Our team at LegoUni.com has conducted another exclusive interview with Ryan Seabury, the creative director for Lego Universe! There's lots of juicy new answers to all your Lego questions regarding building processes, pvp, combat, and how players can work together to build structures and complete quests!
Here's a look at the first few questions from the interview:
Is the click and drag process for building going to be
the only way option for custom building? Will you implement a faster way, like
keyboard controls, sometime in the future?
LEGO® Universe offers a large range of building tools to enable everything from simple gameplay-oriented builds to completely unrestricted building. We realize many players will want to design complex creations using the custom building tools, and we’re working to make the process as user-friendly as possible – whatever it takes to help players’ imaginations run wild.
Is there going to be a way to make a specific brick or special, morphing brick so you can obtain a brick you have not unlocked yet?
There are numerous ways to obtain bricks in LEGO Universe – You can collect new bricks and entire models by completing challenges, smashing stuff, trading with other players, exploring new areas, etc. Almost everything you do in LEGO Universe is rewarded with collectibles, coins, bricks and items. With thousands of different brick shapes available in many LEGO colors in the game, we expect players will have all they need and more. Besides, part of the challenge of building with LEGO bricks is being creative with what you’ve got ;)
