Lego Minifigures Online game details revealed

Funcom have revealed the details of their new Lego MMORPG: Set to launch late next year is Lego Minifigures Online, featuring the designs from the Collectable Minifigures in adventures spanning multiple themed environments, including Pirate World, Space World, Medieval World, and Mythology World. Players will be able to explore those worlds, while building, unbuilding (aka destroying stuff), and battling. Each of the minifigures will have unique abilities, and most intriguingly future series of the Collectable Minifigures will come with codes, linking the real world toys with their online counterparts. Here's a trailer:
