Plus first details on the LEGO diorama building game’s new Creative Mode.
LEGO Builder’s Journey is now available on PS5 and PS4, we are very proud to bring even more playful game experiences to players.
As a brand new feature in the game, you can unleash your creativity and build and share your own creations in Creative Mode. This is a much-requested feature where you can go and build your own models or scenes with a curated selection of LEGO bricks.
There are several available themes and different options for build plates to start out with: Some have a bit of inspiration built in from the start like the lower half of a car, while some plates leave more room for you to be creative in your build out.
We have kept the controls and interface as simple as the rest of the game: When you open a brick bin, you get a curated selection of bricks to build with. Placing a brick automatically gives you another one in the same shape and color – which is great for building symmetrical things. If you open the bin again, you get a new selection of bricks. The paint bucket can be used to dye your bricks by literally pouring paint over them to change their color.
Once your creation is done, the photo mode lets you adjust the lighting and viewing angle before taking the perfect picture of your model and sharing it with friends.
The vision for Builder’s Journey was to create a different kind of LEGO game – one that puts the bricks at the center of the experience. The main part of the game is about building with bricks to complete small diorama-based puzzles that also tell a story about a child and a parent, and the importance of playing together.
The music, art, design, and animations all come together to bring a non-verbal, atmospheric experience of soothing cerebral mind exercises and creative solutions to the game’s challenges. Sometimes thinking out of the box, getting new ideas and breaking the rules is the only way to move forward.
Everything in the game from the waterfalls and trees to the characters and machines is built with LEGO bricks. Our designers have come up with some really unusual and unexpected uses for certain LEGO elements – try and see if you can spot peculiar ways we use bricks like sausages, cherries or roller skates.
The PS5 version of the game features ray tracing for an unprecedented realistic rendition of the LEGO bricks. The micro scale scenes really come to life to the point where it feels like you can reach out and pick up the bricks.
We hope you will give LEGO Builder’s Journey and the new Creative Mode a try.
