close beta and make final changes. And Forbidden Valley hasn't even gone to beta yet.
I believe what Flipz says but I wonder if the information he was given was correct.

Shipping will take a while...
And pre-ordering is just securing you a spot when the game opens(not allowing you to have open beta) for freedomnessmess! it is like paying now and getting it BETTER later.

Talking about exclusive content, although we are beta testers, many readers of this blog aren't. So talking about Forbidden Valley is breaking the Declaration of Secrecy.

Someone at MLNT pointed out that June 15th could merely be the date of release for the minifigs.

HOWEVER, they said the minifig ships with the game...

My guess is that June 15th is the END DATE of the pre-order period.

That'd make the most sense.

SSD. That guy that posted the info is the same source as we had. Probably it's the same...


Arin3. You actually did now the same with that comment... It's not that bad to use the name once. Everyone knows it already...

LegoFan101 said... [REPLY]

@Sim: I know, that's a different guy I'm referring to. ;D

@Eragon.Saphira

Oh, I agree with you completely. It just sounded like you though that the game went live in June, and I made sure you knew it was just being shipped then. And yes, it definitely does seem kinda' tight, shipping it in June. Of course, you never know how much content is actually stored on the DVD. A lot of stuff can be hosted on the servers, meaning that the Beta can still continue without changing what is on the discs.

Eragon.Saphira said... [REPLY]

LEGOVerse,
The point of beta is to find out what works and what doesn't and then fix what doesn't work before being released to the general public. What is the point of releasing a game if it is still being tested to find bugs? And I would say the majority of the game is on the disc. If not then why have a disc at all? Why not just download the entire game online? The reason is it is just too big to download all at once and it is simpler to have it on a disc.

LegoFan101 said... [REPLY]

@Eragon.Saphira: I dunno about that...

First off, later on there'll be a way to buy a download instead.

Second, online content isn't likely, but it's not impossible.

I looked through the files yesterday, and there doesn't appear to be enough there to fully function by itself.

It's hard to say now, though. ;)

Just a heads up guys Mission 19 was just released on The Great Minifig Mission. It works a bit like Minesweeper, every space that Vanda walks into she senses how many darklings are nearby (this includes diagonally.)
