The team at Funcom are getting ready for their closed beta test for their upcoming LEGO Minifigures Online game.  Today they opened up their official registration website.  I didn’t have this one on my radar, so let’s dig in and find out what it’s all about together!

LEGO® Minifigures Online is an upcoming online game where you get to smash, build and collect your way through wonderful worlds together with other players. Throughout development, Funcom will be inviting people to test the game’s content and mechanics in order to make sure the final experience is as enjoyable as possible.

If you would like to join up for a chance to play in the beta, please start by providing your date of birth below. For more information about LEGO® Minifigures Online, visit the LEGO® website.

The Closed Beta will be an ongoing process leading up to launch next year, and over time Funcom will invite a growing number of testers to participate as more content and more gameplay features are introduced to for players to test. Funcom will also hold an Open Beta test with an extended number of participants prior to launch, and anyone registering for the Closed Beta will also be eligible for access to the Open Beta.

“We are heading into very exciting times,” says Executive Producer for ‘LEGO Minifigures Online’ at Funcom, Lawrence Poe. “Closed Beta is first and foremost an incredibly important tool which allows us to receive valuable feedback from our audience, feedback that we can use to improve the experience and make it the best possible game before we launch it to the masses. The whole team is looking forward to opening the door and letting players come in and experience some of the great stories, content and gameplay that we are creating.”

In ‘LEGO Minifigures Online’ you once again get to visit Pirate World, Space World, Medieval World and many others, as you play together with thousands of other players while collecting minifigures and developing their unique and powerful abilities. Smash, build and collect — thousands of exciting adventures are just a brick away in ‘LEGO Minifigures Online’!

This sounds pretty cool, but I’m a bit of a sucker for all things LEGO!  The team at Funcom have absolutely captured the look and feel of the little minifigs.
