Billund, Denmark - June 15, 2010 The LEGO Group today announced that LEGO® Universe will launch this October in the US, UK and Western Europe. The first MMOG (massively-multiplayer online game) based on the LEGO play experience, LEGO Universe will offer early access to LEGO fans - the “Founders” - starting October 12th, and will officially launch on October 26th.

The Founders release makes LEGO Universe available to LEGO fans before the official launch, with the game sold exclusively through LEGO channels including LEGO Stores, LEGO Online Shop and LEGOLAND. On October 26th, the MMOG will officially launch through all retail channels via a distribution partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.

E3 visitors are able to preview LEGO Universe in the Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment booth at the Los Angeles Convention Center, South Hall #2401.
