Last year we brought news that Disney Interactive Studios have teamed up with TT Games to bring the latest in their Lego games range and this time Pirates of the Caribbean would be getting the treatment. LEGO® Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game is an action adventure game bringing to life the Pirates of the Caribbean world and all its colourful characters in LEGO brick form. Players will experience all the memorable scenes from the first three films, as well as those in the upcoming fourth film, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” in the humorous and quirky LEGO video games style.
The game, due out in May 2011, will be available as a single or two-player co-op game on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo DS and Wii. It will follow the same pattern as previous Lego games and include some fantastic features.
Exploration – Players will explore familiar locations filled with interactive LEGO objects and encounter more than 70 memorable and new characters while making their way through more than 20 levels
Combat – The LEGO Caribbean is full of danger! Intense sword fighting moves give the LEGO minifigure a brand new pirate flavor
Unforgettable Cut Scenes – Everyone’s favorite scenes from the Pirates of the Caribbean films are re-rendered with LEGO minifigures, in the humorous style synonymous with LEGO video games
Puzzles – Players will need all their pirate cunning to find the hidden LEGO treasures and discover the game’s many secrets
Two-Player Co-op – Players can join a friend or family member in the same room for two-player “drop-in/drop-out” cooperative action
Freeplay – Building a collection of characters throughout the game, players can then use their distinctive abilities to gain access to previously unavailable areas
Want to see what it looks like? Well here is some of the initial Concept art for the developers.
The action adventure game will include all of the characters we have grown to love in their own Lego character. Meet Will for the first time, fall in love with Elizabeth, battle the Kraken and take part in new adventures from the latest instalment, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Check out the teaser trailer
Here at Disneybrit HQ, we are certainly looking forward to the first Disney related Lego Adventure. The screenshots from the game are certainly looking very encouraging
