LEGO 2K Drive has been revealed by 2K and LEGO Group, and it will be the first game in a multi game partnership that will see 2K develop a number of LEGO games. LEGO 2K Drive is being developed by Visual Concepts. LEGO 2K Drive is not too far away either, as it will be available from May 19th for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Switch.
“Video games have long been an important way our fans experience the magic of the LEGO System-in-Play, and 2K’s strong track record of delivering quality, innovative titles for a broad range of audiences makes them the perfect partner to create the next iconic AAA LEGO games,” said Remi Marcelli, Head of LEGO GAME. “Beginning with LEGO 2K Drive, we’re excited for fans to experience a fresh new take that builds on the LEGO humor and fun fans have come to expect.”
“With the history the LEGO brand holds, we were very conscious of the responsibility we had to both our partners and longtime fans of LEGO play, while still thinking about how we can bring something new and unique to a LEGO title,” said Greg Thomas, President of Visual Concepts. “For LEGO 2K Drive, we assembled a best-in-class team of game makers who poured their hearts into an unforgettable experience we can’t wait to share with fans.”
LEGO 2K Drive is set in the open world of Bricklandia which is made up of various biomes. Across these biomes there are rivals to beat on the road to winning the Sky Cup. Players will be able to go across the open world competing in races as well as taking part in challenges and minigames. Customisation will be a huge part of the game with over 1000 LEGO pieces being made available, meaning there are a whole load of ways to build your LEGO racer.
