Lego's 'Minecraft' clone arrives February 17th

The overlap between Minecraft’s brick-building fun and Lego’s actual plastic blocks was bound to happen sooner or later. Last summer, Warner Brothers rolled out an early version of Lego Worlds on Steam Early Access in order to gather feedback from players before launching the final version. Today, the company announced that official launch will happen early next year. Lego’s take on Minecraft’s construction techniques is set to arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam on February 17th.

During the course of the game, you’ll be able to customize a character, drive an assortment of vehicles and build pretty much anything you want. You’ll interact with other characters and “an expansive range of items” on the way to becoming a Master Builder. There’s even a zombie invasion you’ll need to take care of for a farmer.

Of course, this digital take on the toy blocks means there’s a lot less clean up when you’re done building whatever it is you set out to construct. When Lego Worlds arrives in February, PlayStation 4 owners will be privy to an exclusive Lego Agents DLC that includes characters, vehicles and weapons. For now, take a look at the teaser trailer down below.
