I recieved word a couple of days ago that my Lego Universe
beta invite was forthcoming, and though the closed beta is under media release embargo; at least I'll be able to start playing and forming my opinion on the game. I won't be able to share anything about what I see, but I will try to share my character name, so if anyone else is playing we can try and find each other in the game.
In a fun coincidence, I got my Lego
Club magazine today, and there was an exclusive Lego Universe
comic that came with it. On the back cover is a pre-order offer where you can get mini-fig and some in game accessories for ordering during the pre-order period. I've been looking forward to this game since it was announced, and seeing the special order comes out means they're getting close to ready.
The date the pre-order will be available is May 14th, and you can get it by clicking here
. At some point the embargo will lift and I'll be able to share my impressions of the game.
