Content Update 2 Edit
(Released August 24, 2015)|Game Version: Build ID 746620
Underwater – Explore and build underwater. If you find yourself running out of air, try the sub or one of those characters that can breathe (or doesn’t need to breathe) underwater…
Building Challenge Models! The selected models of the free build challenge will now be in the game as a part of the games base content! A full review of the challenge can be seen here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/332310/discussions/0/535150948593217991/
Discoveries – For the first time, players will have to do a little more work to discover some of the characters and creatures. This is the first step to what we believe will be a more rewarding Discovery system. But what if you already have everything? Well, you’ll still see the same things but there’s also a new option to reset your save game – without affecting your worlds or brick builds, naturally – so you can start discovering again from scratch. We would highly suggest people give this a try (make a backup of your save data if you want the ability to revert!)
Map – Never get lost again, unless like us you can’t actually read a map... Anyway, you can’t miss it – it’s got some great features like adding and removing waypoints ( also appear as beams in the world) and different zoom levels. You can tune it up or turn it off too, and just have the beams – let us know how you use it.
The Camera Item – Snap happy users can take screenshots using the in-game Camera item to capture their favourite builds, creatures or rocks! Warning: taking a picture of a LEGO Jacket Potato doesn’t suddenly make it interesting!
Virtual Floor – We’ve added a new sub-feature to Brick Building and Tools. This option is an easy way to build in the air, or add detail to a specific layer, or to keep some of your hard work protected while you go crazy creatively. We also slipped in a ‘free’ related feature on the mouse that allows you to place individual bricks in free space at the cross-hair cursor, rather like when using a controller, without altering the way it works normally.
LXFML Export update – We’ve updated the LXFML export tool to now include props! Any props you place will now be stored within the model data, meaning you’re able to pack up your house and place exactly as it is anywhere you like! We wouldn’t recommend putting your perfect house too close to the Junkyard though, it’ll halve the value!
Tracking Camera – We’ve added a new Camera Mode. This is a more rigid setup that requires the player to control rotation and distance a lot more, as opposed to the regular Chase Camera.
GUI – The grids in the various menus have had a little bit of a summer clean and are now neater on screen and easier to see. This is in advance of a more significant set of improvements, coming soon to an awesome LEGO game near you.
Info Box – You can now hold the BACK button (on a wired XBOX360 controller) to turn it on and off, instead of having to navigate the pointer. As with the GUI grids, this is a small convenience in advance of bigger improvements.
Abilities – There are quite a few cool / awesome / funny little things going into this update. We might tease some of them, but for now you’ll have to wait.
Content – Well, we said above there’s less emphasis on new content, but you can still expect a few new discoveries, plus the winning competition builds. And don’t forget ongoing new animations and audio! We’ve also updated the interactions and functionality of a few items. Hopefully you can SEE the improvement…
Added Language support – we have now included support for the following languages: Italian, Japanese, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese, Dutch, Chinese, Mexican Spanish
On top of all of the above we also have the following patch notes for Bug fixing:
- Various crash fixes (including the most commonly reported)
- Resolved an issue where placing lava was causing FPS drops
- Resolved a physics issue that was causing certain creatures to be launched into the sky
- Resolved an issue where certain post-process lighting effects would stop working over time
- Corrected text in certain control scheme information boxes
- Resolved an issue that was causing steam screenshot feature to take 2 screenshots instead of just 1
- Resolved a graphical issue caused by returning to the front end with certain characters active
- Fixed certain creatures missing skydive animations
- Resolved an issue that was causing the base of characters feet to appear to be filled when in certain contexts
- Resolved an issue with flying vehicles clipping into terrain when attempting to land
- Undo/Redo functionality within the paint tool should now be working correctly
- Stopped an exploit that allowed players to break the maximum place able water container size
- Werewolf’s ground slam now has audio attributed
- Resolved an issue where props would reappear after being deleted and reloading the world
- Resolved various issues related to the physics of small parts
- Changes made to the maximum allowable number of spawned vehicles, as well as how the game handles this limit
- The tree of the creator house now correctly has parts when broken
- Resolved an issue where creatures spawning in caves would ping to the surface
- Stopped the Werewolf’s superjump ability from being activated when interacting with props
- Various GUI interaction improvements (Changes largely deal with accuracy of detection)
- Fixed an issue where characters would get stuck in a specific facial expression
- All creatures should now spawn parts when destroyed
- Fixed an issue that allowed planes to spawn in caves
- Various missing audio files added (Specific character contexts where missing their associated audio)
- Elephant should no longer flicker
- Resolved an issue causing certain bricks to be rendered invisible
- Resolved an issue where resetting to skydive whilst in the werewolf’s superjump context would cause the player to lose control of the active character.
- Biomes. (Updated: Ocean - new props, water is now functional)
- Items. (New: Dragon Egg, Flintlock Pistol, Gladiator Sword; renamed Apple to Apple (Green); Updated functions for Binoculars and Camera.)
- Characters. (New: Gingerbread Man, Research Institute Paleontologist, Updated: Yeti given new idle animations and hands changed to blue. Diver (Male)] now spawns in Ocean, Many Characters now require Items to unlock.)
- Creatures. (New: Dog, Frog, Glaciator, Spider, Many Creatures now require Items to unlock.)
- Vehicles. (Renamed: City Car to Swamp Police 4x4 and Swamp Boat to Swamp Police Boat)
- Props. (Names for all props)
- Brick Builds. (New: Contest winning Brick Builds have been added to the default Brick Build inventory. Currently, they appear first.)
Announced Features as of Update 2: These Features are Announced to be integrated into the game by release in early 2016.
- Like/Dislike system for tailoring World Generation
- LEGO ID integration to allow for sharing and uploading of in-game builds
- Additional Biomes
- Painting Themes
- Online Multiplayer
- Pre-Generated Towns/Villages/Settlements relevant to the Biome
- Updated AI Behaviors to provide organic feeling to free-roaming creatures and characters
Content Update 3: October 30, 2015 Edit
Announcement: Update 3 is live! Hello!
Update 3 is now live! So what are you waiting for?! DOWNLOAD IT NOOOOWWW!!!
Here’s a rundown on the feature updates;
Quest System Improvements Several Characters now also have quests AFTER they’re unlocked. This will allow us to author more interesting quests down the line and even allow for us to create random events that occur within the worlds. Perhaps you’ll find some spooky goings-on?
Updated Skybox A huge overhaul to the skybox system shows off much improved visuals during both day and night and sees a vast improvement to the natural lighting. From the warm glow of sunrise, through to the twinkling starry nights, your world looks drastically more alive. And fear not, the improved lighting is actually more efficient than the previous setup, so performance won’t suffer because of it.
Vehicle Camera Fixes We’ve improved the vehicle physics and sharpened up the camera while you’re in vehicles. The controls still remain the same for now – with options to come a little later – but these changes mean the vehicles now handle more like you’d expect when using WASD.
Fixtures and Fittings Does your house have a noticeable breeze/blizzard/volcanic burn running through it? Not sure we can do much about the last one without some industrial air conditioning, but for the rest there is now a selection of working doors and windows in the Brick Building tool! Time to renovate your existing models and make some new ones too! We’ll add more to future updates, and we certainly haven’t forgotten about other bricks, which will come in the future too.
More Varied Item Discoveries Tied in to the quest system, some item discoveries now make more sense. For example, we recently unearthed the shocking revelation that apples are actually found on trees rather than in chests as previously thought, so you’ll have to find a suitable tree and give it a whack. There are a number of other examples, but we’re not telling you all of them, that’s your job to figure out.
Brick Build Blueprints As well as finding cool items in big chests, you’ll now also have a chance of finding a blueprint for some super cool brick builds. When found, they’ll be added to your brick builds grid in the menu allowing you to place it whenever you want.
Picture Album Remember those pictures you took with the camera? Now you don’t need to go foraging for them on your computer, you can view and delete them on the front end.
Items Backpack We’re adding a very simple but much quicker way to get to your items. Like many of you, we feel it’s important for gameplay that we don’t keep them embedded in the menus any longer, especially now they’re becoming more fun and useful.
Minimap Update We’ve added a nice little feature to the minimap. If you click on it (mouse & keyboard only for now), you will be given a 3D overview of the areas in the world you’ve visited, similar to the preview when you choose your world on the front end. It’s great for tracking progress and finding your bearings!
Content There are several new characters (which are SPOOKILY relevant to the time of year), vehicles and props available to discover and unlock too. Make sure to consult with other players to see where they can be found – some of them are really quite rare!
We’ve also got a full Patch Notes to accompany the feature updates:

Forcing the Update to Download
Usually Steam will automatically download the Update for you as soon as you sign-in, however, if you have the game running already, or if there’s some reason that is hasn’t automatically triggered you’ll need to manually force it doing the following:
• Log into Steam (make sure it’s running in Online mode!) • Go to your Library • Right Click on LEGO Worlds and select Properties • Click the ‘Local Files’ tab • Click on ‘Verify integrity of Game Cache’
The download will now begin!
Let us know how you’re getting on with the new update in the discussion below! And once again, we want to thank everyone for their continued responses and feedback! It’s been very fun reading and watching everyone’s various comments and videos!
We’re likely going to roll out a small patch at some point next week to address a couple of minor Localisation updates and the odd tweak here and there, but we’ll keep an eye out for any majors that people find too and see if we can fit those in.
Finally, don’t forget, we’ve got a live Building Challenge on the go right here too: http://steamcommunity.com/app/332310/discussions/0/483368526574411171/

Title Update 1: May 5, 2017 Edit
v1.1 Now Live! - Sandbox Mode Added Hi everyone!
We’re pleased to announce that Title Update 1 for LEGO® Worlds is now live! This update has added a few heavily requested features, as well as adding additional content and lots of new tweaks that we have made as well!
SANDBOX MODE We’ve added 'Sandbox Mode’! This is a fully creative building experience for LEGO Worlds: you’ll have all of the tools, objects and bricks unlocked from the start. Let your imagination run wild!
We’ve kept some of the rarest, harder to find creatures locked until they’re found in Adventure Mode.
This mode will also skip our tutorial worlds, so we recommend that beginner players try Adventure mode first in order to get to grips with the tools.
LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS AND LEGO CITY EMERGENCY CONTENT Keep an eye out for new models in the Brick Build Showcase. These will be updated regularly and will not only be brick built models but will often include new characters, creatures, vehicles, props and items from the LEGO Nexo Knight and LEGO City Emergency themes, with other themes to follow. Don’t forget to add them to your collections!
UI ALTERATIONS After a bit of a review, we have given the UI a few tweaks to help clean it up. That includes the Front Menu and the removal of a few prompts from in-game.

Also, we have a new Community Manager that has joined us at TT Games. Bear will be on here soon to introduce himself to you all!

1. You can now toggle first-person on/off as well as using zoom. 2. The camera when using the tools now has collision.

October 26, 2017: Title update 3:Edit
Title Update 3 + Monsters DLC releases tomorrow! OCTOBER 25 - TTCROSE Hi everyone!
Before we go any further, we would like to take this opportunity to thank those who post their opinions and share their thoughts on Worlds so far, on what they both like and dislike. As avid gamers ourselves we keep an eye on all formats of feedback from video reviews to popular forum websites, and this both helps and informs us as they are very valuable forms of feedback. We are always aiming to improve Worlds as an experience. This leads us into our next point, and to talk about the upcoming patch.
The next big patch after this one, is very much a quality of life patch and should be addressing a number of issues that we have collated and addressed as being of high importance tweaks or features. As a game that’s based on LEGO building as its core, we have spent our time this patch on improving the building tools by tweaking their functionality and adding features to improve and enhance players ability to be creative with LEGO. We have also looked into many bug fixes and we are constantly looking into improving performance and stability on all formats moving forward.
To us, Worlds is a living breathing project and one that, although isn’t counted as being in early access anymore, is one that we believe can be enhanced each time we create a big patch. Each big title update will often have a goal, this one was to enhance and improve the building experience and tools used to build, the next big patch will have a different function (Not telling ). In the coming weeks, we will be releasing the patch on all formats and an accompanying video created by the very talented Bear Parker to show off everything new, and to showcase the patch on our social media outlets. We look forward to you guys getting your hands on it and more importantly await the community’s feedback.
So without further ado, let’s see what is coming up for Worlds in Title Update 3!
The Planner Tool
Introducing the Planner, a tool designed to build a house rapidly and with ease! Use the various materials and pre-built wall types to get your new house/town/city underway! You can find the Planner Tool underneath the Build Tool sub-menu options.
Another update to the Build tool! Instead of just tapping the button to place it, you can now hold the placement button to draw in an entire wall.
Discoveries Grid changes
After many content updates, DLC and Showcase Content, we’ve come to the conclusion that the Discovery Menu is no longer fulfilling its purpose. As a result, we’ve now added a tabbed system to make it much cleaner to find what you’re looking for, including the addition of Categories to help narrow down exactly what you’re after. Oh, and to make things even simpler, we’ve added a search function so you can really narrow down the ever-expanding list of Discoveries. And check out the Silhouettes to the grids so you can see exactly how much you’re missing! Additionally, you can now delete Custom Characters and Custom LXFMLs too! Sorry that took a while!
Ever dreamed of being a Movie Director? Perhaps a YouTube personality? Maybe you just love the idea of taking some lovely wallpaper worthy screenshots? Well we have the car for you! A vehicle that can be utilised by either one player or two, providing you with all you need to set some epic action sequences, or possibly re-create that documentary you watched.
We’ve slightly updated the waypoints. Instead of them scattering around everywhere, they’re much more localised to the area you operate in, and have clearer indications of exactly what they point to.
We’ve slightly tweaked the Galaxy Map again too! We put the options behind a slider (cleverly disguised as PUG-Z) and made it all just a little tidier. Also, instead of a white 2D rocket, a micro-build of PUG-Z flies around the planet you are now on. Much nicer.
New Landscape Tool shapes
We’ve added a few new shapes to the Landscape tools, to further improve just how you edit your Worlds! Press the ‘Shape’ button while you have a Landscape tool open to see all the new options you have at hand!
We’ve made an alteration to how the Copy Tool functions on Controller. You can still choose an exact size, but we’ve also added a nice and simple ‘Hold to expand’ option instead of opening up the box with multiple options.
OK, so that covers the major features, and with Monsters on the way, you should be kept busy until we roll out the final update of 2017 and run headfirst into 2018. Oh and for 2018, let us tell you, that will be well worth keeping an eye on. A few features that have been discussed before will finally live….LIVE WE SAY!!!

Today we released a new patch for LEGO Worlds across Xbox One, PS4 and PC, with Switch due to roll-out sometime next week.
It is a general housekeeping patch with several bug fixes, as well as updating a backend Analytics system that we use to help us track player behaviour data, as well as performance data we use to help improve the games general stability and terrain generation.
In the interest of absolute transparency, it is worth highlighting that this Analytics system can be opted out of at any time from the Main Menu settings options, and that there is no way we can physically track who you are through this system. The system randomly assigns a very long number to each users save game, meaning that in no way can we ever link back to find out who you are through this data. So rest assured that this information is perfectly secure and also in-line with the upcoming GDPR changes rolling out within the EU soon!
On top of that, we have a host of bug fixes to share with you in our patch notes:
General Stability Improvements (ALL FORMATS)
- Updated Analytics Tracking Software (ALL FORMATS)
- Fixed issue with “Designers Delight” Achievement/Trophy not unlocking
without having Classic Space and Monsters DLC installed. (XB1/PS4/PC)
- Showcase Models associated Vehicles will now spawn on Custom Worlds (PC)
- Fixed Online Crash when re-joining an active online game (Switch/XB1)
- Fixed Online Crash when attempting to join Online Game for first time (PC/PS4)
- “Keep Worlds Edits: Disabled” now functioning as expected in all worlds (Switch)
- Fixed potential Landscape Tools Crash (XB1)
- Fixed timeout errors for Showcase Previews (XB1)
- Fixed rare General Gameplay Crash on PS4 PRO
- Fixed occurrences of Edits not being saved despite having free Save Space to do so (ALL FORMATS).
Just an FYI; there's news coming this week on something we're releasing, and there's also more to come in the next couple of months again (and the rest of the year looks packed out now too!)
Thanks, THE LEGO WORLDS TEAM
