Lego Minifigures Online is a massively multiplayer online game developed by Funcom released in October 2014. The game is based on the Lego Minifigures theme, allowing players to unlock and play as the various characters from the theme, while also incorporating elements from classic Lego themes such as castle and space and also involving new themes like mythology. In addition to unlocking new minifigures through normal gameplay, players are able to unlock minifigures by purchasing physical Lego Minifigures blind bags, which contain special codes that, once entered, allow the character to be unlocked instantly. The game is free to play from a PC client, on web browsers, Android, and iOS (currently in closed Beta as of December 2014). The game began beta testing which in June 2014, and is enjoying full rollout with the Series 12 and upcoming Series 13 minifigure blind bag sets.
The game takes inspiration from both classic isometric RPGs and modern Lego games. Players can click to move their character and attack enemies, and smash and build Lego objects. The player can have up to three minifigures to swap between quickly while playing, and can also open their inventory to change which three they have immediate access to. Minifigures can also be leveled up with experience points, to improve their abilities. The game contains numerous themed worlds accessed from a hub, with each world containing multiple dungeons to raid. Players will also be able to battle against other players in teams. The music is set to be the same as Lego Universe.
The beta testing is completed for the PC, Steam, and Mac versions of the game. Gameplay is live as of October, 2014. The iOS version of the game is currently in Beta as of December 2014
The characters included in the game are made up of the minifigures from the Lego Minifigures series. As of September 2014, several minifigures were available for purchase for use in the game through 6 and 10 month memberships.
