Disney announced today that Traveler’s Tales will be adding to the LEGO gaming line (Star Wars, Indy, Harry Potter, and Batman) with Pirates of the Caribbean in May. The LEGO game will be based on the initial trilogy of Pirates movies as well as On Stranger Tides. The game will feature two-player co-op as well as twenty levels based on the movies. You can probably expect the same level of customization that was found in the previous LEGO games.
â€œPirates of the Caribbean is a globally successful franchise based in action, adventure and humor perfectly suited for a LEGOÂ Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game adaptation,â€ said Graham Hopper, executive vice president and general manager, Disney Interactive Studios. â€œCombining the excitement of playing as Jack Sparrow and other recognizable characters from the franchise will make the game fun for players of all ages throughout the world.â€
â€œThe action-packed world of Pirates of the Caribbean is a perfect fit for LEGO video games,â€ said Tom Stone, Managing Director of TT Games Publishing. â€œWith so many wonderful characters, in such amazing environments, our teams are having great fun â€“ and weâ€™re sure that players will, too.â€
Also, if you’re old enough to remember the awesome LEGO Pirates sets; they will get a new life when they release actual Pirates of the Caribbean LEGO sets around the same time.
