Gameloft and the LEGO Group Unveil “LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed”

40 years of LEGO minifigure history at your fingertips: the first bricks of the upcoming new LEGO mobile game are out of the box

Paris, May 23rd, 2019 – Gameloft, one of the world’s leading publishers of mobile games, and the LEGO Group today revealed the title of their upcoming  game: LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed. This Team-Battle RPG, the first ever LEGO game of this genre, will bring to life 40 years of LEGO minifigure history and universes in a fun and epic way.

LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed is set in a whole new LEGO world where players will collect classic and modern LEGO minifigures and sets, form a party and engage in epic and fun team battles and adventures. The game will feature iconic, fan favorite universes from yesterday and today, recreated with incredible detail to please players of all ages, from the passionate collectors to those who want to bring back childhood memories.

A first glimpse of how the signature humor of the LEGO brand has been built into the game can be found in the teaser trailer, also revealed today. The beloved Captain Redbeard from Set 6270 (1989) emerges from his dusty box in the attic and sets sail for adventure after all these years… he may not be ready yet! Indeed, LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed is set to be released this Fall, but until then Gameloft Toronto will be adding content and completing features.

The studio has been working closely with the LEGO Group for several years, including visits to the LEGO Vault in Billund, Denmark where all the sets and minifigures ever created are archived. The team has been studying vintage instruction manuals and focusing all its skills to perfectly recreate every tiny detail that makes the LEGO experience so enjoyable and memorable. LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed will be faithful to the fun and creativity that make the LEGO brand one of the most beloved brands on Earth.

“LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed is built to bring the enjoyment and fun that you once had, or still have, with LEGO toys,” stated Baudouin Corman, Chief Operating Officer at Gameloft. “We are excited to see these authentic and original LEGO characters from all eras come to life. We have been putting all our efforts, art and craft into this game as we want to delight all LEGO fans, whether their minifigures are tucked away in the attic or proudly shown in the living room.”

Sean McEvoy, Vice President of LEGO Games at the LEGO Group said: “LEGO Games have reached millions of LEGO fans of all ages for over 20 years, extending and amplifying the LEGO play universe.  Enabling our fans to play epic battles with minifigures from our history is a great play promise we are delighted to offer. Gameloft has done fabulous work, maintaining every character’s unique personality and reflecting all the fun, creativity and humor of the LEGO brand in a mobile game.”

LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed is set to be released in Fall 2019 and will be regularly showcased to fans until then, beginning at Brickworld Chicago on June, 15th and 16th. Be sure to visit www.LEGOLEGACY.com to get the latest news on the game.

A promising concept, to say the least. I've always loved nods to classic themes and minifigures, as goes for many of you, so this is an awesome project to be keeping an eye on the coming months.
I'm hoping themes such as Rock Raiders, Adventurers (Johnny Thunder!) and perhaps even LEGO Island, a nod to the first LEGO game, will also appear, even if castle, pirates and space are the most obvious choices.

Discuss away!

Gameloft are determined to get my money. 

Pepper Roni and The Infomaniac had better be there! Also I am hoping for Johnny Thunder, of course. 

Ogel and the Alpha Team would be great fun too. :thumbup:

I am terribly bad at tactical games though. Hey.

Hoping it's a little less dull and borderline-exploitative than the MLP game Gameloft did. Gameloft is notorious for the seedier types of video game monetization, but Lego notably isn't, so it could go either way.

I've got my eyes on this, especially since they mentioned roleplaying elements. Just have to make sure it isn't one of those "pay to win" type of games...

This came as a rather surprise for me, but a welcome one for sure. I will go get it the day one it's released, no matter if  it's free or not. 

I really hope Bionicle makes an aparence in some way, shape or form.
