Gameloft reveals new LEGO-themed team-battle RPG for Android and iOS
LEGO fans rejoice, as Gameloft has just announced a brand new RPG for Android and iOS set in the LEGO universe. Originally teased back in December, LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed will be released this fall, but it will be regularly shown to fans until then at various events.

According to the French studio, this is the first ever LEGO game of this genre and it's meant to bring to life 40 years of LEGO minifigure history and universes in a fun and epic way. Apparently, LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed is set in a completely new LEGO world, as players will have to collect classic and modern LEGO minifigures and sets with which to create new parties and engage in team battles and adventures.


Naturally, the game will include iconic, fan favorite universes, recreated with stunning detail to cater to players of all ages. The developers also promise to keep everything included in the game faithful to the LEGO franchise. In order to do that, the folks at Gameloft studied vintage instruction manuals to try to recreate every detail that makes the LEGO experience so memorable.

LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed will probably be available for free, but we expect it to be heavy on the in-app purchases. Gameloft's new LEGO mobile game shapes up to be quite interesting, so let's hope their monetization system won't be too intrusive.

I've lost all hope in Gameloft games. Back in the day they were the king for me, $5-$10 games that were actually fun and deep. Hero of Sparta, Dungeon Hunter 2, early Asphalt games....and then came the freemium model. I know it's how they make money, but seeing these great graphics and mechanics put into games that are just absolutely un-fun...it's a real shame

I'm currently beta testing Mario Kart Tour, and have hit the paywall. And since microtransactions aren't allowed in beta, the game has come to a screeching halt. Moral of the story......avoid these type of games, unless you like wasting your hard earned money.
