GDC Preview: Lego Pirates of the Caribbean

Posted on Wednesday, March 2 @ 07:27:04 Eastern by


In time for the fourth movie in Jack Sparrow's adventures, Lego Pirates of the Caribbean will span all four movies with the lovable attachment (and detachment) the Lego franchise is known for. The level shown in the demo had our trusty pirate rolling inside a ball and up the side of a mountain as he collected Lego nubs (coins, really), dodged the spears of the island's aborigines, and solved many a bridge puzzle; that is, before the ball crashes into the ground and forces Jack to slice some Lego bushes for hearts and swashbuckle (it should be a verb) his way through the island.


The central innovation this time around is the ability to have a crew of eight people and be able to switch between them on the fly. This means that players will need to choose certain characters for certain tasks, like picking a dog for digging up treasure. The 3DS version only had enough RAM to sustain a crew of one, but the rest of the console port looks to be exactly the same. Players can also join up with a friend for some two-player drop-in/drop-out play, and as always, dying doesn't mean game over, just the loss of some (precious, precious) nubs. Lego Pirates of the Caribbean will raid stores this May for all major consoles.
