The vibrant world of LEGO Minifigures Online is soon to undergo changes in its financial approach as developers Funcom announce that it will soon be adopting a buy-to-play revenue model on PC, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android later this Summer – supporting full cross-platform play.

The team thanked the community for their continued feedback and assistance in helping making the LEGO Minifigures Online a better experience for all. Funcom have taken the feedback into consideration and will be reviewing future feedback to aid in the release of new content and expansions.

“The initial run on PC has been very valuable for us and we have learned a great many things about the game and its audience. No doubt free-to-play can be a great offering, but it is not necessarily the best option for any game. The model in itself can be challenging with a young audience, and we also saw that it had a detrimental effect on gameplay and the kids’ enjoyment of the game. As a result, we are taking the necessary steps needed to make sure we unlock the full potential of LEGO® Minifigures Online and make it an enjoyable experience for LEGO fans of all ages.”Funcom CEO, Rui Casais

Funcom will be releasing more information on the buy-to-play model closer to launch later this year.
