NetDevil’s LEGO Universe, the fully customizable massively multiplayer online LEGO game for PC and Mac, is finally coming together. While still in closed beta, the game has officially gone gold today and will go live for public consumption next month.

For North America, the full launch will take place on October 26th, when the boxed DVD releases hits store shelves. However, those who pre-order the game will receive access to the game world two weeks ahead of everyone else on October 12th, in addition to an exclusive in-game outfit, a launch bonus pack and a limited edition Minifigure.

As an MMO, LEGO Universe will require a paid subscription fee to play. The game itself, which will be distributed by Warner Bros., will retail for $40 and come with a free first month of play time. After that you’re looking at subscription options of $9.99 per month, $49.99 for six months, or $89.99 for a full year.

If you’d like to see more about what LEGO Universe has to offer, scroll on down for four new videos — two behind-the-scenes diaries discussing the game’s robust creation tools, plus two gameplay clips showing off character customization and mini-games — and a stack of screenshots and artwork. Please do put in the time to take in all the media. I think you’ll come away very impressed by the love, care and enthusiasm NetDevil is putting into this project to ensure it is the ultimate LEGO video game experience.
